I've heard that the roof pillars in the rear create huge blindspots. Other than that I think they're fun as hell to drive.

I had a 1993 300ZX Twin-turbo. I put about 35,000 miles on it
& didn't have to take it to the dealer for any problems.
It is a very solid car for a T-top. Very refined for that type of car.
Buying a used one though is another issue. A lot can go wrong.
The twin-turbo set-up with dual TB's are the potential
source of double trouble........not to mention the
computer controlled rear wheel steering.

Yeah I always wondered how that rear wheel steering was... It angles them slightly at high speed right?

Below about 35 MPH the rear wheel steering is not active. The
rear wheel steering controller gets inputs from the vehicle speed
& the front wheel steering angle & calculates how much to
turn the rear wheels. The rear wheels always turn in the same
direction as the front wheels.
There is a large hydraulic cylinder under the rear &
part of the control system is behind the
passenger seat under the carpet.

They turn in the same direction? So you can crab-walk it or they turn in opposite directions to give you a tighter corner?

Had a 92 twin turbo,one of the best cars I've owned as well as drove.Did nothing but drive it.No problems the whole time I owned the car.I do not know the year that you are looking but the one I had was AWESOME!The steering everyone is talking about is called HICAS.It is four wheel steering as stated, but the amount the rear wheels turn is minimal.As far as handling it was phenominal.I had the pleasure of owning a 94 twin turbo supra as well and the Z out handled it hands down.Both were way ahead of their time,but if I had to pick it would be the Z!Forgot to mention I had two other n/a Z's as well.Those were 90 2+2's.Just a rule of thumb,remember these are sportscars unless they were driven by a 90 year old they probably were driven pretty hard so use you're judgement!Hope this helps!:cheers:

Checked the owner's manual. It is a little more complicated
than I remembered. In one situation the rear wheels do steer
momentarily out of phase with the front.
-

With Super HICAS, driving at low speeds the rear wheels
react as they would in a 2-wheel steering situation, at medium
speeds they steer momentarily in the counter phase to point
the car into the turn, then shift in phase; while during high
speed cornering they are steered only in phase for maximum
cornering force & stability.

I am thinking the same thing. The wife and I want a non turbo 90's 300zx 2+2 with t-tops to restore(when we get our money in order). Or, an early 90's 240 sx convertible. These won't be Fast and Furious cars, but not fully stock either. A few performance/visual mods, new interior, stereo,etc.

I've always wanted something like that as a 'sleeper' car. Something that looks awful but goes like a bat out of hell.

i had a 91' non-turbo 300zx 2 seater that was the best car i have ever owned i actually traded it in along with my camaro and f-150 to get my titan i love my titan but if i could have kept the 300 and still bought the titan i would have mine was non turbo but it was still very quick and handled like nothing i have ever driven if was with out a doubt the best car i have ever owned.....

i dont know much about the turbo cars but just as the car itself you will not regret buying one i am sure of that
