nope. The "ZX" logo stands for Z-extra (I think) So a ZX is the Z with the extra goodies. power windows, cruze control, power steering, nicer interior and so on. Also there were changes made to the suspention, interior shape and over size of the car.. I realy loved the way my 280ZX looked in everyway, but the drivers area was less roomey than my Z. The 280Z has more space in the cockpiit and less hatch space, the 280ZX Has a bit less seating area but a bit more hatch.
