    You're probably thinking 240SX. (At least in the US, KA24DE, I think it's the 200 everywhere else though).

    Don't listen to vpsec. He is an idiot.

    At first, the 200SX available in the US was the "S" chassis (s10 through S12). In the mid 90's, Nissan decided to call the FWD "B" chassis coupe the "200SX".

    This was the last 200SX in America.

    It became the 240SX after that.

    These cars kick ass, BTW.

    Its the pinnacle of Japanese style. Everything Japanese became halfassed and girly after the 80s were over.

    I can't think of any currently in production, but I'm hardly an authority on the subject.

    This thing IS NOT a 200SX. Regardless of what badge Nissan put on it, it is a Sunny/Sentra/Lucino coupe. The 200SX rebadging was a half-assed attempt to make it look like they sold more varieties of cars than they actually had.

    Say it with me, idiots.
