My sporty temptation from Nippon - Nissan Z (2023)

In my automotive timeline there are some German, many European, mostly Swedish cars. But there are also exactly two Japanese. There would be a Mazda RX 7 Wankel (SA22C) and a Datsun (not Nissan) Sunny Coupe (B310). The red Sunny Coupe replaced my Austin Mini 1275, which had previously gone up in smoke and fire.

That was a long time ago, I was still very young, but the Nissan dealer had a Datsun 260Z next to the red Sunny Coupe. That, and its successor, the 280 ZX, appealed to me. My youthful account balance alone brought me back to reality. The 260Z was great. But the Sunny Coupe was within budget. So the Z Car was done. I wasn't interested in what later came from Nissan. Til today. With the Nissan Z (2023), temptation and memory return.

This is my first time writing about a Japanese car. Oh dear, one or the other reader will now say. What is he expecting of us again? But no worry. That won't work, as I'll find out.
