And while the coupes grew a strong fan base in the US, they remained quite a rarity in the UK. Decades later, a father and son in England have latched onto the car and bonded over their shared love for two completely opposite takes on this Japanese GT

Subaru Legacy pitted against Roadkill project cars

There's an evergreen debate among auto enthusiasts about whether they would prefer to have the latest and greatest car of today or a certified classic from yesteryear. What if you had to further define that, though, and the choice was between a brand new 2015 Subaru Legacy or a turbocharged Datsun 240Z with a hatch that wouldn't close? Roadkill aimed to find out that and more in one of its best videos to date.

Electric Federal searches for what made the Datsun 240Z great

We may take it for granted now that the Japanese make great sports cars, whether it's a Mazda MX-5 or a Lexus LFA. But back in the late 1960s and well into the '70s, it all came down to one car, and that was the Datsun 240Z.

Datsun 240Z dares to be different with Petrolicious

When it was new in 1969, the Datsun 240Z was a European-style Japanese sportscar. It had a straight six like the E9 BMW 2800CS and styling that somewhat mimicked the Jaguar E-Type, with its sugar-scoop headlamps, long hood and cab-backwards design. At the time, it was a cheaper alternative to those European cars and others like the Porsche 911. Over the years, the Datsun has come into its own, and while it's still cheaper than most of its European contemporaries on the secondhand market, owners

Spy Shots: 2011 Nissan 370Z 40th Anniversary Edition spotted

The crew over at Inside Line got its hands on some rather curious spy photos of the new 2011 Nissan 370Z 40th Anniversary Edition. Why curious? Most of the time, spy photographers work from behind massive lenses at long distances because the secretive engineers don't want themselves or the car they're testing to be photographed. But these shots look almost... composed. Or at least like the person manning the camera is on a first name basis with the folks at Nissan.

REPORT: Nissan's Fiesty Mr. K calls out the 370Z

Recently one of our bloggers raised the hackles of many a commenter by announcing to the world that he preferred driving a Nissan Versa to the new 370Z. You can hear the whole exchange on Autoblog Podcast #140. To protect this poor blogger's identity, he shall remain nameless (we'll call him Jonny X for short. No, too obvious. Let's go with X Lieberman). Point is, obviously this person is out of his mind because who on earth prefers driving a economy car like the Versa to a Z? Turns out Nissan's
