Nissan North America is shifting into high gear for the upcoming International Z® Car Convention being held from August 5 to 9. In celebration of the company’s sports car heritage, Z® car owners and enthusiasts will display nearly 300 Nissan sports cars dating back to the early 1970s during the event. During the 27th annual convention, Nissan is offering a few limited tours of its design center in La Jolla, Calif., to give Z owners an exclusive, behind-the-scenes look into how iconic vehicles like the Nissan 370Z are born.
In 1994, Steve Millen and the No. 75 Nissan 300ZX won the IMSA GTS class at the 24 Hour of Le Mans (including 5th place overall) and the 12 Hours of Sebring, along with the 1994 IMSA GTS Drivers' and Manufacturers' Championship.
Twenty years from now, when racing historians look back at the 2014 24 Hours of Le Mans, they will likely make note of Nissan's entry of the innovative ZEOD RC's historic full competition lap under all-electric power.
It's an annual favorite of car buffs, industry veterans and kids of all ages, but the four-day Goodwood Festival of Speed is also a chance to reflect on some of the cars of yesterday, today and tomorrow.
