Constant readers may recall I recently traded a 2008 Honda S2000 for a new Volkswagen GTI 6-speed. Both can sprint from 0 to 60 mph in the mid to high 5s, but with the turbo lag on the VW and the pre-VTEC lack of punch on the Honda, the power delivery on both cars is nonlinear, which grows tiresome at times.
I need a break from millennial motors and motorcycle-inspired engines. I want torque and I want it now, damn it.
Enter the 2016 Nissan 370Z.
