Today's Autotrader find is a bubble-era Nissan that you might've forgotten about. It's a 1993 Nissan NX2000. A follow-up to the angular, modular Pulsar NX offered in the 1980s, the NX debuted for the 1991 model year. Built on the same front-wheel-drive platform as the Sentra, the NX competed with vehicles such as the Mazda MX-3, the Toyota MR2, the Isuzu Impulse, the Geo Storm and the Honda Del Sol. Each of those vehicles offered unique design elements, and the NX was no different. Though it lacked its predecessor's removable rear hatch, the NX came with removable roof panels over the driver and passenger seats, allowing for an open-air driving experience when you wanted it.

Two trim levels were offered. The base NX1600 came with the Sentra's basic 1.6-liter 4-cylinder engine, and the NX2000 came with a 2.0-liter 4-cylinder from the Sentra SE-R making about 150 horsepower. Transmission options were a 5-speed manual or a 4-speed automatic.

U.S. sales of the NX lasted between the 1991 and 1993 model years, making it a rare bird. This one is a 1993 NX2000 model with the more powerful engine and the 5-speed manual transmission. The Nissan NX2000 didn't use a turbocharged engine, but the seller's mention of a turbo, combined with the presence of an auxiliary gauge in the center stack, tells us that an aftermarket unit might be under the hood. While it certainly isn't the cleanest example -- bringing it back to presentable condition would mean sourcing a new front bumper, new wheels, some trim pieces and maybe a new hood, if that aftermarket scoop is cut all the way through -- the price of $1,200 sure is right. It's in Ogden, Utah. Find a Nissan NX for sale
