The mental process is one of looking forward, almost straining to see your next marker as you go around the course. This line development goes on lap after lap, always looking for better references and establishing what works best with this car on this day. The work-the challenge of persuing perfection-is the fun part. ~Carl Lopez
The Motor Magazine - 05.03.2010 | drive it
Many people consider the Porsche 911 the benchmark against which all other
sports cars are measured. But its rivals are no longer limited to cars from
Italy. The Japanese have also shown they can build good sports cars. The
latest example comes from Nissan, the 370Z. Drive it compares the newcomer
with Porsche's latest 911 Carrera.
present it: The next generation Audi A8Audi has unveiled the third
generation of its A8 flagship luxury sedan. The all-aluminum car is bigger
than ever before, but also lighter and has all-wheel drive as standard
equipment with all available engines. The interior has been made even more
luxurious to suggest hand-made quality. Drive it tested the new A8 with a
250-hp 3.0 TDI.
examine it: Halogen vs. Xenon Seeing and being seen are indispensible parts
of automotive safety. Xenon headlight systems are becoming available as
optional equipment on a growing number of cars. But Xenon lights are also
significantly more expensive than conventional halogen lights. Drive it
wanted to know whether the extra investment is worth it. A side-by-side
test of various models with both kinds of lights.
compare it: Porsche 911 Carrera S and Nissan 370 Z Drive it looks at two
sports cars coveted by performance enthusiasts around the world. Both are
rear-wheel driven and have almost the same engine displacement - 3.7 liters
with the Nissan compared to 3.8 liters in the Porsche.But the Porsche, with
its timeless sleek lines, produces a whopping 385 hp. The more futuristic
Nissan gets by with just 328 hp. And which is the better sports car? drive
it finds out.
Test it! Mini One D Small and agile, fast and sporty is what Minis are
built to be. Until now, no-one paid much attention to their fuel
consumption, but a new model of the retro compact is now available with a
thrifty diesel engine.The Mini One D is powered by a 1.4 liter
Common-Rail-turbo diesel borrowed from
the Toyota Yaris. With its 90-hp engine, the little car does zero to 100
km/h in 11.5 seconds. Top speed is 182 km/h. Prices for the Mini One D
start 18,100 Euros in Germany.

2014 Nissan 370Z NISMO (344hp) - DRIVE & SOUND (1080p)
The full Autobahn test Drive and Country Road Sound check with the 2014
Nissan 370Z Nismo powered by a refined 3.7 V6 delivering 344 hp and 371 Nm
of torque through a 6-speed manual transmission. You can say what you wan't
about the Nissan's quality or sheer performance but this car delivers
serious sports car flair on pair with the German rivals Audi TTRS and
Porsche Cayman S. For half of the price of the Porsche and at least 25k EUR
less than for the Audi you are probably causing more turning heads on the
road than with the rather "mainstream" competitors. Also the grunt and
linear power delivery of that 3.7 V6 is very unique, raw and for real men
that want to work the machine. Conclusion: If you want a sports car for
your daily life, go take one of the Germans, if you want to have the
meanest machine in your neighborhood and want to see high power diesel
drivers scratching their heads after getting smashed on the Autobahn, then
go ahead and take a look at the NISMO:-) Nissan will even refine this model
delivering a facelifted 2015 370Z Nismo! I am looking forward to your

Subaru WRX STI vs Nissan 370Z Nismo (English subtitled)
Japans extremisme bestaat nog altijd! Jammer dat het door de Nederlandse
CO2-straffen zo duur wordt om bruut spul als de Subaru WRX STi en de Nissan
370Z Nismo te kunnen rijden. Wij gaan op pad met deze twee outlaws. De een
een 4x4 rallykanon voor op straat, de ander een nog scherper gemaakte
sportwagen volgens het klassieke recept. Fun!
