New Porsche 911 Black Edition

Porsche releases a very stylish special edition of its standard 3.6-litre 911 Carrera

By Henry Catchpole 25th January 2011

Any colour as long as it’s… This latest special edition 911 is based on the standard 341bhp, 3.6-litre Carrera Coupe or Cabriolet. It is painted in plain black as standard or Basalt Black metallic as an option. The wheels are 19-inch Turbo II items, also painted in glossy black. On the stainless steel door sills are the words ‘Black Edition’, while inside, the interior is bright green. Only kidding. As well as black leather owners get a SportDesign steering wheel and a badge on the glove box reminding them that it is one of a limited production run of just 1911. A BOSE Surround-Sound system is also fitted as standard.

The Black Edition costs £67,270 for the coupe and £74,958 for the cabriolet. While it looks very nice, we can’t help but feel it’s little more than a run-out model to boost sales before the next generation 911 is unveiled later this year.
