SOLD March 2021
Sometimes I just need to make room for something new. This was my daily driver sports car- simple, reliable, and worry free. This was never intended to be an investment. However, after two years and 6,000 miles- Carvana paid me thousands (plural) more than I paid. It may be because, as I said in my story below- they would be missed. The 370z went out of production with the 2020 model year and their prices are now on the rise. Who knew.
This is an old car that you can still buy new. It was introduced in 2008 as a 09' model- and really has not changed since. Nissan seems to do that as a matter of course- if it ain't broken, sell it as long as you can. The 370z is a rear wheel drive, manual transmission, naturally aspirated, hydraulic steering, with all analog instrumentation- not a single color LCD screen in sight. All of which will never return in a single car. Great you say- who wants old tech, right? For those who prioritize cushy transportation, this isn't for you- and there are some days it's not for me either and I drive something else. However- as a drivers car that connects you to the machine and the road through most of your senses- its great, and when cars like this are gone they will be missed. One of the nicer aspects of this car is its reliability and that I never worry about the check engine light coming on, like I do every time I start some of the others in my collection. I also trust it to withstand teaching my younger son and soon to be driving daughter how to drive a manual transmission.
