Nissan will welcome one last shipment of the venerable 370Z to Australia in the coming weeks, as it gears up to launch the new twin-turbo Z in 2022.

A Nissan Australia spokesperson has confirmed stock of the 370Z is still available at dealers, but customers won’t be able to make any more forward orders.

In other words, what’s landing on Australian shores is it. Once they’re gone, they’re gone.

According to VFACTS data, the outgoing 370Z was Australia’s second-best selling sports car in August 2021 behind the BMW 2 Series, outselling the Ford Mustang and Mazda MX-5.

Nissan Australia said demand for the outgoing model is strong, as customers snap what could be the last naturally-aspirated Z car.

The outgoing 2021 Nissan 370Z range kicks off at $50,490 before on-road costs for the manual coupe, and extends up to $64,490 for the Nismo automatic coupe.

Powering the 370Z range is a 3.7-litre V6 engine producing 253kW of power and 371Nm of torque in Nismo models, and 245kW and 363Nm in the regular models.

Mated to this is either a six-speed manual or seven-speed automatic.

The 370Z started life here in Australia in 2009 as the sixth-generation Z car revealed by Nissan.

It received one facelift in 2013, with a Nismo version joining the range in 2018.

The convertible 370Z was discontinued in 2020 with a coupe-only range continuing on for the 2021 model year.

Built on the Nissan FM platform, the 370Z shares its bones with the new Z.

Nissan Australia says that it has also experienced huge customer interest in the new Z since it was revealed globally.

Numerous Nissan dealers have already taken orders and deposits for the upcoming Z, even before Australian specification or pricing have been confirmed.

Powering the new Z is a 3.0-litre twin-turbocharged V6 engine with 298kW of power and 475Nm of torque, mated to either a six-speed manual or nine-speed auto.
