For almost 15 years, Nissan's 300ZX (or 300Z or Fairlady Z) was a tuner's dream. The Z31 chassis was sold from 1984 to 1989, and came with a 3.0L SOHC V6 engine putting out 160-165hp naturally aspirated or 200-205hp with a turbocharger. Transferring that power to the rear wheels would push the 3,000-lb. sports car from 0-60 in about 7 seconds. Not too bad, but it was screaming for some improvements. The Z32 chassis showed up in 1990, and almost none of the previous Nissan 300ZX parts were carried over. It featured all new body panels which reduced drag, suspension and steering components that improved handling, and the engine was given a DOHC setup which significantly increased power generation over the single cam version. Naturally aspirated engines made 222hp, while the new twin-turbo engines were putting out 300hp (and included rear wheel steering). The 0-60 times were now just over 5 seconds. This made the 300ZX Twin Turbo one of the fastest and best-handling production cars available for a reasonable price. Unfortunately, the price didn't stay reasonable for long when the US dollar lost value to the Yen and it became too expensive to import. The model was dropped in 1996.
