Assuming you mean this one:


Pity they never removed the Dealer installed trim from the sides.
It would have been nice to see an engine bay photo in the listing.
That said, it does look nice albeit pricey.

No Zed is really as thats 911 territory and in a different class and more sought after

Let’s all hope it sells. Stop being so negative! You own one, you should want the values to increase.
They’re worth every penny if you ask me. They’re peak 1970’s performance drivers cars for much less than the cost of an equivalent 911.

Go buy yourself a new EV for 60k or Chuck 50k in a 240Z and 10k of fuel. I know which will be more fun.

Not being negative just stating a fact and it’s an opinion backed up by the fact that all those high price Zeds are still for sale months and months later or even years ,not slagging the car off for one minute it’s the jokers out there asking silly money and some poor sod getting ripped off which annoys me,yeah agree with the 240 bit ,that’s one reason I've got a couple of scoobies,done all the modern day boring rubbish and there were a few cars from the 70s that had better performance than a Z ,I had some of them ,showing me age there aren’t I,but yeah The Z is iconic in its own right,

Unless a car falls under the ‘deliberate deceit’ category, such as a ringer, a cut and shut or badly botched/dangerous repairs, there is no “some poor sod getting ripped off”.
If you can’t/don’t do any research into a 60k car you intend to buy, regarding the current market values, common problems, etc, then you are probably stupid or rich (or both).
If you don’t know anything about cars, find someone who does or get a vehicle inspection done.
The price of restored cars is going to be affected with the rise in the cost of manufacturing and shipping spare/replacement parts.
You just need to look at the cost of shipping items from the US compared with a couple of years ago.
I realize it’s a different market in Continental Europe, but the likes of Bavaria Sports Cars in Munich seem to have a steady stream of 45-60k euro S30s going out their doors.

In my book they are getting ripped off if they pay over the odds and it’s usually someone that’s not mechanically minded or knows little about cars and I don’t know of any Zeds that are worth 60 k and as for the Munich bit we are over here and they are over there,different market,my Z 4 m coupe low mileage wot do you think that’ll be worth,truth of tne matter is most cars be it classic or wot we class as future classics will come down in price with a few exceptions including Zeds,Hope I’m wrong as I’ll be putting mine up for 80 k if that 280 goes for 60 k and I bet there are others thinking the same

IMO this is way over priced. I think the late 280z is a good car in its own right but will never be the same as a 240z. The first cars of a series generally command the highest prices when comparing similar cars. "Better" does not mean more valuable. Repainted and retrimmed does not mean restored and from the pictures this is not restored (just look at the door lock). I see this as a 25-30k car IMO. I don't believe prices have gone up much in the last 3 years.

I’d agree with that . I was looking at what they are and have been going for on BaT- ( not the best guide ).

There have been nicer at half the price. The only one more expensive - was the 350 miles from new one!
