2018 Nissan 370Z Heritage Edition

The model some have referred to as a “poor man’s Porsche” is nearing fifty years old, and although the current model hasn’t been heavily revised since its introduction in 2009, it’s still a performance bargain. (And a rarity: V6-powered two-seaters seem to be vanishing.) For 2018, Nissan has introduced a Heritage Edition a few years in advance of the anniversary. It’s essentially a base coupe model — the most popular of the Z lineup — with yellow and black or black and silver paint and trim treatments. Opt for the manual, which gets a new high-performance clutch for 2018.
