[Intro] [Technical Specs] [Performance Specs [Pictures] [Links [Maintenance]
I sold my Z to a friend of mine some time ago, but I decided to keep this page up for a while, since it seems to help people in their search for information. I absolutely loved driving it, but I ran out of money and had to pay off some credit card debt.
One of the most common questions I used to hear is, "How much does your Z cost to own?". I decided to create a Maintenance Page to show the costs associated with my car while I owned it.
In case you're wondering, the background sound is Charles Montgomery Burns from The Simpsons.
The drivetrain is definitely high-tech, and puts out a fairly impressive amount of power for a V6 engine. In addition to the data below, the car also has ABS. NOTE: These numbers came from Motor Trend Magazine.
|Engine||Twin-turbocharged DOHC, 3.0 liter, 24 valve, V6|
|Horsepower||300bhp @ 6400rpm|
|Torque||283lb.-ft. @ 3600|
|Fuel System||Multi-Point Electronic Fuel Injection|
|Transmission||5-speed manual with overdrive|
|Steering||4 wheel (rear is hydraulically controlled)|
|Curb Weight||3287 lbs|
|Sales for 1993||11,599|
Since it has a V6, the car lacks some of the low end torque that you get with a V8. Consequently, the 0-60 time is a bit less than you may expect. At the end of the quarter mile, though, the numbers are quite respectable. NOTE: These numbers came from Motor Trend Magazine.
|Top Speed||~165 mph|
|0-60 Time||5.5 sec|
|Quarter Mile||13.9 sec at 102 mph|
|60-0 Time||128 feet|
|Lateral Accelleration||0.85 g|
|City/Hwy. EPA||18/24 mpg|
These scans are not the best quality in the world, but they're all I have right now. My intention is to put the car into a more natural setting and take some new pictures. Click on the picture to get a bigger version.
This is a picture I came across a while ago. It's not my car, but I liked it so much, I decided to put it on my page. This picture took a lot of guts...it's one thing to drive your car at 175 MPH, it's another to look down long enough to take a picture of your dash! From the angle, though, it could have been a passenger that had the camera.
Here are some Z car related links that I think you will find worth your time to check out. I get quite a bit of email asking about other Z car resources, so hopefully this will save you some time.
