Both generations Nissan 240SX were built at the Nissan S platform.
The first-generation Nissan 240SX (S13; 1989-1994) was released in 1988 as a 1989 model. It was offered in base and SE trim levels as a 3-door hatch back and base, XE, LE and SE trim levels as a 2-door coupe. In 1992, a 2-door convertible also was added to the lineup and was exclusive to the North American market.

Then the second-generation Nissan 240SX (S14; 1994-1998) was launched in the spring of 1994 as a 1995 model. The 2-door coupe offered in SE and LE trim levels was only body style.
