Nissan 280ZX Guides

Eight Fast Facts about the Nissan 280ZX

  • The Nissan 280ZX was also sold under the name Datsun 280ZX. To prevent brand confusion, it was badged with the "By Nissan" subscript beside its Datsun emblem, therefore making it the first sports coupe line to bear this co-brand distinction.

  • Only 3,000 units of the limited edition Nissan 280ZX were produced in 1980. Of these 3,000 cars, 2,500 were designed to have the black and gold paint job, while the remaining 500 were painted red and black.

  • From 1984 to 1985, the Nissan 280ZX became an icon in American pop culture when it appeared in the Transformers series. Three early members of the Autobots-Bluestreak, Smokescreen, and Prowl-changed into three different models of the 280ZX when needed.

  • In the Trans-Am Series, the Nissan (Datsun) 280ZX was driven by the Bob Sharp Racing team. In fact, actor Paul Newman, who was also famous for his racing stints, drove a 280ZX. He even starred in many commercials to boost the sales of the vehicle line.

  • The Nissan 280ZX was the first vehicle to be tested by Nissan in a wind tunnel. As a result, this vehicle's body had an aerodynamically-based design, and it had an improved weight distribution and lower center of gravity compared to its predecessor.

  • Want to know the reason why some car enthusiasts think that the 280ZX had less powerful engine than the 1970 240Z? This was because when the L28 engine of the 280ZX was measured by Nissan, the company used the SAE net standard of power measurement which used lower power ratings than the previously used standard of power measurement.

  • In 1979, Datsun manufactured 1,000 limited edition units of the 280ZX-R. Some of the notable differences between this model and the base 280ZX was that the 280ZX-R was equipped with a high-downforce whale-tail spoiler and various body decals. It also boasted broad blue stripes that were set in Silver Mist paint and special badging.

  • The famous removable-panel T-top of the 280ZX was introduced in 1980. This feature was designed for those who want a convertible-like vehicle without the risk of rollovers. Because of this design's commercial success, half of all the manufactured ZXs were equipped with it by the end of the year.

FAQs—Nissan 280ZX

I've had my Nissan 280ZX with me for more than 10 years. I'm the type of person who holds on to sentimental memories, so I just could not forgo it. But then this week, it started giving me trouble with starting. This usually happens first thing in the morning or even as I go for a quick drive to the nearby convenience store. It takes about 10 to 15 minutes of trying. Should I consider getting a new battery then?

There could be a number of reasons your car may be acting up. It could be due to a dead battery. The indication for which is a cranking sound but then it does not actually start up. A discharged battery loses its electrical power, which then hampers its ability to distribute such to the engine. Also, if your car cranks over but still fails to start, the problem could be the fuel supply that fails to get to the engine, defective spark plugs, or a bad ignition coil. Other parts that are likely malfunctioning could be the battery terminal connections, a bad starter motor, or a faulty fuel pump. You would have to get a professional mechanic to be able to evaluate the actual problem and provide you with fast resolution.

My Nissan 280ZX has been jerking when I speed up. It's been quite a while since I've been experiencing this. The jerking usually happens when I hit above 50 miles an hour. Could it be the spark plugs?

A jerking movement, especially during an accelerated speed, is one of the indicators that you need to have your car checked out. It could be because of bad spark plugs, but the problem could also be something worse like a defective fuel pump. If the relief valves in the fuel pump fail to open, then chances are more fuel than what is needed would go directly into the engine system, thereby "choking" the engine. Also, as the car picks up speed, the heat rises and causes the fuel pump to work double time. So, when your car suddenly stops moving, as if a switch has been turned off, then it could probably mean the fuel pump motor is already faulty. As such, you would need to have it replaced immediately.

I've been wondering why my headlights are dim, even as I shift to high beam. I nearly got into a road mishap while driving on a faintly lit area. What must be wrong?

The first question to ask yourself would be how long have you had your car and how many times have you replaced your headlight bulbs. If you would have to walk down memory lane to be able to answer these questions, then most probably your headlight bulbs had simply given in to old age. Headlights typically don't blow out but rather dim as time goes by, and replacing the bad bulbs with new ones could easily solve the problem. However, if after changing the bulbs, the same problem bugs you, then you would have to let a professional mechanic test if adequate voltage is delivered to activate the headlights or not. Also, bulb terminals should be inspected for corrosion, the lens should be checked for leaks and dust, and the wirings must be scrutinized to ensure they are not loose or broken.

Nissan 280ZX: Top-Selling Second Generation Z Car

Back in the 1960s, Nissan was merely a small Japanese automaker that was yet to make a big impact on the international market when it worked with Yamaha for the design of a prototype for a new sports car, an updated Nissan Fairlady. The finished design was a great opportunity to create a halo car that would improve the company’s image. The project, however, was eventually dropped. Fortunately, Nissan USA president Yutaka Katayama thought of creating a cheaper sports car for the international market. The plan was to create a new series of GT cars that would be stylish, fast, and innovative but would come at a much lower price by using interchangeable parts. This project led to the 240Z rolling out of the assembly line, sold in 1969 not only in Japan but also in the US. The second generation Z car, the S130 series, introduced the Nissan 280ZX along with other models. It became successful in different classes of racing, especially in the US.

1978: Introducing the 280ZX

The Nissan 280Z was introduced in North America in 1975 under the first generation S30 Z car lineup. A remarkable change to the Z car would have to be the Bosch fuel injection system used instead of SU carburetors. Engine displacement was also increased to 2.8L. These changes brought about the power hike of up to 170 hp, even though the Z vehicle had added weight from luxury features and a bigger bumper.

When the second generation S130 came out, the 280ZX was unveiled in 1978. It had the same 5-speed manual transmission from the 280Z and the 2.8L L28 inline-6 engine. Other than that, it emerged as a new and improved Z car built with more luxurious features. Some of the bigger changes found in the third generation Z car were the t-tops in 1980 and the addition of a turbocharged model in 1981. The turbo option was mated to a 3-speed automatic or 5-speed manual transmission and could generate as much as 180 bhp and 203 lb.-ft. of torque. This model brought performance to a whole new level.

The Nissan 280ZX enjoyed much success. In its first year, it already hit a record high of around 86,007 units sold. It was also named Import Car of the Year by Motor Trend in 1979. The 280ZX was also successful in the racing circuit, with several victories earned in the 1979 SCCA C Production Category, 1979 and 1980 IMSA GTU Championship, and 1982 and 1983 IMSA GTO Championship.

The redesign increased the performance and comfort levels of this second generation Z car. It had focused more on providing luxuries to satisfy consumer demands. However, some had noted that the design’s focus on luxury took some of the driving fun. The280ZX was eventually replaced by the 300ZX, which was known for its improved handling, better acceleration, and other refinements.
