2016 Porsche 911 Carrera & Boxster Black Editions Unveiled

The 2016 Porsche 911 Carrera and Boxster have turned to the dark side. The German automaker has announced that the two sports cars will soon be available as specially equipped Black Edition models, which have been completely blacked-out for an even more exclusive appearance.

As you'd probably expect, black is the only exterior paint color offered, though Jet Black Metallic can be had for those who want a little bit of sparkle. The Black Edition treatment also means the sports cars get extra goodies as standard, including nicer wheels, headlights, and a better sound system. Other additions include a sport steering wheel design, door sill guards with the Black Edition logo, heated seats, auto-dimming rear-view mirrors, and headrests embossed with the Porsche logo.

Available in coupe and convertible forms, in rear- or all-wheel drive, the 911 Carrera Black Edition adds dynamic LED headlamps, 20-inch Turbo wheels, and navigation. The front sport seats come heated, and passengers can enjoy some tunes using the Bose surround-sound system. Park assist, rain-sensing wipers, and cruise control also come standard. The engine remains untouched, which means the base 3.4-liter flat-six engine still puts out 350 hp.

As for the 2016 Boxster Black Edition, the sports car gets LED headlamps, 20-inch Carrera Classic wheels, heated seats, dual-zone climate control, and an upgraded sound system. Unlike the 2012 Boxster S Black Edition that boosted the 3.4-liter flat-six’s engine up by 10 horses, this blacked-out Boxster gets the same base 265-hp 2.7-liter boxer as the standard car.

Customers can slip into the darkness beginning in July, when the Black Edition models are scheduled to arrive in dealerships. Porsche has released pricing info, with the Boxster Black Edition starting at $60,095; the 911 Carrera at $89,795; the Carrera 4 at $95,795; the 911 Cabriolet at $99,495; and the Carrera 4 Cabriolet at $105,595. All prices include a $995 destination charge.
