You know the drill. Boy meets Fairlady Z, boy restores Fairlady Z, boy learns Fairlady Z is possessed by a need to kill its owner. Wangan Midnight, the story of the Devil Z and its rivalry against the Blackbird Porsche has been told and retold in manga, anime, live action and video game form. Christine this is not, but you do wonder who is the one possessed, the Z or its owner.
This live action version (the second, actually) has been around since 2009 but here is a subtitled version for those not fluent in Japanese. It’s no doubt the cheesiest retelling, and probably not for car geeks. The S30 Z appears, in various scenes, as a 2+2, S130, and even a Mitsubishi Lancer Celeste. However, it does have some great footage of the Z, Porsche, and other Wangan denizens tearing down Japan’s beautifully lit expressways at night. If you’ve got a hour forty to spare, here it is.
