The 1990s were a great time for Japanese performance. Cars like the Toyota Supra Turbo, Mitsubishi 3000GT VR4, Acura NSX, Mazda RX-7, and Nissan 300ZX Turbo paired big power with tech and reliability, all of which forced exotic car makers like Porsche and Ferrari to make their cars perform similarly.
The problem is that many of these Japanese speed machines were modified by owners and driven in to ground, meaning it's incredibly hard to find a low-mileage, stock version of any of these cars. A little while back, a $5,600 mile Supra Turbo was put on the market for $99,990. As far as we can tell, the and it hasn't sold.
But what did sell was this pristine 300ZX Turbo with just 528 miles on the odometer. This manual transmission coupe in black over tan (with ugly chrome wheels) sold for, ahem,
Now, these are good cars, great cars, even, but you really need to have a connection to the Z to spend that much money on one. You can get a Cayman GT4 for that money. A new Corvette Grand Sport. Three Miatas.
Now it'll either be off to another owner who will leave it in mothballs, selling it for $200,000 in another 20 years, or someone who never got to drive a new 300ZX and will run it till it breaks.
