The 280Z was the final evolution of the first generation of Z cars, originally spawned by the 240Z in 1969. Although the 280 carried many similar traits of her sister cars, (the 240 & 260), the 280 offered larger federally mandated bumpers, a bigger bore engine, fuel injection and a five speed manual gearbox first available in 1977. The following year would see the last production of the 280Z. The next generation Z car, the 280ZX took the Z Series into a more refined GT/luxurious direction.
Nissan was able to create its own market in the sports car world, and essentially wipe out its British competitors in America. Within a few years, the Z became the top selling sports car of all time, an honor once held by the Chevrolet Corvette. Additionally, it changed the public's perception of Japanese cars forever with its performance, reliability and affordability. Road and Track declared the original Z as one of the ten most important cars of all time.
