It still wears its original coat of red paint.
Included is a 1960 Datsun Fairlady Roadster.
One of the coolest Z-cars ever.
Better-looking than the Toyota Corolla, more reliable than the Chevrolet Vega, and nearly as cheap as the Volkswagen Super Beetle, the Datsun B210 sold in vast numbers in California. This one had a long run, and now it is set to be crushed, shredded, melted down, and shipped to a steel factory in China.
This high-tech luxury machine, now in a California wrecking yard, is historically interesting for several reasons.
Jay Leno welcomes actor Sung Kang into the garage to check out the Fast and Furious actor's 1973 Datsun 240Z restomod. It sounds wonderfully angry on the road.
Sung Kang set out to build a track toy for him and his friends. Instead, his project car took on a life of its own. Here's the story behind the Fugu Z.
This latest episode of Jay Leno's Garage features a vintage Datsun pickup modified by a couple of average joes, who were invited to show their work at SEMA last year.
Petrolicious profiles a beautifully modified 1972 Nissan Fairlady 240Z-L packed with period-correct parts from the competition catalog. It sounds absolutely sublime.
With the punishing set of responsibilities that come with command of three automakers, 60-year-old Carlos Ghosn is arguably the hardest working man in the auto industry. While his capabilities can hardly be doubted, it's quite clear that he can't do this job forever. And that's probably going to be bad news for the Renault-Nissan Alliance he so successfully helms.
Watch this crash test of the Datsun Go, a small car sold in India, and you'll understand why the country has such a high rate of traffic fatalities.
The Datsun 240Z got a lot of things right when it was introduced, with handsome styling, strong performance and a reasonably affordable price. 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
There has been a steady march of progress in automotive safety over the years, evolving from the initial introduction of seat belts and padded dash surfaces to airbags and anti-lock brakes, and, more recently, to some of today's vehicles that actively try to avoid a crash. Unfortunately, knowing about all of that advancement only makes the incredibly poor performance of the Indian-market Datsun Go in a recent crash test by Global NCAP that much more terrifying to watch.
When Tata introduced the Nano back in 2008, everyone was amazed at how cheap it was. They called it a game changer, but no game was changed. In fact, it took Tata five years to sell the 250,000 units it had the capacity to build in a single year. As it turns out, even buyers in what economists call "developing markets" like India aren't necessarily interested in buying an ultra-cheap automobile. And now it appears that Nissan may be falling into the same trap.
