Unfairly criticised by the majority of the motoring press but thats good news.

Not normally recognised in reviews, the weight and build quality compared to e.g. the boxster the 370Z is two passengers heavier. Also criticised has been the 'rough' V6 engine. Having driven all the competition, I am pleased to have chosen the Nissan.
After 50,000 + miles it returns 30 mpg on fast continental runs, (better than the 350Z) and 25 mpg around town. the gearbox and handling are first class and tyre noise is only an issue on the more aggressively surfaced roads.
A 'cool' feature is the heated, and forced air cooled seats not commonly reported upon and added comfort when touring abroad.
Only one problem has arisen, the hood control mechanism failed but was remedied free by Nissan.
The VHR (High revving) engine is a delight to drive in manual/paddle mode with the rev matching facility being additionally forgiving whilst practising it's option.
So do me a favour, do not buy one of these cars, keep the above to yourself and protect the uniqueness of the model !
