Following on the heels of the recently announced 911 Black Edition, Porsche is introducing a new, luxuriously equipped special edition model to dealerships this spring.
The Boxster S Black Edition features a 10-hp power boost and a long list of standard equipment at a very attractive price.
This new mid-engine sports car is only available in solid black and features a monochrome treatment with a black body, black convertible top, and black-painted 19-inch Boxster Spyder design wheels.
As with the 911 Black Edition, the extra functional and visual upgrades of the Boxster S Black Edition come at a very reasonable price of $74,400.
Without accounting for the Black Edition’s enhanced power output, a comparable Boxster S would cost over $3,500 more.
A 3.4-litre six-cylinder engine with direct fuel injection, mounted in front of the rear axle, produces 320 hp—10 more than in the Boxster S—while also delivering excellent fuel economy, particularly when coupled with the seven-speed Porsche Doppelkupplungsgetriebe (PDK) transmission.
Fitted with PDK, the Black Edition of the Boxster S will accelerate from 0-100 km/h in 5.1 seconds and reaches a top track speed of 274 km/h.
An optional Sport Chrono package special editon Porshe further reduces acceleration times with a launch control function and provides more-aggressive Sport and Sport Plus shift strategies.
