About Nissan 300ZX

Recognized as one of the sportiest models in the Nissan lineup, the 300ZX was a torch-carrier for the Japanese automaker's performance-based "Z" series of cars that first started rolling off the line under the Datsun name in the early '70s. The Nissan 300ZX took over for the previous Dastun 280ZX in 1983 and upon its arrival, showed off a 3.0L SOHC V6 engine that threw out up to 160 horsepower (turbocharged configurations shot that number up to an even 200 hp) mated to a five-speed manual transmission, although a four-speed automatic was made available as an option. Thanks to pop-up headlights and an angled nose, the first-generation 300ZX (and third overall generation of the ZX) presented a distinctive exterior demeanor (turbocharged models even showcased a hood scoop). Nissan introduced "body sonic" seats for the model, which were offered as an option. These seats vibrated to music played inside the cabin, and were an indicator of the brand's attempt at delivering a performance car that was also on the cutting-edge of automotive technology. Right from the beginning, the 300ZX made a notable impression, selling over 70,000 units in the US for the 1984 model year.

In 1985, removable roof panels were made standard for all versions of the 300ZX (with the exception of the new base model). There weren't many other changes that followed the model into 1985, but in 1986, Nissan got busy. Turbocharged variants were given 16" wheels but no longer sported the hood scoop. However, all versions of the 300ZX received rocker panels. 1987 brought on yet another redesign, which this time involved making the body-shape of the car more rounded with an increase in smooth lines. Horsepower was slightly increased across the board in all engine configurations, as well. In 1989, the first-generation 300ZX was fading away, with Nissan poised to release the all-new version of the model the next year. Upon its debut in 1990, the new 300ZX created quite a stir. Offered as both the 300ZX and the 300ZX Twin Turbo, the model went head-to-head against the Infiniti Q45, Lexus LS, and the Mazda Miata (with the Twin Turbo earning Motor Trend's Import Car of the Year award). The 300ZX boasted improved handling thanks to Nissan's High Capacity Active Suspension system, which worked using rear-steering and depended on the velocity of the car, angles, and etc. Perhaps most importantly, the car was decked out with a 3.0L V6 good for 222 horsepower. But the Twin Turbo model is where the most power rested, as it punched out 300 hp and hit 60 miles-per-hour in a tick over five seconds.

A convertible 300ZX made its way into the lineup for 1992 along with an integrated roll bar. Not many other changes were noticed on Nissan 300ZX parts for the duration of model's time in the lineup. In 1994, front airbags, remote keyless entry, and a taller rear spoiler were the main additions. 1995 welcomed in new fuel-injectors for the Twin Turbo and in 1996, variable cam timing was discontinued, dropping the horsepower rating slightly in all Twin Turbo models. Nissan eventually halted production of the 300ZX and the Z lineup altogether for the next few years, with the company not bringing it back until 2002 under the 370ZX nameplate. Although the 300ZX is no longer assembled, that hasn't quelled its status as a favorite for many performance-enthused motorists across the country. The 300ZX was a steadily-improved model during its time and can still be seen zipping through the landscape.

One of Nissan's most legendary models, the 300ZX has always been a newsmaker on the roads. This ride made its mark for its sporty attitude, punchy performance, and penchant for techno-savvy style. The 300ZX does not hesitate one bit when it come to pounding the pavement, as it can break out ahead of the field in a flash when it has to, which is what keeps its drivers so loyal. A highly respected member of the family, the Nissan 300ZX still makes headlines wherever it is seen. As much as this mdoel is stylish, it's a great platform to start customization, but wuth the use of the best accessories only.

A spoiler is intended to control the way the air streaming over the car is affecting the rear of the vehicle. Spoilers cause drag, and actually slow the car down or make it unstable, if not properly designed. A correctly designed spoiler can counteract the lifting forces that most cars experience when speeds get high, and keep the car on the road.
