The new class of Japanese classic cars is starting to get red hot, and there is none more desirable than this 1990 Nissan 300ZX Turbo. Plus, this example has been preserved in all the right places, and there have also been the right recent investments to make sure this lives up to the quality standard you expect. So it's all about nothing getting in the way of you enjoying T-top twin-turbo motoring at its finest.
1990 is the first year for this new body style, and it took the other carmakers a whole decade to catch up to this one. It looks like a shark on land with the flush-mounted headlights, sleek sheet metal, and finned lower valance on the special turbo body kit. So it just seems appropriate to finish the sharky style in Nissan's Silver Metallic. It's the factory application and it continues to have a well-presented look that comes from a respected coupe that has averaged under 2,300 miles annually. The whole car is a testament to Japanese build quality, right down to details like the spoiler, plastics, quad exhaust tips, and the way the panels continue to fit so well. But this is also a car that's made to be enjoyed, and so there are well-placed upgrades like the 18-inch Enkei wheels.
The interior is the right mixture of well-preserved components and nice investments to keep this one a fun driver. It all starts with those terrific-looking bucket seats done in supple leather. These were engineered to keep you planted during spirited driving while also being all-day comfortable. The dash is low, giving excellent sight lines. All the controls are at your fingertips, with many as close as the edge of the instrument panel. As Nissan's flagship, this Z came loaded with features like power windows, power locks, power driver's seat, power mirrors, cruise control, and now an upgraded AM/FM/CD stereo with USB and Bluetooth. And because you know you want to take off the T-tops and cruise this Z all-year-round, you'll be glad to know that the automatic climate control includes modern R134a air conditioning.
You might be driving a modern classic, but you'll be just as proud to lift the hood at car shows as those muscle car guys are. After all, this 3.0-liter V6 has the dual turbo housings that are exactly what modern horsepower dreams are made of. And the presentation looks amazing with the added strut tower brace. And that is your first clue at the added investment in this Z-car. We have the records that show a well-known performance specialist shop performed the 120k-mile service at 71,831 miles. This included plugs, timing belt, idler pulley, and belts. This was over $9k in investments that took place in May 2021. It also included new valve cover gaskets, fuel lines, and brake booster hoses. Even the five-speed manual transmission and clutch were replaced. So you can really understand how this car is a terrific mix of respected classic and road-ready sports car. So this motor fires right up with Japanese precision, and it makes a terrific sound out of the dual exhaust. And don't forget to look at the undercarriage photos, because not only do they reveal how all-around clean this car is, but you might also want to take note of the rear suspension. Yes, a modern classic means cool features like four-wheel steering. It helps make this turbo car not only exceptionally quick, but one of the nimblest machines you'll know. Add in power steering, ABS, and four-wheel disc brakes, and this Z might be classic by its age, but it has all the right modern moves.
The sale comes complete with the owner's manual and maintenance records. This stellar turbo Z gives you a rare opportunity to start at the top of the new class of Japanese classics. Don't miss out, call today!
