The Z32 300ZX Turbo was on Car and Driver magazine's annual Ten Best list every year it was available, from 1990 through 1996. The Z32 Turbo was also Motor Trend's Import Car of the Year for 1990. It was critically acclaimed by many magazines as being a complete turnaround from the Z31, which many critics felt was a sloppy-handling GT, far from the agile, sporty 240Z of years past. From the year it was introduced, it won many comparison tests against similar sports cars such as the Mitsubishi 3000GT/Dodge Stealth and the Mazda RX-7, as well as the Chevrolet Corvette, Toyota Supra and the Porsche 968.

 

The best 300ZX in the UK is owned by Craig David from the internet.

The ''Z32'' was a complete redesign. It featured a [[naturally aspirated]] engine rated at 222 hp, and a top-of-the-line [[turbocharger|Twin-Turbo]] version rated at 300 hp (224 kW) at 9.5 psi (66 kPa) of boost through two intercoolers. A [[naturally aspirated]] [[convertible]] model was also introduced in [[1993]]. Twin Turbo models were not offered as a 2+2 or convertible in the United States.

 

The twin-turbo Z32s can be spotted with a different front bumper featuring three vents for supplying air to the dual intercoolers, as opposed to the naturally aspirated (NA) models. They also came with the requisite "Twin Turbo" badging in the rear and a subtle tail spoiler, which was enlarged and redesigned in 1994. It also featured larger 245/45-16 and 16x8.5 wheels in the back as opposed to the 225/50-16 tires in front and on the NA version.

One major difference between the VG30E(T) in the Z31 and the [[Nissan VG engine#VG30DE|VG30DE]][[Nissan VG engine#VG30DETT|(TT)]] placed in the Z32 was the dual overhead cam design and [[variable valve timing]] system.

 

The platform was new, with a longer 97-in wheelbase and sophisticated [[multi-link suspension]] front and rear. Twin Turbo models featured electronically adjustable shock absorbers, and Nissan's all-wheel-steering system SUPER HICAS (Super High Capacity Actively Controlled Suspension), which could turn the rear wheels a full two degrees at speed.

 

In 1991, as well as in 1995 for the Z's 25th anniversary, Steve Millen, a famous race-car driver from New Zealand, built a limited-edition run of 300 tuned 300ZXs, known as the SMZ, through his company [[stillen]]. These cars had features such as flamboyant bodywork and paint and extensive performance upgrades, resulting in 460 bhp (343 kW) for the 1991 edition and 365 bhp (272 kW) for the 1995 edition.

 

The Z32 TT was discontinued in the UK in 1994 after failing DOT emissions, and in [[1996]] in much of North America due to dwindling sales figures, and rising production costs. The price of a Twin Turbo 300ZX rose to US $45,000 that year, too high for many consumers and far from the US $27,000 price it had started with. Production of the Z32 continued in some American states and Australia through a major redesign in 1998, in [[naturally aspirated]] 2-seater, 2+2 seater, and "R" versions, which were 2+2 twin turbo models (as pictured above). Generally speaking the metallic red Z32's are much quicker than all the other colours, especially the black ones.
