Read more

Comparing a front-wheel drive sports car with a rear-wheel drive machine is a little odd, especially when the two cars aren’t close in terms of power either.

Nevertheless, UK magazine AutoExpress decided to go for it, pitting the 266hp, front-wheel drive Peugeot RCZ R against the 350hp, rear-wheel drive Nissan 370Z Nismo.

No, we’re not jesting, it’s for real, apparently… Middle-aged Mark Parisi has announced on television that he is willing to have one of his testes removed as part of a medical trial and for this he will be remunerated with the distinctly average sum of $35,000, which is apparently the standard rate ‘nads go for these days…

Battle of the NISMOS: 370Z Raced Against Leaf RC Electric Prototype


Read more

Comparing a racer with a street-legal sports model is not that relevant, for neither of the two categories of vehicles. Furthermore, matching an EV racecar up against a gasoline sports car is even more far-fetched. Nevertheless, some of the most interesting reviews are those that don’t seem to make sense at a first glance.

Nissan Reportedly Looking to Introduce New Z-Car, Previewed by Tokyo Motor Show Concept


Read more

The motor show sidelines are an amazing place to learn new information from the industry – heck, some of it is so fresh and radical, it eventually fails to materialize, despite being passed on at the time with no intention to deceive. We therefore look with great interest and a little bit of skepticism at what Auto Express found out when speaking to Nissan’s development boss, Andy Palmer, at the Frankfurt motor show.

He explained that the manufacturer is really interested in delivering a new sports car, but it will be different to the current 370Z, and more importantly, it will not resemble the Toyota GT86 in any way.

Read more

While not a full-blown tuner itself, Miami-based wheel specialist Vossen, known to the masses mainly for its concave-design rims, gets all sorts of cars in its hands to be fitted with its alloy goods. When that happens and the vehicle in question is special enough, it also takes some artsy photos to share with the world.

That's the case with this purple-accent Nissan 370Z Coupe riding on the brand's 20-inch VVSCV4 wheels finished in a bespoke two-tone color theme that matches the rest of the car.

Nissan Compares 2014 GT-R Against 370Z Coupe and Infiniti FX on the Snow


Read more

That the GT-R is a high-performance sports car you can potentially use all year round and in a variety of weather conditions (just as long as you can afford the upkeep…), is a well-known and accepted fact, but how good is it really in snow and how does it compare to other vehicles?

Well, that's a question that would be better answered by someone not related to the company itself for apparent reasons, but that doesn’t mean we're not interested in what Nissan has to say about it in a new video it has released.
