At the Detroit Auto Show in 2001, Nissan unveiled the long-awaited Z-car replacement: Concept Z. The stunning coupe was a show favorite, blend- ing modern styling with the iconic nameplate.More importantly, Nissan's CEO, Carlos Ghosn, announced that the car had been green lighted for production. In 2002, after a six-year hiatus from the U.S. market, the fifth-generation Z-car debuted wearing the 350Z badge.

With a sporty rear-drive platform, nearly 300 hp, and a $26,000 base price, the 350Z became an instant success. Underhood is the potent, six-cylinder VQ35DE powerplant. Numerous tuners have since experimented with the VQ and the engine's power threshold has continued to rise.

Due to the popularity of our December issue's Subaru WRX buyer's guide, we return to you this month with a little something for the Z33 owners out there. The following pages include a wide variety of products from today's elite performance manufacturers. From suspension to braking and everything in between, we have exactly what you need to turn your Z into a track-ready fiend.
