Nissan 300ZX History

The first generation Z31 (1983-89) replaced the Nissan 280ZX and was the first time the 300ZX name was used. The 300 part was to indicate the V6 3.0L engine and the ZX naming system was first used on the previous 280ZX. This generation was the most successful of the two generations, selling over 100,000 of these cars. This vehicle was built upon the same chassis as the previous 280ZX. In 1986 this car had a slight makeover, mainly affecting the exterior of the car. The second generation Z32 (1989-2000) was extremely popular and had a redesign, with the only thing remaining the same was the 3.0L engine. The new turbo version was to prove to be very popular. Nissans Z-range was extremely popular and in 1990 had sold its One Millionth car, making it the most popular sports car ever. The 300ZX ceased production in 2000 and was replaced with the Nissan 350Z.
