Nissan 307Z Roadster Touring

It is very true. Convertible cars are not for everyone. If the weather is not hot and sunny, well, the model will not be able to keep their promises of offering comfortable, chilling atmosphere. A lot of customers are willing to give it all away for a convertible, but not everyone. The problem of privacy is also a big issue with convertibles. Now we will present a new model, one that almost tricks the ones that are no convertible fans into trying it. We are talking about the new Japanese 2013 Nissan 307Z Roadster.

The carmaker established a starting price of $50.055, which includes the $780 destination charge. Just for comparison, the starting price of the base 370 Roadster is $41.470 and the base price of a 2013 Ford Mustang GT Convertible V8 capable of developing 420 horsepower is $35.300. Anyway, the 2013 Nissan 307Z Roadster is powered by a 3.7-liter V6 engine capable of developing 332 horsepower and 270 lb. ft. of torque. To send the output to the wheels, the engineers have offered a six-speed manual transmission. The specialists recommend you operate the top with the parking brake engaged and the brake pedal depressed. The driver can actually choose any gear except the Reverse in order to flip its lid. If the car is moving, the top will not budge.

When it comes to its size, the new model is a lot like the small Miata. In terms of fuel consumption, the 2013 Nissan 307Z Roadster uses 17 mpg in the city and 24 mpg on the highway. The carmaker also recommends a premium fuel. The new Nissan has as rival the German Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class, the BMW Z4 and also the Porsche Boxster. The Camaro Convertible offers more power and it is more practical and the best of them all is that is costs less than the 307Z Roadster. We do not know if the new 2013 Nissan 307Z Roadster is such a great idea. There is a totally different situation with the hard top.
