The Nissan Silvia is special for so many reasons, and are almost universally loved. Looking at the current US market value on the S14, it's hard to argue that demand isn't slowing down one bit. While most examples for sale have been heavily modified for motorsports such as drifting, we are proud to offer this unmolested 1994 Q's, with only 44K verified miles. Finished in Blue Emerald Green (FN2), the body is in good shape other than the typical scuffs, dings, and chips associated with daily use. The timeless front-engine rear-drive proportions allude to the sporty nature of the platform and a tasty manual transmission and efficient four-cylinder SR20DE propel the S14.
The interior of the S14 is simple, spartan, yet carefully designed. The Zebra striped seats fit the fun personality of the S14 and are bolstered for comfort rather than performance. Visibility is key, and the low slung dash us unobstructed. Beyond some drivers side bolster wear, the dashboard is the most notable interior flaw. While suffering from cracking a custom Shevron cover has been fashioned to obscure the damage. The remainder of the interior plastics are in good shape, as are the door cards and headliner. The carpets are also in good condition, as the factory carpet mats were used for protection against any excessive damage. These carpet mats, as well as the manuals, are included with the purchase. Power amenities such as locks, mirrors, and windows all work as they should, and even the power-folding function still operates flawlessly. The A/C and heat can cope with both temperature extremes, and the S14 does feature a digital climate system. The only modification noted on this otherwise OEM car is an updated Eclipse head unit. This touchscreen unit powers the speakers properly and fills the cabin with some sweet tunes when requested.
Mechanically, this S14 is simple and known for its durability. The non-turbocharged engine offers a very linear torque band and deals with considerably less heat than its force inducted sibling. Delivering better fuel economy, this 1998cc mill benefits from a fresh oil and filter service, ensuring no scheduled maintenance need be performed for another three thousand miles. The startup is smooth and effortless and the SR chugs to life and sets into a constant idle. Rowing through the close-ratio gearbox is a hoot, and the five-speed unit shifts without a hitch or grind. The OEM suspension provides nearly as much ground clearance as an Expedition but more importantly soaks up bumps big and small. The brakes are very good, and stop this lightweight coupe down to nothing in a jiffy. The steering system is fabulous, and while a touch light, gives plenty of feedback to the driver. The factory silver alloys feature new all-season rubber, mounted and balanced at all four corners and provides plenty of grip in the wet and dry.
This simple, yet overachieving S14 is up to date on maintenance and Virginia state policy safety inspected. Boasting low cost of ownership, easy to find performance parts, and top tier driving dynamics this Silvia Q's is an instant Japanese Classic.
