The 350Z bowed for 2003, sharing components with the Infiniti G-series. A focused and capable sports car, acceleration is very quick and handling is good, though not as agile as some. The six-speed manual has a notchy shifter. Keep in mind we're talking budget sports car here, so the ride is harsh, the cabin is cramped, and tire and road noise are pronounced. Rear visibility is also poor. A convertible with a power-operated top is available too. Later models had improved interior materials and a slightly better ride.
