The Nissan 200sx also known as Silvia and 240sx depending on geography – is a true 90s icon! The sports coupe was made in six generations from 1975 to 2002 and the model is often listed in the Top 10 Japanese sports cars ever made. Many of these cars are being heavily modified, so to come across a completely original vehicle is a rare sight! Luckily; it is still possible like this 1999 Nissan 200sx currently for sale at Fast Classics.
The iconic Nissan 200sx / 240sx / Silvia S14
Nissan started the model line of the 200sx with the Datsun (first generation, S10) in 1975. After that, five more generations followed with the S110 (1979-1984), S12 (1984-1989), S13 (1989-1993), S14 (1993-1999) and S15 (1999-2002). The name Silvia was given to all models based on the Nissan S platform.
The S14 model
The S14 model was lower and wider than its predecessor with a rounder body design style that improved the handling. Despite being very spacious inside, the model is best known for its impressive performance and driving dynamics. The S14 has been raced successfully in the All-Japan Grand Touring Car Championship (now Super GT) and is also a widely popular model for drifting.

Golden era of Japanese sports cars
In the 1990s, Japanese sports cars had a golden age. The Japanese automobile industry used years of experience to build great performance cars that were just as attractive and technically advanced as the more expensive European brands. Plus, Japanese cars quickly got a reputation for better reliability. Suddenly, Ferrari drivers had to look out for the hardcore machines from Nissan, Mazda, Honda, Mitsubishi and Toyota.
Recent value growth has made the 90s models increasingly popular also for investments, but original cars can be hard to find as many of the most popular models have been modified for racing and drifting.
