Do you like the idea of a Black Edition Porsche convertible, but don't have the $91,300 entry price for the 911 Black Edition cabriolet? Then how does $65,200 sound for the same treatment on a Boxster S?
Unlike the 911 Black Editions, the Boxster S Black Edition gets a small performance boost, with 10 additional horsepower available from the 3.4-liter flat six. Otherwise, it's mostly the same story as the 911 Black Editions. The Boxster S Black Edition comes only in solid black, with the monochrome treatment extending to the wheels, the covers for the rollbars, side air intake grilles, and even the twin tailpipes and badge. The interior is also black, with aluminum and stainless steel accents.
Porsche combines several popular option packages to the Black Edition as well, bundling the Convenience Package -- xenon headlights, a wind deflector, auto-dimming mirrors, and automatic climate control -- and an infotainment package that includes touch screen navigation, Bose surround sound and XM satellite radio. The Black Edition represents a $3,200 savings over buying the options separately.
