What Is The Weight Of A 2003-2009 Nissan 350Z? (Answered)

When you own a 350Z Nissan, there will most likely also be moments where you need to know how much the car weighs. Therefore, in this blog, we’ve compiled a list of all the 2003 – 2009 trim levels and models with their correct weight in pounds and kilograms. However, let’s start with a short answer.

The 2003 – 2005 Nissan 350Z coupe weighs 3,188 – 3,247 pounds, and the roadster weighs 3,428 – 3,462 pounds. The 2006 – 2008 coupe weighs 3,339 – 3,404 pounds, and the roadster (also produced in 2009) weighs 3,580 – 3,602 pounds. Weight levels mainly depend on the trim levels in which the car was sold.

However, this doesn’t tell the full story. In the next subheading, we’ve outlined the base weight of the Nissan 350Z in pounds and kilograms together with some useful notes. This way, you’ll surely find the weight of the Nissan 350Z. Read on!

Base Weight Of The Nissan 350Z Per Model Year And Trim

The table below outlines all the different weights for all the Nissan 350Z’s produced. We’ve also included the weight in pounds and kilograms. Furthermore, it’s good to know that the weight of this particular car mainly depends on two different factors: the trim and the model.

The model is quite simple. The Nissan has been produced in both a coupe and roadster version. Only in 2009 was there only a roadster version available.

Furthermore, there are 8 different trim levels for the coupe and three for the roadster. For the coupe, the trim levels are as follows:

  • Base
  • Enthusiast
  • Performance (only 2003 – 2005)
  • Touring
  • Grand Touring (only 2006 – 2008 models)
  • Track (only 2003 – 2005)
  • NISMO (only 2007 – 2008 models)
  • Anniversary (only 2005 models)

For the roadster, there are only three different trim levels:

  • Enthusiast
  • Touring
  • Grand Touring (only 2006 – 2009 models)

Know that you know that it’s time to look at the weight of the different models!

What Is The Maximum Towing Capacity Of A Nissan 350Z?

There’s a good chance you wanted to know the weight of the 350Z because you want to hook a trailer up to your car. In this case, you need to know the maximum towing capacity of the 350Z. We read through the owner’s manual of the 350Z, and the answer is as follows.

A Nissan 350Z has a maximum towing capacity of 1,000 pounds. This rule applies to all model years and both the coupe and the roadster. Furthermore, the 350Z has a maximum tongue weight of 100 pounds.

How Much Does The Nissan 350Z Weigh Compared To It’s Competitors?

Finally, we feel it’s also a good idea to compare the Nissan 350Z to its competitors in terms of how much they weigh. In the table below, we picked four main competitors. It becomes immediately clear that the minimum curb weight of the Nissan 350Z is quite high. Only the Dodge Challenger has a higher minimum curb weight. Furthermore, the Challenger is a muscle car, and therefore this is expected to be quite heavy.

In that case, it’s interesting to see that the Ford Mustang is lighter than the 350Z. The Nissan 350Z is a sports car, but it seems quite heavy, especially when you compare it to the Audi TT, which can be more than 600 pounds less.

Make/ModelMinimum Curb Weight (lbs)Maximum Curb Weight (lbs)
2009 Nissan 350Z                                  3,580                                   3,602
2009 Ford Mustang                                  3,336                                   3,601
2009 Dodge Challenger                                  3,719                                   4,140
2009 Audi TT                                  2,965                                   3,494
