A rear wheel drive car made by datsun from 1979 to 1983. An awesome car, many critizise it because it A: looked different than the earlier 240/260/280z, and B: was a heavy sport tourer instead of a plain out sports car, however the turbo version could out perform the 240z. The 280zx was a 2 door 2 seater but a 2+2 option was available as well. It had a strait 6 2.8 liter engine in it that in the turbo version made 180 HP and 203 ft.lb of tourque that brought 0-60 to 6.8 seconds. pretty fast for the 1980s.
a 280zx isnt a ricer.
