Porsche has announced a special edition new sportscar which will be available in limited numbers. Called the Porsche 911 Black Edition, the car comes with bespoke black and darkened cosmetic features.
The car is based on the entry-level Porsche 911 Carrera Coupe and Cabriolet and gets the same 3.6-litre flat six engine delivering 254kW of power. This model will not be about outright performance though, it’s more of a special edition created for collectors and for those who want a bit more exclusivity out of the standard 911.
On the outside, it features a black paint job, of course, and is garnished in 911 Turbo 19-inch darkened wheels. The inside is also treated to the ‘Black’ theme and gets a black steering wheel, specially painted black centre console and a Black Edition number plaque on the glove box lid.
Overall, it seems like rather timid limited edition compared to the Mercedes-Benz Black Series range. At least it won’t cost a packet over the standard models though. Prices will start at the same entry-level cost as the standard Porsche 911 Carrera Coupe and Cabriolet range – $223,000 and $245,300 respectively.
If exclusivity is a high priority to you, then you better be quick, only 1,911 of the Porsche 911 Black Editions will ever be made.
Deliveries are scheduled to begin in April this year.
