Meanwhile, the 2015 Porsche Boxster Black Edition uses a 2.7-liter flat engine that generates 265 hp (195 kW). When it comes to design, the Boxster Black Edition is offered with 20-inch Carrera Classic wheels, black soft top and rollover protection bar.

Moreover, the vehicle is fitted with bi-xenon headlights with Porsche Dynamic Light System (PDLS). The interior receives heated seats, two-zone air conditioning as well as the high-quality Sound Package Plus.

Exclusive editions of 2016 Porsche Boxster and 911 Carrera in classic color combination In elegant black: Porsche 911 Carrera and Boxster Black Editions

Porsche has created a special model of the 911 Carrera and Boxster: the Black Edition. The combination of black exterior and interior emphasizes the timeless, classy elegance of each sports car. As the name indicates, Black paint is standard, while Jet Black Metallic is available as an option. Standard equipment on the 911 Carrera and Boxster Black Edition models has been enhanced in regards to the wheels, headlights, and sound system while additional equipment has been included such as the Sport Design steering wheel, door sill guards with Black Edition logo, heated seats, auto dimming rear-view mirrors, and the headrests are embossed with the Porsche Crest.

The 911 Carrera Black Edition is based on the standard model with a 3.4 liter flat-six engine developing 350 hp. It is offered in coupé and convertible versions with rear-wheel or all-wheel drive. Standard features on the Black Edition include 20-inch 911 Turbo wheels, LED headlights with the Porsche Dynamic Light System Plus (PDLS+), as well as Park Assist at the front and rear with a reversing camera. The black interior promotes a sophisticated look. The driver and passenger sit on heated sports seats, and the standard Bose® Surround Sound System provides excellent sound quality.

The Boxster Black Edition is equally attractive. The mid-engine roadster is powered by the 2.7 liter flat-six engine with 265 hp. Its color concept remains consistent with the soft top and supplemental safety bar which are both finished in black. The wind deflector reduces undesirable turbulence when the soft top is down. 20-inch Carrera Classic wheels and the Bi-Xenon™ headlights with Porsche Dynamic Light System (PDLS) set distinctive highlights, while standard two-zone air conditioning and heated seats provide a higher level of comfort for both driver and passenger. The Porsche Communication Management system with navigation, the upgraded Sound Package Plus audio system and Park Assist for front and rear are also included as standard features on the Boxster Black Edition.

All five Black Edition models are now on sale in the United States and are set to arrive at dealers the end of July. Prices excluding the destination charge of $995 are:

Boxster Black Edition: $59,100
