The Porsche Boxster S Black Edition is a limited edition version
of the Boxster S. All 987 examples feature the same black on
black color scheme; and the model also nicely complements the
911 Black Edition model.
The 'Boxster S' lettering painted in black on the rear luggage
compartment lid identifies the model as does the embossed Black
Edition logo on the side of the fabric hood. The roll-over bars
are painted in black, together with the rear side air intake
grilles and the twin tailpipe of the exhaust system.
Inside the colorless theme continues with stainless steel door
entry guards featuring the "Black Edition" logo. The
standard, three-spoke Sport Design steering wheel has a black
leather rim. The trim strips of the dashboard and of the gear
shift lever or PDK selector are painted in black. The dials
on the instrument cluster are black, as are the partial leather
sports seats. Even the windows are painted black... Wait, sorry,
no they're still clear.
Powering the Porsche Boxster S Black Edition is a 3.4 litre
flat-six engine which produces 320 hp @ 7,200 rpm and 370 Nm
of torque @ 4,750 rpm. That's a 10 hp improvement over the standard
Boxster S, enough to reduce the 0-62 mph (100km/h) sprint by
1/10th of a second to 5.2 seconds when equipped with the standard
six-speed manual. When the 7-speed PDK dual-clutch transmission
is fitted the 0-62 mph time drops to 5.1 seconds. If the Sports
Chrono Package Plus with launch control option is also added
then its even quicker, taking just 4.9 seconds to reach 62 mph.
Comfort and convenience is also enhanced for the Boxster S Black
Edition with standard features including anti-dazzle interior
and exterior mirrors with integrated rain sensor, cruise control
and a climate control system. The Porsche Communication Management
(PCM) including satellite navigation module is also standard.
In addition, the universal audio interface offering MP3 player
compatibility and Bluetooth mobile phone preparation are also
standard. The Sound Package Plus is standard, and Bi-Xenon headlamps
with dynamic cornering lights and LED daytime running lights
help light up dark roads.
As an option, the Boxster S Black Edition can be customised
even further with other options. Porsche Ceramic Composite Brakes
(PCCB) are an option, as well as the Porsche Active Suspension
Management (PASM) and the adaptive sports seats with memory
