10 Nissan Sport Cars
Check out the list of 10 Nissan sports cars. In 2011, Nissan proudly sports the 370Z and the GT-R line. These Nissan sports cars a sleek, fast and powerful. Through the years, Japanese maker has presented winners like the Skyline R-35 but has also produce absolute loosers like the 240SX.
- 2010 370-Z. Available in the coupe or the GT pack, this sleek sports car represents all that is new and exciting from the Nissan Sports car line. It is similar to the Porsche in design and comes equipped with a powerful 3.7 liter engine.
- 2009 (Skyline R-35) Nissan GTR. The GTR is incredibly fast and nimble, with a twin-turbo 3.8 liter V6 engine that has 474 horsepower! An amazing and stylish sports car, the GTR won Motor Trends 2009 Car of the Year award, and smashed the record lap time at the Nrburging track in Germany.
- 2002 Nissan 350Z. This sporty coupe boasts a powerful 3.5 liter V6 engine that can go from 0-60 mph in 5.7 seconds! It handles beautifully and has a top speed of 153 mph. It’s most prominent stylish feature is the sloping fastback roof.
- 1996 Nissan 300ZX Twin Turbo. The 300ZX was named by Car and Driver magazine as one of the top ten sports cars around the world -- seven years in a row. The 300ZX has a powerful twin turbo 3.0 liter V6 engine that has 280 horsepower. This sports car is best known for its ability to handle sharp turns at fast speeds. Sadly, it is no longer in production.
- 1996 Nissan 300ZX Convertible. The 1996 version of the 300ZX is a spinoff of the regular 300ZX with a removable hard-top that makes all the difference in the world. Equipped with a fast 3.0 liter V6 engine, it’s sad to say that 1996 was the final year of production for this nifty Nissan sports car.
- 2009 Nissan Maxima S Sedan. Although not considered to be a true sports car, the Nissan Maxima has always been perceived as a family-oriented vehicle with sports car power. Its standard engine is a 3.5 liter V6 with 290 horsepower. This seventh-generation vehicle has a sporty design and handles like a sports car.
- 2007 Nissan 350Z NISMO. The downside to this spectacular performance Nissan sports car is the loud engine at high rpms. The engine is a 3.5 liter V6 with 306 horsepower. It handles expertly around curves and has a fast pick-up speed (for passing). Lightening fast, the 350Z NISMO goes from 0-60 in a startlingly quick 5.1 seconds.
- 1989 Nissan Skyline GT-R. Widely considered to be one of the fastest original sport coupes ever made by Nissan, the Skyline GT-R could go from 0-60 mph in an unbelievably fast 4.7 seconds. It’s very strong engine is a twin turbo, 2.6 liter in-line V6 pushing 276 horsepower.
- 1993 Nissan 240SX Convertible. The 240SX did not last very long because of poor sales and quite frankly, the only reason it made the Nissan sports car line-up is for nostalgic reasons. The convertible version looked so AWESOME back in the day. Lightweight and slippery if the tires were not new, poor performance and poor sales led to the downfall of Nissan’s 240SX line intentions. The engine was a moderately fast 2.4 liter 4-cylinder that was quick-moving but not fast.
- 1993 Nissan 240SX Coupe. Clearly Nissan had plans for the 240SX line, and so they added the 240SX Coupe to the Nissan sports car line up. This 240SX performed just as poorly as the convertible in the same line. Nissan rightly shut down production of the line.
