Nissan S30

The Nissan S30 (sold in Japan as the Nissan Fairlady Z and in other markets as the Datsun 240Z, then later as the 260Z and 280Z) was the first generation of Z GT two-seat coupes, produced by Nissan Motors, Ltd. of Japan from 1969 to 1978. One of the most successful sports car lines ever produced, the trend-setting S30 was designed by a team led by Yoshihiko Matsuo, the head of Nissan's Sports Car Styling Studio.

The Datsun (Nissan) 240z S30, holds a definite place in the automotive history, not only in the American Automobile Industry but the Automotive Industry across the world. Ever since its debut in 1970 the 240z was marketed as having the looks of an exotic British car with handling of a Italian car, but at a small fraction of the price. Datsun had produced the everyday man's Inline Six powered, 2 door, 2 seater, sports car. Already known across America for its reliability the Datsun 240z would evolve tweaking and perfecting every aspect of the sports car, while giving America's Sports Car, the Chevrolet Corvette tough competition with two less cylinders of engine; hence the Z-car's nickname Japanese Corvette. After improving into the 260z and 280z during the late 70s, the Datsun made a slight transformation with the early 80s 280zx which offered luxury options such as fuel injection, color matching leather interior, and T-Tops. In 1984 the Datsun officially transitioned into Nissan and named the Z-Car of the year the 300zx, which now instead of a inline six engine sported a V6 engine with available turbo. The 300zx would change aesthetically ever so slightly in the 90s ending the tradition of NIssan sports car heritage in 2000. Until in 2002 when Nissan revealed the 350z rebirthing of the Z-car and the 370z in 2010. To this day the Datsun/Nissan Z-Car is the number 1 selling sports car of all time.
