Although the Nissan GT-R is considered the holy grail among tuners, its $100,000 price tag puts it out of reach of most 20-year-olds who must then make do with the 370Z. Offered in coupe and convertible, the 370Z is an ideal platform for tuning because it's remarkably sporty right out of the box.

"Of all the tuner cars out there, none are more loyal to their heritage than the Z car," Gonzalez says.
From the Fairlady Z introduced in this country as the 240Z in 1970 to the current 370Z, Nissan hasn't changed the Z's performance formula, he says.

"With all the upgrade kits available for it, the toughest thing is to decide where to start modifying," Gonzalez says.

Go comes from a 332-horsepower, 3.7-liter V-6 mated to either a six-speed manual or a seven-speed driver-shiftable automatic transmission turning the rear wheels.
