Looking for 10 Nissan 370Z competitors to consider throws up a crucial point: There aren’t that many direct rivals — coupes or convertibles with a 332-horsepower V6 driving the rear wheels, especially with a heritage like the Z cars from Nissan/Datsun. But take the basic formula of a car aimed at enthusiasts, with a budget in the low-to-mid $30,000s (or mid-to-high $40,000s if a convertible is preferred), and several interesting choices spring up.
The 370Z is still wonderfully fun, despite its advancing years. Generationally speaking, it’s the oldest car in its segment. But there’s nothing wrong with a traditional front-engine/rear-drive layout and a decent amount of muscle. Let’s see what else might inspire.
