For 10 years, Nissan's bid to capture part of the entry level sports car market was the 240SX. It was powered by a modest 2.4L 4-cylinder engine delivering, depending on the year, between 140-155hp to the rear wheels. Some claim that's what made the car fun to drive, since front wheel drive cars were in vogue at the time this offered a more enhanced driving experience. Plus the independent rear suspension provided more stability and better handling than a V6 Mustang. However a bland redesign in 1995 and excessive engine and road noise would ultimately kill its prospects in the US and lead to the decision to stop importing the car in 1998. Though with a small resurgence in the drifting community, Nissan 240SX parts are now gaining some demand.
