Following the announcement of the Porsche 911 Black Edition, Porsche followed up with the Boxster S Black Edition, which will also get a limited run of 987 (Porsche’s internal code for the Boxster) cars with the black treatment. Sticking to the black theme, all cars will be available in one color combination-black exterior, interior, and top, along with 19″ black painted wheels. Even the roll hoops and exhaust tips are painted black. The Black Edition Boxster sports black-faced gauges, and a special interior highlighted with aluminum and stainless steel accents.
While we griped that the 911 Black Edition was simply cosmetic, Porsche did add some muscle to the Boxster S Black Edition. The 3.4L boxer six-cylinder is rated at 320hp, a ten horsepower increase. Optioned with Porsche’s PDK transmission and Sport Chrono package, this limited edition Boxster will reach 60mph in 4.6 seconds, with a top speed of 170 mph. The Boxster S Black Edition starts at $65,200USD, and with normally optional packages thrown in as standard, this represents a $3,200 savings over a similarly equipped Boxster S.
