Nissan builds the last US Z-car in 1996

Nissan Fairlady in Japan

From 1970-1996, from the 240Z to the 300ZX, Nissan commemorates the Z-car with footage of the last Z-car being built for the United States.

The Datsun Z-car is known as the Nissan Fairlady in Japan, which is why you will see “Fairlady trim” in the footage.
