I can't find either of these stats anywhere. Top speed and quarter mile times for a STOCK 1983 280ZX Turbo. If you nkow off hand where to find this info or if you already know - please tell me !!! Those darn speedometers only go up to 80 and the local strip doesn't allow the average joe to use the 1/4 mile track.
Thanks
Dave

The 81 through 83 Turbos are essentially the same. All rated at 180 hp and 203 lb ft torque.

Fastest times I have read about were 6.8 0-60 and 15.2 1/4 @ 89mph. Top speed listed was 126mph This was for a 81 turbo automatic.

The best stats I have seen on the 83 turbo 5 speed are: 7.1 0-60 15.4 @ 90mph in 1/4. And a top speed of 135mph.

Motorsports Auto, 714-639-2620, has a couple of nice books you can buy that contain reprints of the majority of the road tests done by leading car magazines during that period of time.
