Featuring a sharp, timeless design and turbocharged power under the hood, this 1995 Nissan 300ZX Turbo is a great example at 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. It sports a clean AutoCheck report, as well as a collection of maintenance records, to serve as proof it's avoided any collisions of note and has received attentive care over the years.
Second generation 300ZX's like this '95 hold a special place in Nissan's design heritage, as stylistically they represent an obvious bridge between the first pivotal group of Zs that wowed audiences decades before, and the more modern ZXs we see on the road today. Low to the ground and carrying a relatively wide track, it's a very agile-looking ride - an impression that readily bears out in practice, as just a couple of years before it came out, the 300ZX laid waste to some well-respected foes on the slalom course when Motor Trend put it through its paces. Its Arctic White Pearl paint will pass close scrutiny with flying colors - it's free of any serious blemishes and sports an impressive shine. Step to the front and you'll see a pair of headlights staring back at you through clear lenses, and swing around to the back and you'll find a taillight panel that's still a nice, deep black. As a decided bonus, the 300ZX is one of those fortunate models that cuts an impressive appearance whether its T-top panels are in place or stowed in the trunk for an open-air driving experience.
The black vinyl interior sitting beyond the doors is in impressive condition by any measure. Take a nice deep breath while inside and you're even likely to catch some new car smell. The bucket seats at its center have a distinctive, almost futuristic, ergonomic design and show only minor wear on their surfaces - a rare, but welcome sight in a car more than 20 years old. Good care and plenty of shelter have left the dash area in good shape, with a set of very clear gauges sitting inside its instrument cluster and a pad free of any cracks sitting above. One of those gauges - the turbo timer monitoring the cool down period for this ZX's specially aspirated powerplant - is sure to be a focal point for driver and passenger alike. A Pioneer AM/FM/CD player stands by to handle your audio demands, and it's well up to that challenge, as there's some serious sonic firepower on board here. A pair of Orion 300-watt amps sits behind the seats to power the array of speakers inside, which includes a beefy Logic sub-woofer in the back storage compartment. There's a nice array of comfort features inside, as well, including power seats, power windows, air conditioning that's blowing cold and strong, and cruise control.
From the time the second generation of ZXs were introduced, they enjoyed a marked power advantage over their previous models, and this '95 - with its 3.0 V6 sporting variable-boost twin-turbos - propels it forward with plenty of enthusiasm. The engine fires up promptly and mates with a 5-speed manual transmission that shifts with impressive smoothness. The stopping power is there in abundance, as well - power disc brakes sit at all four corners. With its low stance combining with speed sensitive, power four-wheel steering, it's also got serious corner carving skills as it heats up the asphalt on its 17” Ultra Platinum wheels (originals still available) wrapped with Continental Control Contact tires. A look below will reveal a very clean and straight looking undercarriage.
With its great looking exterior and powerful drivetrain both in very good form, this 1995 Nissan 300ZX Turbo is a must see. Call today!
