Porsche Boxster S Black Edition

Porsche-Boxster_S_Black_Edition_2011_800x600_wallpaper_01.jpg Porsche-Boxster_S_Black_Edition_2011_800x600_wallpaper_02.jpg

The Porsche Boxster S Black Edition combines the timeless appeal of the classic open-roofed roadster with a powerful engine and dramatic styling. Just 987 will be available worldwide, each one finished in black and with a range of special features that accentuate the driving dynamics and muscular appearance of the two-seater sportscar.
As is typical of a Porsche sportscar, at the heart of the Porsche Boxster S Black Edition beats a flat-six 'boxer' engine. Mounted in front of the rear axle behind the seats, the 3.4-litre six-cylinder engine is similar to that fitted to the Boxster S, with direct fuel injection for greater power and efficiency. In the Black Edition its output is 320 hp - 10 hp more than in the Boxster S. The revised engine reaches its rated power at 7,200 rpm, the Boxster S power pack at 6,400 rpm. Peak torque of 370 Nm - boosted by 10 Newton metres - is available at 4,750 rpm.
This increase in output and power equals more dynamics, and the Porsche Boxster S Black Edition underpins its leading position with a superior driving performance. With its standard six-speed manual transmission, it accelerates from 0-62 mph in 5.2 seconds, a tenth of a second faster than the Boxster S. This extra performance has not been achieved at the expense of fuel economy, however, for the Porsche Boxster S Black Edition contents itself with as much fuel as the Boxster S: 28.8 mpg Combined (NEDC).

The Porsche Boxster S Black Edition goes on sale in the UK and Ireland from March 2011 and is priced from 47,426. Included in the purchase price is the invitation for customers to explore the dynamic attributes of their Boxster and develop their own skills behind the wheel, courtesy of a Driving Experience Programme at the Porsche Experience Centre at Silverstone.

Could you buy a black one before? A tenth of a second quicker to 60mph.. I trust there is not a whopping premium just because its black.

So they've added 10 horsepower and achieved a tenth quicker acceleration? To summarize then, this is a collectible Boxster that looks and drives just like .... every other boxster. The collectible car for people that can't afford actual collectible cars lol.

Somehow I get the thought that AMG isn't very happy right now.

LOL! Porsche wins the title for most original marketing team. I don't think Benz should be too worried though, because when Mercedes does a black series car, at least they give the vehicle a race car makeover. They don't just slap on a cold air intake for some puny power gains, paint the vehicle after the name, charge X amount more dollars for it and call it a day.

I think the Cayman S is probably better for resale, CAP valuation is slighly higher.
