The 350Z proves that Nissan can make a sports car that is reliable and well built, but also involving to drive with great performance. It's a sharply styled two seater that's also available as a roadster, but perhaps the biggest attraction is that it's such great value for money, especially compared to more prestigious alternatives from Porsche or BMW.

The 350Z proves that Nissan can make a sports car that is reliable and well built, but also involving to drive with great performance. It's a sharply styled two seater that's also available as a roadster, but perhaps the biggest attraction is that it's such great value for money, especially compared to more prestigious alternatives from Porsche or BMW.

It does have a poorly designed boot though - the space is limited due to a large support brace - while the quality of the cabin on early cars was below usual Nissan standards. The Z has undergone several tweaks since it was first launched in 2003 including more powerful engines and some much needed interior improvements in 2006. It was upgraded again in 2007 with an extensively modified engine identifed by a bulging bonnet.

 Nothing is practial about this car. Its perfect for those without a family or anything to transport.

 Not a car you'd buy for practicality, but you know that already, surely.

 Lol nothing! The boot space is spoilt by the strut brace. Theres a good selection of cubby holes and the lock box behind the passengers seat is big enough for a large cd case. Theres no glove box...
