2011 Porsche Boxster S Black Edition

By luanpa in | February 3, 2011 | (2) Comments

Porsche is now offering the Black Edition treatment for the Boxter S, which will be limited to 987 units across the world, and which will go on sale in around two months.

Exterior tweaks include black paint, a black set of the Boxster Spyder’s lightweight 19in alloys, black ‘Boxster S’ lettering on the rear luggage compartment lid, ‘Black Edition’ script on the black fabric hood, plus black roll bars, black air intakes, and black exhaust pipes.

The same monochrome look from its 911 sibling dominates the interior.The seats—available either as cloth with leather accents or fully wrapped in cowhide—are all black, as are the instruments and the trim on the dashboard and center console.A badge on the glovebox lets you know which of the 987 cars you’ve bought, while sat-nav, Bluetooth, an upgraded stereo and bi-xenon lamps are standard.

As is typical of a Porsche sportscar, at the heart of the Porsche Boxster S Black Edition beats a flat-six ‘boxer’ engine.Mounted in front of the rear axle behind the seats, the 3.4-litre six-cylinder engine is similar to that fitted to the Boxster S , with direct fuel injection for greater power and efficiency.In the Black Edition its output is 320 hp – 10 hp more than in the Boxster S. The revised engine reaches its rated power at 7,200 rpm, the Boxster S power pack at 6,400 rpm.Peak torque of 370 Nm – boosted by 10 Newton metres – is available at 4,750 rpm.

With its standard six-speed manual transmission, it accelerates from 0-62 mph in 5.2 seconds, a tenth of a second faster than the Boxster S. This extra performance has not been achieved at the expense of fuel economy, however, for the Porsche Boxster S Black Edition contents itself with as much fuel as the Boxster S: 28.8 mpg Combined (NEDC).

The Porsche Boxster S Black Edition goes on sale in the UK and Ireland from March 2011 and is priced from £47,426.Included in the purchase price is the invitation for customers to explore the dynamic attributes of their Boxster and develop their own skills behind the wheel, courtesy of a Driving Experience Programme at the Porsche Experience Centre at Silverstone.

    The automaker just announced the 2012 Boxster S Black Edition which wears a color scheme that is more than appropriate for its name..As is the case with the the Black Edition is available only with black paint and a black interior albeit owners won t have the freedom to opt for a metallic black exterior hue. The only break from the monochromatic paint scheme are the wheels the 19-inch units borrowed from the Boxster Spyder receive a polished aluminum finish and black accents..Inside buyers can predictably select any interior color they desire so long as it s black.
