1994 Nissan Silvia K’s S14
Stock Number: 4866
The Silvia has always been known for being a lightweight, tossable, sports car with this one being no exception. This '94 has not only been modified with several performance goodies but it's also been put on a bit of a diet. Finished in Pearl White (WK0), this turbo example is offered with a mere 86K verified miles. The body is in good shape; accented by a set of OEM rear spats and side skirts. Aside from some routine minor dings and chips associated with normal use, there's not much to gripe about on the exterior. This recently serviced two-liter turbo model corners, accelerates, and stops impressively, and looks striking to boot. Recently serviced and legally imported this turn-key Japanese Classic is a killer value for the money!
The cabin feels purposeful, but actually includes a few power accessories you might not expect. The view of the road ahead is clear and unobstructed. A small Blitz boost gauge and electronic boost controller are mounted by the steering wheel. The dash does have a nickel-sized divot and in the middle but we have seen much worse. An Alpine audio head unit with auxiliary input replaces the factory one and doesn't sound too bad. The driver gets a tilt-adjustable wheel and functional electric folding mirrors, locks, and windows. The automatic climate system is easy to operate and seems to work just fine at the moment. The headliner and door cards are in good nick, although the sunroof has been replaced with a lightweight carbon fiber panel in lieu of the weighty glass piece. The passenger seat is a stock Nissan unit and is comfortable to cruise in. The driver gets a more purposeful Recaro fixed back bucket that keeps you snug in the twisties. It does have some bolster wear and fading to note, though that is rather common to see. The glovebox offers some additional storage but we recommend utilizing the back seat, or lack thereof since that's all it's good for at this point. The same goes for the carpet, but then again this isn't a VIP cruiser so it likely won't be a deal-breaker. Privacy tint keeps prying eyes out of the cockpit and temperatures down in the summertime. Also of note a set of HID headlamps for your nightly Togue.
The driveline is legendary as most performance enthusiasts can attest. The fire breathing SR20DET is fresh off an oil and filter service and purrs like a kitten. The startup is brisk thanks to a newly installed 12V battery that should last for the next four years or so. The acoustics are sublime thanks to a short ram intake and aftermarket exhaust. Mated to a manual gearbox, the SR sends its power to the rear wheels. The clutch has been upgraded at some point and is quite grabby. Besides the touchy engagement, it feels beefy, and the transmission shifts without any grinding or hitches. Acceleration is brisk and the gearing is fine for use on US interstates. The ride is firm, as the factory suspension has been replaced by a set of adjustable dampers and upper control arms. In combination with a FET sports front strut towner brace, they reduce the fender gap nicely and allow this S14 to corners flatly. Braking performance is above average and this Silvia has a set of Z32 four-piston clampers upfront. New 18" Stage Monroe wheels are wrapped in new rubber at all corners. The new tires improve the ride and will last for quite a while to come.
