Elegant in Black: Porsche Boxster and 911 Carrera Black Edition Models

Exclusive special sports car series with added features

MISSISSAUGA, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - May 19, 2015) - Porsche has created a special series of the 911 Carrera and Boxster: the Black Edition. The combination of black paintwork and black interior emphasizes the timeless, upscale elegance of the sports car. The standard equipment on the Black Edition models of the 911 Carrera and Boxster includes 20" alloy wheels, automatically dimming rear-view mirrors, rain sensor, and Sport Design steering wheel.

The 911 Carrera Black Edition is based on the Carrera model with a 3.4 litre flat engine developing 350 hp. It is offered as coupé and convertible versions with rear-wheel or all-wheel drive. The special edition runs on 20-inch 911 Turbo wheels and the LED headlights including the Porsche Dynamic Light System Plus (PDLS+) are part of the standard equipment. The black interior simply looks sophisticated. The driver and passenger enjoy heated sports seats, and the standard Bose® Surround Sound System provides excellent sound quality. Moreover, the front and rear Park Assist with back-up camera make the operation of the 911 special edition effortless.

The Boxster Black Edition is certainly no less attractive. The mid-engine roadster is powered by the 2.7 litre flat engine with 265 hp. The colour concept remains consistent when it comes to the soft top and rollover protection bar, which are both in black. The wind deflector helps to avoid undesirable turbulence when the soft top is down. The 20-inch Carrera Classic wheels and the bi-xenon headlights with Porsche Dynamic Light System (PDLS) are distinctive highlights. The driver and passenger can enjoy a higher level of personal comfort with the two-zone air conditioning and heated seats. The Porsche Communication Management (PCM) with navigation module and Sound Package Plus are also proposed in the Boxster Black Edition.

All five Black Edition models go on sale in Canada in July with the following starting prices:

  • 2016 Boxster Black Edition: $67,400
  • 2016 911 Carrera Black Edition: $101,300
  • 2016 911 Carrera Cabriolet Black Edition: $112,400
  • 2016 911 Carrera 4 Black Edition: $108,200
  • 2016 911 Carrera 4 Cabriolet Black Edition: $119,300
