Has anyone here owned both of these cars or driven both that can comment about them, I have owned the 300zx but it was the NA version. The 350z exterior and interior styling seems less pleasing than the 300zx but being much newer might be the better car.

300 Zs were classics, but a 30 year old car is going to give you headaches.

its successor the 350z is not in the same league as the 300 was, but its still a more than decent 'sporty' car.

If I were buying used examples, I would get the Infinti version of the 350 (used to be called the G class coupe, but now I think its the Q something or other), it actually has a back seat that can come in handy every once in a while.

Having recently sold my 350Z, I would have preferred to have a well-maintained 300Z Twin Turbo. They seem evenly matched in the power/handling but the 300 has better looking "lines".

The '03-08 Nissan 350Z had performance that make it a legitimate sportscar. Handing and braking were on par with more expensive European sportscars like the Porsche Boxster and BMW Z3. Together with normally aspirated HP ratings of 287-306 HP from the award-winning VQ engine, they meet or exceed the turbo VG engines in the 300ZX. The issue may be to find a well-maintained 350Z that hasn't been hacked up or abused.

Yes we have the G35 here as a JDM import ( grey) called a Nissan Skyline V35 350gt and they are well priced.
