Nissan launched the Datsun 280Z for the North American market in model year 1975. In an additional effort to keep the S30 models sporty in the face of increasingly stringent US emissions and safety requirements, the engine size was increased. again, this time at 2.8 L. The L26 engine was bored .2 L to create the L28, and a Bosch L-Jetronic fuel injection system was added. The Canadian versions were uniquely equipped without the required anti-smog components in the United States.
Models 1975 and 1976 continued to be equipped with the 5 mph (8.0 km / h) shock absorbing bumpers required by the US government, which were introduced for the mid-1974 model year of the 260Z. These bumpers had a smooth surface and blended with smooth black rubber extensions when they met the car body. The 1977 and 1978 models received bumpers with recessed channels added that were mixed with corrugated or accordion-style black rubber extension moldings. Also new for the 1977 model year, the 280Zs no longer received the full-size spare tire and instead had a «space-saving» spare tire and a larger fuel tank. This resulted in a raised rear deck area made of fibreboard, reducing cargo space. In late 1976 and for most 1977–78 models, an optional five-speed manual transmission was available along with the four-speed manual and three-speed automatic options. It featured a «5-speed» emblem on the lower left edge of the rear hatch. For 1977 there was also a charcoal painted hubcap style upgrade (with a chrome Z floating in the amber center emblems) to a hubcap that resembled an alloy wheel, with a center cap with a Chrome Z floating in a black circle.
In 1977 and 1978, respectively, Datsun offered two special edition models. The «Zap» edition was offered in 1977 as a «special decoration package». The Zap cars had a «sun yellow» paint finish and sported black stripes down the center and sides, with yellow, red, and orange chevrons at the front ends of the stripes. An estimated 1,000 «Zap Z» cars were offered in 1977. The «Zap Z» model was also used as a safety car at the 1977 Long Beach Grand Prix. The Black Pearl Edition (produced in 1978) came with black pearl paint and a «Special Appearance Package» (SAP), which It consisted of dual racing mirrors, rear window grilles, and unique red and silver stripes. It has been estimated that each distributor in the United States was assigned an edition of Black Pearl to sell, although, due to high demand, some distributors were reported to have received an additional allocation. It is estimated that between 750 and 1,500 of these cars were eventually produced, however the exact number is unknown. Both the two-seat 280Z and 2 + 2 coupe remained available throughout the 1975-1978 model year. The S30 series was replaced in 1979 by the Nissan S130.
