 Pros The 2012 Porsche 911 Black Edition coupe is a very unique vehicle with a ton of style and a sleek, sexy look. If you're looking for a vehicle like very few others own, this could be the one for you.

 Pros The Porsche 911 Black Edition showcases a plethora of standard features, such as an equipment package that includes a GPS-based navigation system, a Porsche Communication Management system that features touchscreen operation, XM Satellite Radio, and NavTraffic . Porsche even claims that the Black Edition coupe's setup will save you about $6,000 over a similarly-equipped standard 911 Carrera.

 Pros Safety features are comprehensive and include: stability control, anti-lock brakes, several different types of airbags, traction control, seatbelt pretensioners, and an excellent security system that detects unwanted intruders and that will prevent the vehicle from starting if the vehicle's correct key is not used.

 Pros The Black Edition has a very competitive price with a starting MSRP of $81,300. This is especially reasonable when compared with several of the other, pricier Porsche 911 Carrera models and when you consider that this Porsche 911 coupe comes with more standard technology features.

 Pros Several other sporty features yet to be mentioned, such painted-black four-piston monobloc brake calipers, black 19-inch Turbo II rims, and stainless-steel sill plates containing black lettering, as well as a black rear console and SportDesign steering wheel really take this Porsche 911 to another level of design.

 Cons If you don't like the color black, well, the 2012 Porsche 911 Black Edition coupe certainly isn't the car for you. From its interior all the way around its exterior, it is, in a word, Black.

 Cons Like many other sports cars, the Porsche 911 Black Edition doesn't have the best fuel economy ratings. However, it doesn't have the worst either. It achieves 18 mpg in the city and 25 mpg on the highway.
