Nissan's updated-for-2013 370Z coupe and Roadster models will hit Australia in December, the carmaker's local arm has confirmed.
Unveiled in Chicago earlier this year, the revised 370Z range made its European-market debut at this week's Paris Motor Show.
Updates for 2013 include a handful of subtle styling tweaks, but the popular sports car's mechanicals remain unchanged for the new model year.
Styling tweaks see the conversation-starting 'fangs' deleted from the front bumper, and new LED daytime lights now flank the front air dam.
The rear bumper is unchanged, as far as the Australian buyer will notice - with the US market now getting the the red centre reflector already standard in other markets.
The entry-level package picks up new 18-inch wheels for the US market, although Australia has offered the 19-inch Rays rims as standard equipment for sometime now.
Inside, the satin silver look of the fuel guage has been replaced with a new dark finish.
Mechanically, the 370Z hangs onto its 3.7 litre V6 engine, delivering a plenty-enjoyable 245kW and 363Nm of torque.
Speaking with TMR today, Nissan Australia's Peter Fadeyev confirmed that the updated Z will make its local debut in December.
Can we expect to see the 2013 Z at this month's Australian International Motor Show? Fadeyev wouldn't say, but he promises the carmaker's stand "will be worth visiting".
