The Japanese automaker Nissan ran into trouble in the U.S. and even in its own country in the mid 1990s.
Here in the states, almost all turbocharged imports were getting a bad name because of eager enthusiasts blowing up their rotary Mazda’s motor or the smog problems faced by cars like the almighty Toyota Supra.
Even Nissan decided to pull the technologically advanced 300ZX TT off the market because it just became too expensive for a conservative market.
At home, the twin turbo Z32 lived on until the year 2000, the all around excellent sports car found itself in a precarious position between the much more affordable and equally as desirable S15 Silvia and Godzilla himself, the R34 Skyline GT-R.
At the end of the day Nissan killed off all of its turbo sports cars, but the Z was unfortunately the first to bite the dust.
