Nissan 350Z Models and 350Z History

Following six years from its discontinuation, the 350Z was revived once again in 2003, offering supreme handling, plenty of zip in the engine and signature luxury and technology features. The 2004 350z saw the addition of the roadster model with a top-down option. A new tire pressure monitoring system, improved clutch, updated GPS system and 35th Anniversary edition (with special wheels, badging, Brembo brakes, spoilers and two-toned leather) enticed buyers for 2005.

The 2006 350Z model year saw the horsepower jump to 300, alongside the introduction of larger rotors. All trim levels were updated for this model year with added performance options. A sexier and redesigned hood greeted buyers in 2007, offering an improved automatic transmission system, side impact airbags and Bluetooth integration. 2008 would see no major changes, with the model line being discontinued and replaced by the 370Z in 2009.
