Nissan Z: 50 Years of Exhilarating Performance is the Nissan-official chronicle of Z history, from Datsuns planning for the new model in the late 1960s through the latest 50th anniversary Nissan 370Z and the all-new Z Proto.

The Datsun 240Z revolutionized the sports car industry and demolished established assumptions about Japanese automakers. With the Z, Datsun gave the world a sleek, sexy, fast product-one that forever banished the idea that Japanese manufacturers could only build economy cars.

Over the past 50 years, six generations of the Z car have generated a massive, devoted following. More than 1.5 million cars have been sold worldwide. The retro-inspired 350Z reinvigorated the Zs fortunes in the 21st century, and the latest incarnation, the 370Z, continues the tradition of high-performance in a modern, affordable package. In addition, the all-new Z Proto points the way forward for Z-car performance.

In addition to a complete history of the Z, this handsomely illustrated book examines the cars significant racing history with successes in IMSA and SCCA sports car racing, including extensive racing by Paul Newman for Bob Sharp and John Morton with Brock Racing Enterprises. Special attention is devoted to the cult of Z-fans around the world who have supported Nissans sports car through thick and thin and the early cars emergence as a rapidly appreciating collector car.
