1994 Nissan Silvia S14 Q’s
The S14 has become a legend in its own right. Long, low lines, paired with phenomenal balance, wrapped up in the proper RWD platform, what more could you really ask for? Finished in in the timeless Pearl White (WK0) this Zenki is a real head turner with it's all stock body. Sometimes the best looking cars are the least tampered with, and this car being left all OEM is a refreshing find. The paint looks exceptional for it's age with only minor blemishes from being driven over the years. The body shows just as well, nice and straight with door gaps that line up properly. Like any 25 year old car it does have some routine little blemishes, but with only 74K verified miles it shows exceptionally well for its age. Even the original 15" multi spoke wheels are in good shape and hint towards it's sporty nature.
The new and improved interior is a fantastic upgrade over the S13's. The dash layout is much more refined while keeping the easy to read layout. The interior remains largely stock and in good condition. The factory seats are very comfortable, yet offer good side bolstering. Both the driver and passenger seats show rather well, free of any routine staining or tears. However, as noted in the photos, the driver's side bolster does have a hole from getting in and out over the years. Like all coupes, the rear seats look hardly ever used. The carpeting and door panels have been kept up to the same standards. Like the S13 before it, the dash on this one has suffered from the common cracking issue. All of the power accessories are working as they should; the power windows, door locks, folding mirrors, and automatic climate control. The A/C is blowing cold and is very straight forward to work with. These simplistic, yet refined, interiors really prevent themselves from looking dated.
Power comes compliments of Nissan's aluminum block SR20DE. While most complain about the naturally aspirated version, driving it will make you second guess yourself. The power comes on quickly as there's no turbo lag to deal with and it pulls very linear all the way through the rev range. And if you can manage to keep your foot out of it, you'll actually return some solid MPG's as this would make a fantastic daily seeing as it only has 74K verified miles. The 5 speed shifts phenomenally which in turn makes the NA power band even more exciting. Clutch engagement is smooth and hassle free. The gearbox is well sorted and a blast when you get out into the backroads. For reliability sake the engine has been left bone stock just like Nissan would have wanted. This extremely versatile chassis has become a staple between it's top notch drive train and iconic looks. While we've had it our trained techs have gone over it and brought several key maintenance items ups to date. A new air and fuel filter, fresh set of plugs, new tires all around, along with a new idler pulley and serpentine belt round out the list. This exceptionally clean S chassis is just begging to see some seat time. With this particular setup it should make a great new daily driver for someone looking to stand out in a crowd.
