It's the battle we've all been waiting for. Japanese video series Best Motoring recently got its hands on a brand-spanking-new Z34 Nissan 370Z and lined it up against its main rival the Porsche Cayman S, the similarly-powered BMW 135i, a Honda S2000 and - just for giggles - a Porsche 911 Carrera.
It's a proper performance test too, and it takes place on Japan's revered Tsukuba circuit. Being a short and tight track the focus is on handling rather than outright power, but it's clear that the 370Z has more than enough oomph to hang with the Germans.
We won't spoil the video's ending - hit the jump to see it for yourselves - but we will say that the result may surprise a few of you. Check it out.
