Can someone tell me the differences in performance and size (dimensions), between a 280ZX 2+2 and a Pulsar NXSE? Thanks!

as a z car fan who has also owned nx's and pulsars, i can tell you that the 280 is longer heavier and much slower. as for width i'm not sure. if the pulsar is a 16 valve, it is a quick car (good autocrosser). if you are considering one or the other, i would suggest looking for an nx 2000. quirky looking yes, but fast, reliable, and with very little $ in mods, it will handle like a go-cart.

What is an nx 2000? Is it a Z car or a pulsar? What year are we talking about? A 2000? I'm looking for a used vehicle!

nissan made nx 2000's from 1991-1993. they are 2 door hatchbacks with t-tops and a 2.0 liter 140 hp 4 cyl.(same as a sentra se-r). they replaced the pulsar. i've owned 2 (also owned 4 z's), and for everyday driving it's a great car. 25 mpg, 140 hp, front wheel drive w/a limited slip from the factory. in the early 90's, car and driver called it one of the 10 best handling cars in the world. check out www.se-r.net for pics and info.

Can anyone actually give me the exact interior and exterior dimensions of a 280ZX and a Nissan Pulsar NXSE? It is important to look at BOTH for the comparison! I'm looking at buying one or the other!
Thanks!
