That depends on what you mean by production car. Anybody can build a car that's faster than stink, and some actually do.

Remember, 1983 was the height of the fuel crisis and close to peak historic gas prices. There were precious few cars back then that weren't seriously detuned. The top stock Camaro had something like 145hp and was FAR heavier than the heaviest Z of the time. ( Just look at them now, ha ha. )

The 280ZX Turbo was a very impressive performer for its day, and faster cars were very few.

Times have changed, of course, now that gas is so cheap that people can actually afford to drive tractors on the Interstates to visit Grandma.
