Changes, changes

So my Box S, after 17 months of ownership, has been replaced by this 2014 370Z Roadster. Maybe it's my OCD or the fear of a 15 year old car's wear items soon needing replacement along with cost of replacement. I've thoroughly enjoyed this forum. Learned lots. Thanks for everything, folks!

Either way, here she is:

That car is a real beauty, I have never understood why these cars seem to be so ignored in the sports car world....I have always found them to be beautiful automobiles.

Along with our Boxster S and 84 Alfa Spider, we have a 2004 350 Roadster that currently has 122K miles. We've owned it for about 2 1/2 years and the car has been very trouble free. The cars do seem to have a chronic issue with the top wearing and tearing around the rear glass window. Hopefully the newer cars don't have the same problem.

Thank you. Feeling is mutual. I picked up this 2014 with only 11k miles.

I have read numerous issues about the top but they seem to be in the earlier models. Regardless, I had the dealer CPO the Roadster just in case. Fingers crossed!

I had a 2008 350Z a few years back also and I really miss it. Now I have a 2003 Boxster S and next year I am definitely going back to a Z. Beautifull car enjoy it.

I had the first year 350Z, totaled it, bought a Boxster and have never looked back. Sorry but for me, I always loved Porsches and felt I had sold out getting a Japanese "sports car". The grip of the Boxster really can't be matched by the Z. Hope you enjoy it and don't total it.
