Welcome :welcome:

Good choice. Watch out for sluggish Boxters in the left lane, you hear? :irock:

You'll have to excuse Jinxxy - she's on some sort of rush until after this "football game" on Sunday...

let me know how you liked .I dont have one yet but soon.are the 06 model all have 300hp.
Yeah I am also considering a 2006 Z (6-speed) and was curious about the newly-rated engine. While the HP went from 287 to 300, the torque was de-rated from 274 to 260 lb-ft. Would this imply that the 2006 engine has less off-the-line low end grunt than the previous models, yet it has better power in the upper range than the previous models?

Please confirm! One of the things I was looking forward to in this car is some fun launches at green lights, and I am concerned that the de-rated torque output may take away some of that fun!
