I definitely see the cubist angle you're talking about. I kinda like it though.
I don't think it looks like a Porsche. Although I have seen people screw up their 2xx Z's by trying to make them into wannabe porsches (poor Zs ). They've always had a slight
When you look at a sideshot of the 350z, squint your eyes a little and you can definitely see the 240 in it. I like that. :cool:
One thing I love about the 350 is that they designed it fresh, from the ground up. All of its chassis, instrumentation, tranny, etc is original to this car. The engine is a derivative of the v-6 used in the altima, but not that close. Not like one of those new Ford T-Birds that is a Lincoln with a different body. The new t-bird even has the same dash as a Lincoln. Pathetic.
Although sharing parts across platforms is a common practice with automakers...
Still, you won't find another car with an instrument cluster like the 350s. I like that. <img src="graemlins/smokin.gif" border="0" alt="[Chilling]" />
