The new Porsche Boxster S Black Edition will be on sale from March 2011. Only 987 will be available and prices start from £47,426.
The colour concept of the Porsche Boaster S Black Edition is consistent in every detail. The model lettering painted in black on the rear luggage compartment lid identifies the Black Edition as much as the embossed Black Edition model designation on the side of the fabric hood. The roll-over bars are painted in black, together with the rear side air intake grilles and the twin tailpipe of the exhaust system.
The 3.4 litre six cylinder engine is similar to that fitted to the Porsche Boxster S with direct fuel injection for greater power and efficiency. The car accelerates from 0-62 mph in 5.2 seconds, a tenth of a second faster than the Porsche Boxster S. This extra performance has not been achieved at the expense of fuel economy for the Boxster S Black Edition contents itself with as much fuel as the Porsche Boxster S at approximately 28.8 mpg Combined (NEDC).
The black theme of the exterior is continued inside the Porsche Boxster S Black Edition. The stainless steel door entry guards feature the "Black Edition" model lettering in black. The standard, three-spoke Sport Design steering wheel has a black leather rim. The trim strips of the dashboard and of the gear shift lever or PDK selector are painted in black. The dials on the instrument cluster are black, as are the seats with the Porsche emblem embossed in the headrests. A bespoke badge on the glove compartment lid further identifies each Black Edition.
