In a move to boost sales of the aging 370Z, Nissan is slashing about $10,000 off the price of the base model to offer an “Enthusiast Edition” of the two-seater sports car.

The Enthusiast Edition will come stripped down but still offer 18-inch rims, bi-xenon headlights, Bluetooth & USB connectivity and automatic climate control. Don’t expect to get a plush leather interior thought at the model will come with cloth seats.

Fresh on the heels of the introduction of the JUKE NISMO comes the significantly reimagined 2016 Nissan 370Z NISMO.

It is offered in just four exterior colors – Solid Red, Magnetic Black, Brilliant Silver and Pearl White.
