Paul Newman Livery by JohnnyCrash1313 Considering the entire Nissan Z range was once awarded the prestigious(?) Car of the Year award during the GT6 era of Car of the Week, it could be understood that expectations were high for the 300ZX. However, I soon began thinking that this model might not have been the best choice for the Z's debut in GT Sport. Both against the AI and Online, I found it difficult to get the power down on acceleration and to get through corners without either oversteering or scrubbing off too much speed. As others have noted, I brought out the Acura NSX Type-R (with some power taken away) to benchmark against the 300ZX. We do have to acknowledge the NSX is a different breed of car, but the difference between the cars were stark. Where the Z felt sluggish to respond to inputs of power or steering, the NSX felt direct, sharp, and completely connected with everything I asked of it. The result is a mismatch that the 300ZX has no chance of winning... ....although that didn't stop one person from trying. I'll admit to having some difficulty making up my mind on a verdict, so I'll sum it up like this: Those who are looking for a pure racing machine straight out of the showroom should probably look elsewhere than the 300ZX. For those who just want a fairly cheap car for hooning and other acts of general immaturity though, the Nissan 300ZX seems made to order. It's a Beater for one audience and a Sleeper for another, so I'll split the difference and call it "Neutral."
