It's called "The Fastest Road in the West" for a reason. Willow Springs International Raceway is known for its staggeringly high lap speeds, and it defines itself with one of the gnarliest, high-speed corner combinations anywhere in the world: a long decreasing-radius bend from Turn 8 to Turn 9. And so in an effort to preserve the world's population of auto scribes like us, Nissan has created a makeshift chicane to successfully emasculate these corners during our test of the 2009 Nissan Nismo 370Z. Smart move.

My main question is this:
When is Nissan going to get off their laurels and give us a ZX? No more of this half done Nismo junk, we need a real, honest sport model to really blow away the GT's, SS's, and SRT's.

Hey! Where is the picture of the car after the writer "destroyed" it? I could always use a laugh, especially at the expense of the questionable driving skills of a supposed automotive journalist.

Agreed... It would be nice to see that even the guys with the best jobs in the world (IMO) can have a bad day at the office.

Actually it already out performs those cars. You should look up the specs.
