This generation Silvia was uniquely progressive in that it was originally intended to feature a rotary engine. designed and built by Nissan. The resulting unit was fairly unreliable, and forestalled production. Coincidentally, it shared a chassis code with the also ill-fated Mazda Cosmo. first Japanese production car to feature a rotary engine.

The chassis was no longer shared with the B-series Nissan Sunny. and was upgraded to the larger A-series Nissan Stanza platform.
