Own a $45K Sports Car for $10K

by Mike from Washington, DC on Wed Jan 21 2009

I am on my second 300zx. My first was a 1996 300zx non-turbo. I now own a 1993 300zx Twin Turbo. These cars are great, you get performance, speed and handling at a great price, plus T-tops. Sunroofs and soft top convertibles have got nothing on T-tops. Mine is a daily driver and has 35,000 miles and it is beautiful. Only take these cars to a Z mechanic. A couple modifications such as intake, exhaust and a JWT ECU and you have 400hp. Be careful however, even on dry roads I spun out alot the first few weeks I owned the car. But now 8 months later this never happens as I am use to controlling the power. When the twin turbos kick in at around 3,000 rpms, whoosh you are gone, bye bye Corvette. A few problems that occured in the 1990-1993 models such as injector failure should now be fixed. Also check the rear mail seal of oil leaks. Its only a $15 part, but the transmission has to be dropped to fix it. Watch out for blue or white smoke, which means something is wrong with the turbo seals or your engine heads. There is a button to change the suspension from touring to sport. How cool! All leather steering wheel, seats, shifer and boot, ebrake. Not like all the plastic fake leather on these new cars nowadays. If I could pickup another 300zx I definitely would. This car and the Toyota Supra were the best 90's sport production cars ever made. Any sports car enthusiast should own one. i highly recommend this car.

Fun - Fun - Fun!!!

by Happy Owner from Tennessee on Tue Oct 09 2007

I've had a 300TT since June of 2005. I bought it from the original owner with 142,000 miles. Repairs have been about what I expected and cost about what I expect to pay for a sports car. I have never owned a perfomance car before this one. I imagine that there are many cars out there faster, but I am totally impressed with the cars handling. Riding in the mountain roads in this area (TN) are always exilerating. The car never seems to be working hard while always impressing upon me it's ability to thrill. Beware of this vehicles abilities! If you ever get a chance to own one (or just drive one) always take the opportunity. Enjoy!

Our Take on the 1993 Nissan 300ZX

Beauty and the beast.

That's not the kids' movie, but the typical fare for an auto writer. You get a lot of beauties to drive, but a fair share of beasts as well. Sometimes you drive a vehicle that's a beauty and a beast, which is what we found in a test of the 1993 Nissan 300ZX convertible.

Beauty is in the styling. The 300ZX body is slung low and squatty while thestance is wide-the formula for performance. The beauty, too, comes from a suspension system that seems to respond to any bend or twist in the road as ifit were locked on radar control. Lateral movement is exceptional.

And the 24-valve, 222-horsepower, 3-liter, V-6 is a real beauty. Though ourtest car came with optional automatic rather... Read More
