Whew, glad you saw that. I contribued to a bunch of the varying car articles on Wikipedia, and over time they get bastardized by teenagers. There is no way to trust anything on Wiki. It is like asking a group of 100 people and then taking the average answer... you get the popular answer, but sometimes not the right one.
Anyway, my definition of supercar (arbitrary, capricious):
1) Low production numbers (ie. on the order of less than a couple thousand). 300zx does not qualify.
2) Very expensive, to the point of being unattainable by most of the population. 300zx does not qualify.
3) Exceptional performance numbers for the time/era. 300zx had decent numbers, but was by no means steller with 300hp/280lbs.
4) Outstanding or redefining in their category. The Enzo redefined what it meant to be a sports car, for example, with an F1-style chassis.
The 300zx arguably redefined styling in some ways, but was considered uglier than the Supra by many.
5) Rare on the streets.
300zxs are still somewhat common in the Pacific northwest. I can typically see one every second day, sometimes every day. That just is not rare. How many Enzos do I see on the road? Maybe one per year.
My back up light does not work. Many years ago I had the transmission down to do a clutch job. Determining that the switch was bad (jumper the plug) I replaced it. However I replaced it with an aftermarket switch and it does not work. It needs more "throw" in order to engage the circuit. The Z...
Hi everyone, I have converted my 1990 300zx 2+2 to LEDs (mostly). There have been a couple issues since however.
#1 . The red 'Lights' warning light on the dash comes on when braking. I'll try to post a pic.
#2 . The trunk light flashes quickly when closing the driver's side door.
#3 . The...
I have owned my Z for 15+ years, and this is a first time she has left me stranded. Well there was that time the starter fell out of the transmission but I pushed started it and drove it home.
Cold last night. This morning the temp was 10 when I got into the car. Didn't drive it all this...
