The Z two-seater shares mechanical components with the Infiniti G coupe, including a wonderfully strong and smooth V6. Acceleration is very quick, and fuel economy is respectable. The six-speed manual is a bit notchy but easy to use. It can match revs on downshifts, a neat touch. Handling is very agile, with direct steering and lots of grip. But the ride is very stiff and choppy, and road and tire noise are constant. The Z's well-finished interior is cramped, and visibility is lousy. A convertible is also available. Reliability has been well below average.
