Porsche gets dark with special 911 Black Edition

Porsche has revealed its new 911 Black Edition, ahead of its official debut in April.

Based on the standard 911 Carrera the Black Edition is available in coupe or convertible form and comes in a range of two colours – both of them black.  A plain black exterior is standard and basalt black metallic is optional. There’s also black brake calipers, and 19-inch bi-color wheels taken from the 911 Turbo.

The interior is well appointed with partial leather seats, a sport steering wheel, aluminum look trim, a painted center console, and Black Edition door entry kick plates. Other upgrades include a Bose audio system, Porsche Communication Management (with navigation), parking assistant, cruise control, automatic dimming mirrors, and rain-sensing wipers.

Power comes from Porsche’s naturally-aspirated 3.6-liter flat-six engine with 254 kW and 390 Nm of torque. The six-pot is mated to a six-speed manual transmission allowing the coupe to accelerate from 0-100 km/h (62 mph) in 4.9 seconds while the convertible takes 5.1 seconds. The top speed for both body styles is 289 km/h.

Production is limited to 1,911 units and Porsche says the package represents savings of thousands over equipping the standard 911 with the same extras.

German pricing starts at €85,538 for the coupe / €96,843 for the convertible.
