Porsche Boxster S Black Edition

The 2011 Porsche Boxster S Black Edition represents a new luxurious model which was limited to 987 cars and completes the Boxster line in addition to the sporty Boxster Spyder. Featuring an attractive price, this limited edition provides the customers with exclusive special options and standard equipment. Its colour is consistent in every detail, from the model lettering painted in black on the rear luggage compartment lid to the roll-over bars painted in black, too. The colour of the interior is in perfect harmony with the exterior, as the "Black Edition" model lettering in black is to be found on the stainless steel door entry guards. The dials on the instrument cluster are black as are the partial leather seats with the Porsche emblem embossed in the headrests, while customers can enjoy the possibility of going for a black leather interior. Equipment packages, such as the otherwise optional "Comfort", "Infotainment", and "Design" fit the Boxster S Black Edition, as standard, together with the Porsche Communication Management (PCM) including navigation module. An impressive interior sound experience was possible due to the Sound Package Plus, while the Porsche Ceramic Composite Brake remains an option, as well as the Porsche Active Suspension Management. Clear lines suggesting a sporty appeal describe the chassis of the Porsche Boxster S Black Edition and its driving dynamics was improved by the tyres size 235/35 ZR 19 front and 265/35 ZR 19 rear. The car model is powered by a 3.4-liter six-cylinder engine with direct fuel injection, delivering 320 hp and 370 Nm, connected to a standard six-speed manual transmission, reaching a 0-100 km/h sprint in 5.2 seconds and a maximum speed of 276 km/h. A seven-speed Doppelkupplungsgetriebe (PDK) can be applied if the driver wishes to raise efficiency and dynamics even further, thus reducing the 0-100 km/h acceleration to 5.1 seconds and the top speed will be also shortened to 274 km/h.
