Nissan 240SX Information History

The Nissan 240SX was a car introduced to the North American market by Nissan in 1989 and sold there until 1998. It replaced the 200SX(RWD) in 89′. The 240SX was equipped with a 2.4 L inline 4 engine (KA24E from 1989-1990 and KA24DE from 1991-1998). Two distinct generations of the 240SX, the S13 (1989-1994) and the S14 (1995-1998), were produced from the Nissan S platform.

The 240SX is closely related to other S vehicles: the Japanese-market Silvia and 180SX and the European/Australian-market 200SX.


During the first generation, three body styles were available: fastback, coupe, and convertible.

The coupe is closely related to the Japanese-market Silvia except for having retractable headlamps. The fastback is closely related to the Japanese-market 180SX. The convertible, introduced in 1992, was exclusive to North America and was the only body style available in 1994. The convertible was partially assembled in Japan, with final assembly taking place in the California facilities of American Specialty Cars (ASC).

All S13 240SXs were largely similar with differences between trim lines (XE, SE, LE, etc.) being mainly cosmetic. The lone exception, the 91-93 SE fastbacks, had an exclusive optional sport package containing a stiffer suspension, a limited-slip differential, and SUPER-HICAS 4-wheel steering.

The S13 was known for its sharp steering/handling (thanks to a front strut, rear multilink suspension) but was regarded in the automotive press as being underpowered. The 2.4L engine, while durable, was a heavy, iron-block unit that produced meager power for its size 140-155 hp (104-115 kW), rough sounds, and since becoming a 16-valve twin-cam in 1991, requires premium fuel. This engine is the main distinction between North America’s 240SX and world-market Silvia/180SX.

As the cars have aged, Japanese SR20DET engine swaps have become an increasingly popular 240SX modification. At the same time, a large community has developed of owners turbocharging the 2.4 L KA engine, with great success.


The 240SX was redesigned with the Zenki Silvia body in spring 1994 as an early 1995 model. The hatchback and convertible were gone, leaving only the coupe. Aside from adding dual air bags and normal headlights, the S14 was almost the same car as the S13, but steering became slower and handling softer, lowering its fun-to-drive factor.

Its 155 horsepower looked more inadequate with each passing year in light of 200-horsepower Honda Preludes. Note that there was now a difference between base and SE models, the former having having 15-inch wheels (vs. 16s), a softer suspension, and missing a rear stabilizer bar.

Antilock brakes and a limited-slip differential came as a package. In 1997 it sported the S14A Kouki Silvia body style (aggressive projector headlights, new front bumper, hood, fenders, revised taillights, curved rocker panels, along with side skirts on SE and LE trim levels). 1998 was the last year of the 240SX in North America.

Nissan 240SX


Japan saw a new version of the Silvia (S15) in 1999, now boasting 250 hp (164 kW) from its SR20DET engine; Australia and New Zealand eventually got it as their new 200SX, though Europe did not. Production of the Silvia (and Fairlady/300ZX) ended in 2002 amidst Nissan’s efforts to reduce its number of platforms. Nissan’s sole sports car platform in the world is now the FM Platform, which underpins America’s 350Z and Infiniti G35 and will serve as next the Skyline GT-R.

Weight-conscious sports car fans should note that the 2800 lb (1270 kg) 240SX is 500 lb (225 kg) lighter than the new 350Z.


– Every 240SX was built in Kyushu, Japan. The last 240SX rolled off the assembly line on July 23, 1998.

– Automatic models also feature Nissan’s DUET-EA system. A electronic link between the engine control module (ECM) and the transmission to facilitate smoother, more controlled shifts.
