I think you'll be surprised here.

Not saying that the 370Z won't outhandle it, just that I think it will be closer than you think.

Something about transmission failures and their refusal to warranty the replacement.
The current 350z is a GREAT handling car, and it weighs ~3350lbs. The 370z is supposed to be 150-200lbs less, and it's got even more tire than the 350z. It WILL outhandle the SS. We're talking about a 600+ lbs difference combined with the fact that the Z is an out-and-out sports car.

The camaro is great. Lets not kid ourselves though, huh?

As an example of the sort of handling prowess GM is turning out these days, I give you this:

The 2008 Cobalt SS coupe, which is not a "sports car" by any means, laps the Nurburgring four seconds faster than the 350Z.

The 350Z has more tire, better weight distribution, and a better power-to-weight ratio, plus the inherent advantage of being RWD.
