...for federal cars, the 2006 exige was naturally-aspirated, while the 2007-present exige S featured an intercooled supercharger tuned to 220, 240, or 260 brake horsepower...

At least one Elise was supercharged by the factory in 2006 for testing. It was for sale at Park Place not to long ago if I remember right.

An Exige was available all years in N/A trim, correct? I was just under the impression that not many were ordered that way.

In the US I believe only the Exige S was available from 2007.

As I have never seen a non S Exige that wasn't 2006. Though the UK might be different.

Supercharger

I have a dealer trying to sell me a 06 Elise and said it has a factory supercharger? Is this possible

...that's not necessarily misleading - lotus did just make their aftermarket factory supercharger available this winter...
