On standard trim, the 300zx (twin turbo, 0-60 in 5.7 seconds), is slower than the supra twin turbo (0-60 in 5.2 seconds), which in turn is slower than the skyline twin turbo (0-60 in 4.8 seconds)
I own a USDM 1995 Nissan 300ZX. I am only 17 so to all you guys that don't have it, you should try to get one, because it is really a great and fun car. Ha ha, suckers.
Thanks Raziel for that meaningless piece of information. Considering those cars cost much much more.
I have a 96 300zx 2+2 with 98,000 one owner miles. What a great looking car! It doesn't have the horsepower it needs so I don't try to outrun anyone, but it handles great. I get about 325 miles on a tank of premium gas. I had the clutch replaced at 95,000 miles, but the stick transmission has problems going into reverse unless you work with it.
The motor is smooth and everything functions. I'm 6'3" and it is a pain getting in and out, but it is worth it! I plan on keeping it for a long time.
You have out run Supra's? I could wind the boost on my Supra down to nothing and still beat your 300ZX. Don't get me wrong, they are fast cars, but stepping into supra and GTR territory, you have to be sure what you're talking about.
By the way, I don't see much 300ZX's running 800hp on stock internals??, GTR's and Supra's are the kings of the highways (Talking about Japanese cars only, of course there are Dodge Vipers, Corvettes and other American cars) But if you're comparing a 300ZX to Supras and GTRs, your car would need some serious tuning, and even if you did, the 300ZX will never gain a reputation like the Supra's and GTR's.
Hey, actually a Supra and a 300zx stock for stock are very well matched. It all comes down to driver. A lot of tests have the 300zx besting the Supra. Don't get me wrong though. The 2jz engine is just straight beast, but it can't handle 800hp on the stock internals dude. LMAO.. The stock BLOCK can hold 800hp. THE INTERNALS NEED INTENSE UPGRADES.
Love both cars, I own a 300zx, I have driven almost every Japanese turbo import except a Supra. All are great cars.
