QUOTE
There were Two models of the 260Z sold in the U.S. The first half had lower power due to Emissions regulations. A more powerful version was available during the second half of production destined to the U.S. market. Some regard the first half of 260Z's as the least desirable of the two models, because of the reduced performance. This has resulted in lower prices on average for the early model 260Z.[citation needed]

The 260Z also claimed a few improvements over the 240Z. The climate controls were more sensibly laid out and easier to work. There was additional stiffness in the chassis due to a redesign of the chassis rails which were larger and extended further back than in the 240Z. The American model also featured heavier, safer, impact-absorbing bumpers.

Cosmetic changes included a redesigned dashboard and console, seat trim, and door panels for the interior, as well as redesigned rear tail lights and the front blinkers were relocated to inside the grill.

All of your pictures are of modified ones...

After the 240, I'm not sure the 260 was really cool. Neutral.

I'm not sure the difference between the 240, 260, and 280... I hear a lot more about the 240Z and 280Z though. Will refrain from voting until then.

I'm guessing that it's just an improvement on the 240z and the 280z is the next generation of this. That assumption being made. It's an ok car, for some reason I just can't help but think, "Why not just get a 280z or 1st gen 300zx?" Neutral.

I think it was a 2.4 liter straight six in the 240 and a 2.6 in the 260z. Could be wrong though.
