Featuring a timeless design and a skillfully upgraded powerplant beneath the hood, this 1991 Nissan 300ZX Turbo is a fine example of just how adept Nissan was at making effective updates to retain their storied nameplate's status as a “go-to” performance car still attainable by the masses. The potent, enhanced engine teams with several other aftermarket components to give the car outstanding performance.
America's infatuation with this Z32 rendition of the ZX really hit a high point during this era - just the year before this '91 debuted, more than a million ZXs cruised out of showrooms, making it the best selling sports car in the country. Clad in sharp Black Pearl paint, this specimen represents the model very nicely. Its exterior remains in fine form, with no blemishes of note and when you bring the car out into the sun, you can see a subtle metallic texture to go along with a deep shine. With the exception of a set of aftermarket wheels, the overall appearance remains convincingly stock, providing no hint as to the enhanced power this car carries. From front to back, the ornamental trim and body cladding is in great shape and the pair of added smoked headlights up front provide a cool touch of customization. The T-top configuration provides the exhilaration of open air motoring, with more shelter as needed just a couple of easy steps away.
The black leather interior is cleaner than you'd expect from a car of this era. Take a look around and you'll be impressed by its condition, starting with the front buckets, which still have plenty of padding intact and offer a combination of comfort and support. Consistent care and plenty of shelter have left the dash area in good shape, with a set of clear gauges inside its instrument cluster and a pad free of any cracks sitting above. The digital boost controller for the twin turbos up front is seamlessly installed just below the dash and is sure to be a focal point for driver and passenger alike. A flip up Kenwood AM/FM/CD player with iPod connectivity stands by to handle your audio demands, teaming with factory Bose speakers in the doors and an 8” JL subwoofer in the rear storage area to provide a great audio experience. There's an impressive array of comfort features inside, including power seats, power windows and door locks, air conditioning that's blowing cold and strong, and cruise control.
The 3.0 liter, electronically fuel injected twin turbo V6 on display beneath the hood was already good for 300 horsepower when it left the factory and having been enhanced with some substantial upgrades, including the installation of a pair of more powerful turbochargers, an improved intercooler and electronic controller, an upgraded aftermarket exhaust and larger fuel injectors, its output goes up substantially from there. The array of top tier add-ons are all dialed in properly - this engine performs every bit as well as you'd expect, given its specifications, and pairs with a smooth shifting 5-speed transmission to make for exciting times behind the wheel. The power steering is smooth but precise and with the ZX's pairing of MacPherson struts in front and an independent ball joint suspension in back, it's a very agile corner carver. Anti-lock power disc brakes at all four corners help keep things under control during abrupt stops and bring the set of 18” TSW wheels to a halt in a hurry. Air bags on both sides provide an added measure of safety.
Looking great both inside and out and offering outstanding power, this 1991 Nissan 300ZX Twin Turbo is a must see. Call today!
