depends on driver. Unless the 240z has an insane driver I'll put my money on the porsche. That is if the porsche driver knows how to handle it. I think the z is the prettier car tho haha

Well its kinda hard to say. For starters the Datsun 240z had three different models with three different transmissions (the 3, 4 and the 5 speed).

Well with that in mind lets look at the maximum spec of each car (unmoded of course)

Datsun 240z
Engine :2.6L
Power: 165hp
Top Speed: 127mph
0 to 60 in 9 secs (that was pretty fast for the 70s)


Porsche 964 Turbo
Engine:3.6L
Power: 247hp
Top Speed: 163mph
0 to 60 in 5.8sec


I'm tempted to agree with Milchae saying that

Unless the 240z has an insane driver I'll put my money on the porsche
but the difference in performance is too just much.

Besides that, I have been in a Datsun before...I gotta tell you..it is not a walk in the park. It was a crappy car (even for then). The handling sucked and it was pretty much a smog machine. Although I have not driven or been in a Porsche before..I'd rather take anything else lol.

The 2.6 liter Z is a 260Z, correct specs for a stock 240Z...
stock S-30 240Z
Engine: 2.4L inline-6
Power: 151 hp
Top Speed: 125 mph
0 to 60 mph in 8 secs


Correct specs for a stock 964 Turbo
Stock Porsche (Type-964) 911 Turbo
Engine: 3.6L flat-6 turbo with high-flow air to air intercooler
Power: 355 hp
Top Speed: 174 mph
0 to 60 mph in 4.7 sec


The Z-car that was available at the time of the Type-964 Porsche 911 was the Z-32 300ZX.
stock Z-32 300ZX Turbo
Engine: 3.0L Twin-turbo V6
Power: 300 hp
Top Speed: 155 mph
0 to 60 mph in 5.6 secs (*car and driver test)


Who do you think will win? I believe a Porsche Turbo will be both faster and safer than a modified 240Z, so the Porsche wins.
Another thing, you will need to do major modifications to the 240Z just to make it probably go as fast as a stock non-turbo 964 911 Carrera 2, so making a 240Z go as fast or faster than a stock 964 Turbo will probably be one big headache. Expect tons of handling/stability and structural problems.


Best Motoring did a test of the Wangan cars (although they weren't tuned to be as strong as the ones in Wangan Midnight, you will have an idea of the characteristics of these cars and how stable or unstable some of these cars are at super high-speeds.

I agree.
The 240Z will need so many modifications just to get to go as fast as a non-turbo Type-964 911 Carrera 2.
The 355hp Type-964 911 Turbo


The Type-964 911 based 415hp 1993 Ruf BTR 3.8

Top Speed 198 mph (319 km/h)
0-60 mph in 3.6 sec (that was super fast back in 1993)
