Since the launch of the first-generation S30 (1969), the Fairlady Z became an exceptional hit as a sports car with a production total in excess of 1 million units. Special features of the fourth-generation model (Z32), launched in July 1989, included its spirited silhouette – wide proportions, slanted nose, and forward cabin. Both two-seater and 2/2 series were produced.
