Porsche 911 Black Edition: A Not-So-Special, Special Edition

Porsche continues to roll out new special edition versions of its iconic 911 model, the latest being the new 911 Black Edition. Following the 911 Speedster and Carrera GTS, this not-so-special, special edition doesn't get the wider Carrera 4 body or the more powerful 408-hp engine. Nope, it's just a standard fare 345-hp model with black paint. Or to be more specific, your choice of two shades of black: Solid Black or Basalt Black Metallic. (Who said German's were dull?)

OK, so there's a little more to the package than that, like 19-inch Turbo II two-colored wheels and black-painted brake calipers. Inside there's a sport steering wheel, with a black instrument cluster and much of the rest of the cabin is blacked-out in contrast to the aluminum trim. The rear center console even gets paint-matched to the exterior of the car while an upgraded Bose sound system is included. And of course, there's 'Black Edition' lettering on the door sill, plus a Black Edition badge indicating what number of the 1,911 versions yours is.

Apart from the lack of creativity, the Black Edition is a classy looking package and it's actually a 'bargain' says Porsche, priced $6,000 less than a comparably equipped 911. Plus, you still get the 911′s amazing driving experience and a 0-60 mph time of 4.3 seconds when equipped with a 7-speed PDK transmission and the Sport Chrono Package.
