Nissan's all-new 370Z coupe has been spotted rolling around the wet roads of Germany and Brenda Priddy's spy photogs got a great look at it. Priddy notes that the 370 will take some styling cues from the recently debuted Maxima, with the headlights and taillights bearing a strong family resemblance.

More importantly, performance will receive a 30hp boost as the 3.7L 330hp V6 in Infiniti's G37 finds its way under the hood of the next-generation Z. It's also rumored that the curb weight will be lower than the outgoing 350Z. If the 370 is anything like its predecessor, it will be an enthusiast favorite. A SEMA survey shows that more than half of 350Z owners bought wheels and tires (55% and 53%, respectively) for their Nissans. Intake and aero kits are also popular (55%, 45%), as are performance brake kits and exhaust packages (39% each).

Watch for this two-seater to debut during the upcoming auto show season.
