Porsche has revealed Black Editions of the 911 Carrera and Boxster models. As the name implies, Black paint is standard, while Jet Black Metallic is available as an option. Standard features on the 911 Black Edition models include 20-inch 911 Turbo wheels, LED headlights with the Porsche Dynamic Light System Plus (PDLS+), as well as Park Assist at the front and rear with a reversing camera.
Additional equipment includes a Sport Design steering wheel, door sill guards with Black Edition logo, heated seats, auto dimming rear-view mirrors, and headrests embossed with the Porsche Crest. The all-black interiors feature a standard Bose Surround Sound System. The 911 Carrera Black Edition is based on the standard model with a 3.4 liter flat-six engine developing 350 hp. It is offered in coupé and convertible versions with rear-wheel or all-wheel drive.
The Boxster Black Edition is powered by the 2.7 liter flat-six engine with 265 hp. Its color concept remains consistent with the soft top and supplemental safety bar which are both finished in black. The wind deflector reduces undesirable turbulence when the soft top is down.
Equipment includes 20-inch Carrera Classic wheelbase, Bi-Xenon headlights with Porsche Dynamic Light System (PDLS), and Porsche Communication Management system with navigation. An upgraded Sound Package Plus audio system and Park Assist for front and rear are also included as standard features on the Boxster Black Edition.
