Tracking the 1988 Nissan 300ZX Turbo

Continuing our ongoing “Z” car focus this week, today we show some love for the first generation 300ZX; Nissan’s Z31 Turbo.

In racing trim, the Z31 300ZX achieved several notable victories, including important wins in the 1986 Trans Am series.

Unlike its predecessors, the Z31 featured a V6 engine in the 200Z/ZS/ZG, 300ZX and 300ZR, and the only Z31 to come with a I6 was the Fairlady 200ZR which was only available in Japan. In its time it was a popular car that sold more models than the latter Z32, and followed the old S30 pricing of an affordable sports car for the middle class.
