I have had this car for 7 years, and it gets more fun to drive every time! No problems, style still current with today's cars! Performance is 2nd to none, and handling is just as good as the coupe. The rarety of the car from '93 - '95 will make it a collector's car in the future. Excellent gas mileage... better than my wife's Honda CR-V! Pearl White with black leather interior and suede on the door panels/center console along with the excellent build quality shines throughout the car, and the V6 engine puts out plenty of ponies to 'get up and go' without the extra weight of power roof motors. Very big trunk for a convertible as well.
There are many, but I think the layout of the cockpit is my favorite. Everything is in easy reach, and all gauges are clearly visible.
A 2+2 in the convertible would have been nice, and bigger rims. A few more horsepower wouldn't hurt either (not that it really needs it, but you can never have enough)
This vehicle is a smooth, powerful
machine. Performance on these 300zx's
are the best of all z's. I've owned an
80's 300zx n/a, and the power to
weight ratio is horrible, making it a
poor performer. Even though Nissan
still made the early 90's Zs heavy,
the horsepower went up significantly
with the twin turbos. Low end and top
end acceleration is awesome, and you
can even pass cars in 5th gear on the
highway, look ma, no downshifting!
Handling is razor sharp, the car moves
to wherever you want it,the car makes
you confident of its handling. The
styling is timeless, looking as good
as new exotic cars of today. This car
has and always be the ultimate 300zx.
My favorite features are the t-tops,
lack of rear seats, and the smooth,
sleek styling of the car. Oh and did I
mention the twin turbos are kind of
nice to have?
Of course, being a sports car, gas
mileage won't be great, and plenty of
other owners have griped. It would be
nice if Nissan could've upped the gas
mileage a little more, but really,
there's nothing to complain about this
car. To call it "awesome" would be an
This 300ZX TT (twin turbo) will go 0-
60 MPH in about 4 seconds. Try that
with your average Honda Civic. This
car is scary-fast, so it is certainly
not for the faint of heart. This car
is NOT for daily driving unless you
are loaded. It may have extreme power
but it gets horrible gas mileage, even
when you are being conservative with
the gas pedal. Really the only thing
this car needs is a free-flow exhaust
and a better intake filtering system.
And don't forget the HICAS... 4-wheel-
steering. it is magical how well this
car handles (on pavement). Overall,
this is not a car, this is a bad ass

Although I have sold my Z a few years
ago, every time I see one of these on
the road, it brings a smile to my face.
The Z was my dream car growing up as a
teenager in the early 90's. It did not
disappoint when I got mine 2x2 in 93.
The styling was aggressive, muscular
and sexy (better than the current 350
Z). The interior was functional and
sophisticated. The seats are
comfortable and the hatch was great for
storage with the back seats down. The
222 HP engine was eager to rev and a
blast to drive. The handling and
breaking are top notch and the deep
exhaust note was great. The T top was
great in the summer. Best of all, this
beauty was reliable.
Unbeatable styling. Great combination
of performance, handling and comfort.
Reliability is top notch for a sports
car. I have never had a problem!! It
was a sad day when I had to trade it in
for a more winter friendly vehicle for
the New England driving.
Weight compromises some performance and
poor winter driving characteristics.
