Alongside the release of the Porsche 911 Carrera Black Edition, the covers have also been taken off the Porsche Boxster Black Edition. Like the special variant of the 911 Carrera, the Boxster Black Edition includes a number of bespoke features.
For starters, the car is evidently painted in gloss black and also adopts a black interior combining a selection of leather wrapped components. Elsewhere, the Boxster Black Edition comes fitted with 20-inch Carrera Classic wheels while the German marque’s bi-xenon headlights have also been installed alongside the Porsche Dynamic Light System.
Other elements include Porsche Communication Management with a navigation module and “mobile phone preparation module”, Park Assist front and rear, a rain sensor, automatically dimming mirrors, cruise control and a Sport Design steering wheel. Elsewhere, the Black Edition includes all the standard parts found on every Boxster like a 7-inch colour touchscreen, auto stop/start, tyres pressure monitoring, Porsche Stability Management and remote control roof operation.
Beneath the skin, the Boxster Black Edition is of course powered by a 2.7-litre flat six engine with 265 hp on tap.
“Exclusive special roadster with added features
Porsche is inviting open-top driving enthusiasts the chance to sprint into summer behind the wheel of a new special series of the Boxster: the Black Edition.
The combination of black paintwork and black partial-leather interior emphasises the timeless elegance of the mid-engine design. Standard equipment on the Boxster Edition models includes Porsche Communication Management (PCM) with navigation module and mobile phone preparation module, Park Assist front and rear, automatically dimming rear-view mirrors, rain sensor, cruise control and Sport Design steering wheel.
The two-seater roadster is powered by an emotive 2.7-litre flat-six engine offering 265 hp (195 kW), which is mid-mounted in the chassis for optimal driving dynamics and responsiveness.
The colour concept remains consistent with the soft top and roll-over protection bar also finished in black. And the standard wind deflector helps to limit turbulence when the electrically-operated soft top is lowered.
The 20-inch Carrera Classic wheels and bi-Xenon headlights with Porsche Dynamic Light System (PDLS) are further distinctive highlights. The driver and passenger can enjoy a higher level of personal comfort with the two-zone climate control and heated seats with the Porsche Crest embossed on the head restraints – perfect for open-topped motoring all year round. Also ensuring entertainment in all weathers, the sound system in the Boxster Black Edition is the high-quality Sound Package Plus.
