The difference between a g35 coupe and a 350z?

I've been on craigslist nonstop since ive been trying to sell my car. And I was only looking at the g35 coupes 6mt. I dont know why i never looked at the 350z, they are like a grand cheaper, lower miles and fricken nice and fast. Im just wondering why would they be cheaper? and are they worse than the g35 coupe? would i be able to drive the 350z in the winter here in michigan? Is this a real daily driver, and will the insurance under my parents name be a hassle, or would it be similar to the g35?

The 350Z & g35 are VERY similar.
Biggest difference is the g35 has rear seats(albeit very small ones-kid size).

Nissan builds both cars. The g35 has a better finished interior,runs quieter in stock form.
This is following Infiniti vehicles positioned as more of a luxury performance brand.
That may be why you are finding the prices are higher with the g35. Look at the Touring
model with the 350Z to compare to the g35.

Technically,the cars are pretty much the same.

As far as winter driving goes,both are not good choices. Many owners do drive their Z &g in the
winter(with a change of tires).

Good luck!

Both the Z33 and G35 Coupe are built in the FM (front midship) platform and have a near 50/50 weight static weight distribution. That makes it a tricky proposition as a DD in the winter (unless you have a separate set of snow tires). Insurance will likely be higher for the 350Z, based on accident history. Both use the VQ35DE, which is a jewel of an engine that has won numerous awards.

The main difference is:
350Z=sports car
G35=sporty car

Not everyone who lost his life in Vietnam died there. Not everyone who came home from Vietnam ever left there.
