Nissan has revealed that it will stop selling the 370Z Roadster in Canada after the 2020 model year.
Nissan's sole convertible model will survive a year longer here than in the US, where Nissan will discontinue the car after 2019.
News of the Z Roadster's demise comes less than two weeks after Nissan announced a 50th Anniversary Edition of the 370Z coupe to celebrate the original 240Z's arrival as a 1969 model.
For its last year on the market, the 370Z Roadster is carried over unchanged with a 3.7L V6 that makes 332 hp and comes with either a six-speed manual or seven-speed automatic transmission. A limited slip differential is standard, and stronger brakes come in the uplevel Sport Touring trim.
The Z convertible's demise spells the end of one of the market's most affordable performance-oriented convertibles, at $50,498 for the 2020 model. The 370Z's closest rivals, performance-wise, include the Porsche 718 Boxster and Mercedes-Benz SLC, both of which sell for more than $60,000 in their respective base forms.
