Alright when my z was stock I walked wrx sti’s from 40roll, from a dig the sti would be about a car ahead but the z’s long gear make it catch up and pass it easily. the low 14s to high 13s is about right for the quarter mile, and the actual 0to60 is 4.7. These are things that I know if your z doesn’t run like that you probably have an auto, high miles or something is wrong, yes 100,000 is high

gc8 sti thrashed these dude, your thinking of later heavier sti's, early ones weighed 200kg less than the 300 and had just as much power

I know 4 years is a long time to pass before an answer is posted but...

The U.S verison of the 300ZX Turbo came with either 300bhp 5 speed manual or a 280bhp with 4 speed auto.

No way a 300zx twin turbo ran the 1/4 mile in 13.6, I'd be inclined to agree with road and track.

As for power it'll be BHP, Back when this thing was built the jap's had some sort of agreement to limit their cars to around the 280bhp mark.

Im confused about the source of this data
1)Is the a forign Spec version of the car?
2)Is the Hp rating Brake Hp or Crank Hp?
I ask because the United States Spec model came with 300HP and would 1/4mi in 13.6 seconds. Also road & tracks 1/4mi times seem a little high for the cars tested in the article sited on this page.
