1991 Nissan 300ZX Twin Turbo Coupe
The 300ZX twin turbo is hands down one of the most quintessential sports cars to come out of the '90s. The Z32 was on Car and Driver's top 10 list every year it was in production, and that's saying something. There is no doubt about why it belonged on there in the first place. This 1991 has all the right boxes checked to make it a proper sports coupe. With only 82K miles it's clearly been well cared for based on it's overall condition. Also a bit surprising to find these days is a car that's been kept pretty much all stock. There have been a few subtle enhancements, most notably the iconic 18" Work VS KF wheels. The wheels have been well preserved however do have a few spots of inevitable curb rash. Paired with the factory Charcoal Pearl Metallic (KH2) paint you really couldn't come up with a better look. The paint shows great for it's age however does have some routine blemishes from being driven over the years. There are some stone chips and small bits of touchup paint on the bumpers and hood but were all too minor to pick up in the photos. The body has been kept to equally high standards with only some minor door dings. Most notably there are a couple small dings along the driver side rear quarter, no paint was chipped but in the right lighting it can be seen. Unlike most all of the 300ZX's found stateside this particular one is a fixed roof coupe vs. the more common T-Tops. By getting rid of all that glass at the highest point in the car aids to lower the center of gravity, living up to the reputation of one of the best driver's cars.
Unlike many of the Z32's we bring over, this one is the proper 2 seat sports coupe. The grey cloth interior has been kept all original and in excellent shape. The only noticeable change up is a gauge cluster overlay with trim rings. The cluster itself was not swapped, as the 82K miles have been verified as original. It does however add a nice little finishing touch to the cluster. The rest of the dash is in great shape with all of the accessories features functioning as they should. It even still has the original steering wheel with cruise control. Automatic climate control was a standard feature and is blowing nice and cold. Another nice touch was the power driver seat as few cars in Japan even had that as an option. Both seats are free of any notable stains or the ever common bolster wear.
Under the hood is the infamous VG30DETT (3.0 V6 Twin Turbo) that made this car so famous. Paired to a proper 3 pedal, 5 speed makes it an absolute blast to throw around. The only change up comes from a Fujitsubo single exit cat back exhaust which really makes this thing sing. It's surprising how much of a difference a single exit exhaust makes on this opposed to the original dual exit. The tone is deep at idle but avoids the awful highway drone at speed. The factory suspension is very capable when the road gets twisty without beating you to death on your morning commute. The car has been fully serviced and just got 4 fresh tires, a new set of plugs, an oil change, and the timing belt was just done 9K miles ago. For those after a proper sports tourer there's really no better option than the Z32.
