With the 300ZX about to end production in 1995, Nissan needed to fill the gap. The 200SX had been in production since 1988 and had steadily been growing in popularity, so they took that car and complete re-vamped it for 1994, adding more performance and improving areas where the old car had been criticized. Formerly a fastback inspired by the Porsche 944, the new car had a coupe body and was also re-styled inside to look more European. The engine was increased in size from 110 to 122ci (1.8 to 2 liters) and featured twin overhead cams, variable intake timing to increase torque at low rpm and a low-pressure turbocharger with intercooler. A MacPherson front and multi-link rear suspension set-up gave fantastic handling, more biased to driver involvement because it used rear-wheel drive. Due to low sales, the car was re-styled with a more aggressive front for 1996.
