Don't know. Had to look out for the "DANGER" ahead.

I thought triple-black means "black exterior, black interior, black wheels"...?

I think triple Black means black paint, black top and black leather. Black wheels would mean QuadBlack!!

Depends. Wearing black shoes or red?

Z, are you bothered by the fact that the 07 987S's will have a 3.4 liter in them? Was this a factor in your decision to buy an 06?

Just wondering. Putting myself in your place, I'd be pissed that for similar money I could have gotten a larger engine.

They aren't jacking the prices up for the 07 S's?

another .2 in your displacement isn't very dramatic. I doubt an xtra 20 ponies would reinvent a car. When excellence reviewed the 987 SPortec with the 3.8 engine they felt the chasis could have handled a heck of allot more. Sounds to me like they weren't blown away.

Put 450 HP in the car and then you'll see a whole different Boxster.

Randall, I try not to be bothered by hypotheticals. Life's too short. Fact is that the news wasn't out yet when I bought my 06 (mid-May). I would have preferred (and paid more for) the 3.4L engine if it was available but in retrospect I would have still done the same (bought the 06) even if I knew about the engine increase.
Reasons:
1. Time is $. Didn't want to miss this summer without the S. (And boy am I happy for not missing it!) What good is a 3.4L coming to me in October only to be sitting stored for the winter?
2. The discount I got for the 06 off the lot was very enticing -- probably not even close to the price I'd have to pay if I ordered an 07.
3. We're only talking about 15hp (5.2%) power increase.

Then Porsche either has to jack up the Boxster above the current 911TT $130k+ or bring the 911TT down to $70k and only jack the Boxster to $75k. Then all will be right in the universe.
