1990 Nissan 300ZX 2+2, 5spd, One Owner, 8,377 Orig Miles overview

The power is provided by a version of Nissan's fine 60-degree 3.0-liter V-6, but it's beenso thoroughly reworked that you wouldn't recognize it. The new engine sports twin cams, 24 valves,pent roof combustion chambers with centrally located spark plugs, electronic fuel injection, newintake and exhaust manifolds, and a variable intake-valve-timing system for improved performancethroughout the rev band. Horsepower is up to 222 at 6400 rpm more than in last year's Turbo-andtorque is increased to 198 pound-feet at 4800 rpm.
The power flows to the rear wheels via a short-throw five-speed manual transmission(a four-speed automatic is available as an option) and a viscous limited- d slip differential.Does it ever flow. The 300ZX storms from 0 to 60 mph in 6.7 f seconds and rips through thequarter- to mile in 15.0 seconds at 93 mph. It e doesn't feel that quick: the engine alwayssounds smooth and unstrained, even when tearing up to its 7000-rpm redline. And the big,solid body (the Z weighs s 3341 pounds) insulates the cabin from ti the furor. In fifth,the engine winds to 6100 rpm-good for 143 mph. That e means that only a handful of dedicatedcompetitors can outgun the new 300ZX. (Fewer still will measure up to the 300-hp twin-turboedition when it arrives.)
A new suspension puts that performance to good use. Each front corner sports unequal-lengthcontrol arms and an additional articulating hub. At the back is a four-element multi-link designbased on the rear-suspension layout found in Nissan's 240SX. Coil springs are used all around,and an anti-roll bar is fitted to each end.
Thanks to clever tuning, this suspension combines stability, control, and a reasonably compliant ride.Shod with 225/5OVR- 16 Michelin Sport XGTV tires mounted on attractive alloy wheels, the Z turned inan outstanding 0.86-g skidpad performance. As you reach the limit the front tires slide first, but therear end can be coaxed out with a sudden move on or off the throttle, making the Z easy to balancethrough turns. The fat Michelins offer progressive, predictable handling characteristics, but onsome surfaces they howl out enough road noise to scare a Peterbilt pilot.
Beefy four-wheel vented disc brakes with four-piston front calipers and standard ABS-stop the Zfrom 70 mph in 171 feet. We observed no signs of fade during repeated hard trials. The test track numbers tell you plenty about the new 300ZX, but they don't tell you nearly enough.Good as it looks to a stopwatch, the 300ZX is even more impressive from behind the wheel.No spec page figures, for instance, could describe the smooth, satisfying feel of the Z'snew variable assist electronic power-steering system. Nor could a bar graph express the sheerpleasure of running the stubby five-speed shifter up through the gears. Nor do we know of anydata sheet that is able to convey the stirring sound of the 300ZX's 24-valve V-6 in full-throttlecrescendo.
And so we arrive at the bottom line. The new 300ZX is not an entry-level GT. The base two-seaterwears a $27,300 sticker, and ourfully optioned test car carried a $30,160 price tag. But consider the returns on that investment:
1. We can think of no other car that offers more style and sculptured, buttoned-down beauty for themoney. The established automotive objects d'art-the Italian exotics-start at twice the price.
2. The 300ZX offers standard amenities galore, decent luggage space, superb eats, and a cabin withan appeal quotient hat is second to none.
3. Even the normally aspirated Z has enough brawn and handling prowess to told most of the competitionat bay.
Granted, the 300ZX's profile reads "performance GT" not "bare-bones sports car," but only the mostdedicated sportsters will be able to defeat it in a straight fight.
4. Our 300ZX test car emitted nary a squeak or rattle during its extended stay with us. And pastexperience with other Nissans has convinced us that this car will stay tight and trouble-free forthe long haul.
Or look at it this way: $30,160 is an awfully small price to pay for a phoenix missile you guideyourself. This one owner garage kept 300 zx California car is a stunning example and with only 8,377 original miles, this caris as close to new as you'regoing to find. There are a few minusculeimperfections chips/nicks which are barely even noticeable. The car runs and drives like a dream and still has that lovely new car aroma......
The car has been stored inside a garage with a custom fitted car cover on it since day one and has always been started/driven around the block every so often to keep all the fluids flowing. This could arguably be one of the nicest 1990 Z's availableanywhere in the world and there is nothing better than a garage kept California car. We suggest buying a car like this over a new Z any day (much classier look without all the technology-computers to fail and t-tops which the new ones don't have). The new owner will be over the top pleased.
