Nissan 370Z Roadster Gets The Axe As Company Focuses On The Coupe

Nissan recently revealed pricing for the 2020 370Z Coupe, but the 370Z Roadster was notably absent from that list.

Now we know why as Nissan has confirmed the 370Z Roadster is being discontinued. In a statement to Motor Authority, Nissan product communications specialist Kyle Torrens said the company “will not offer the Roadster variant for the current-generation Z beginning with model year 2020.”

Autoblog received a similar statement confirming there will be no 370Z Roadster for 2020 as “Nissan will focus on the sale of the 370Z Coupe, NISMO and 50th Anniversary Edition.” We’ve reached out to Nissan to clarity if this decision is just for the US market and we’ll update this post if / when we hear back. [Update: The 370Z Roadster is just being discontinued in the United States]

There’s no word on why the 370Z Roadster was dropped, but the decision can likely be attributed to slow sales. 370Z sales have been declining in the United States since 2015 and last year the company only managed to sell 3,468 units.

Nissan doesn’t break down coupe and convertible sales figures, but the 370Z Coupe was likely more popular with consumers as 2019 model started at $29,990. The Roadster, on the other hand, had a base price of $41,820 and was available exclusively with a seven-speed automatic transmission.

Fans of the model can still pick one up as Autotrader shows there are at least 98 new 370Z Roadsters in the United States. People who do will find a familiar 3.7-liter V6 engine that produces 332 hp (248 kW / 337 PS) and 270 lb-ft (366 Nm) of torque.

    I won’t miss it, the coupe looks 100X better

      Indeed the coupe’s roofline is saucy. Take it off though, and you have a convertible that could star in a Sir Mix a Lot video. Baby got back!

    they need a new Z

    “Focuses”

  • ksegg

    Funniest damn article I’ve read all day. Focus on what exactly? A 10 going on 11 year old car?

    Are they going to focus on more hideous paint schemes and tacky add-ons?

    Poor sales??? Well DUH! Yeah because the car is so old. It’s a great car but Nissan seriously needs an all new Z. Especially since there’s a new Supra. I think if Nissan came out with an all new Z, it would do better than the new Supra because the Supra comes across too much as a BMW and I think that pissed a lot of Supra enthusiasts off. Not that said enthusiasts would go for a new Z instead but I have a feeling sales of the Supra won’t be that great and if an all new Z were built, it could sell better than the Supra.

      It is also kind of cheap now since they have not raised the price really in a long time.

  • DOESN’T LOOK LIKE NISSAN HAS “FOCUSED” ON THE 370Z IN QUITE SOME TIME.

  • Benjamin B.

    Nissan desperately needs a new Fairlady Z

  • Benjamin B.

    Actually yes and it was heavier and slower than the Coupe/hatchback.

  • Benjamin B.

    Been out for a decade. You really haven’t seen one? You must’ve forgotten about it.

  • Mr. EP9

    And no one is going to miss it.

    • Bo Hanan

      When was the last time anybody saw one?

  • Bash

    I never knew they ever focused on the 370Z ever since they launched it 10 years ago!!

    • JGreen

      Almost none at all. Maybe only LED running lights, Active Noise Cancellation, and a Hatch Release Button.

  • Mitt Zombie

    THe 370z might be Nissan;s best car since they have not updated ti with the complete garbage they use in most cars now.

  • Matthijs

    I loved the 350Z (my brother just bought one) but the 370Z has never been very pretty. Too bulky

  • ksegg

    Whereas what we want is just a grassroots sports car, they’ll probably give us a new Z Crossover and say THIS IS THE FUTURE!
