Z32 5-Speed: 1991 Nissan 300ZX Twin Turbo

The 300ZX was a 2 door sports car from Nissan during the great Japanese sports car boom of the 1990s and featured a host of technology in a Isao Sono & Toshio Yamashita designed body.  In recent years the 300ZX's competitors (Supra, NSX, 993 etc) have gone through their depreciation curves and the good original ones are commanding prices well above original MSRP, but for some reason the 300ZX (and Mitsu's 3000GT/Dodge Stealth) have cheap for years...but I think that might be changing as cars from the 90s become classics...which is strange and makes me feel old. Find this 1991 Nissan 300ZX Twin Turbo offered for $15,000 in Reno, NV via craigslist. Tip from Jeff.

Open disclosure, the car was in an accident before I got it with an impact on the passenger side front and rear quarter panel. I took the car, removed the engine and had a body shop complete the repairs. Title is clean. I freshened up the engine, reinstalled it and then had the car painted. The car was most recently down at Specialty Z in Chatsworth CA (, where it was looked over and dyno tuned for 91 octane. The car made 326 HP at 13 psi. I requested a conservative tune as I was driving to work on nice days at the time.

As for the bad, there are a few paint chips since the paint job and the AC is un-charged. AC was cold when I got the car but was discharged to repair the core support.

  1. These cars have really aged well. If you're looking for a car to flip on that other car auction site for ridiculous money, this could be a pretty good bet.

  2. I have always loved these cars and miss my '91 TT. Lines still look great after all these years. Props to the owner for the later model 350Z wheels that look particularly good on it, IMO.

  3. Not sure this is worth that money yet would like to know more on crash damage.
