For the 2012 model year, the Porsche 911 Black Edition is available in both coupe and cabriolet (convertible) forms and also comes in rear-wheel-drive Carrera 4 and a Turbo all-wheel -drive variants. This Black Edition receives its power from a 2.6-liter flat six-cylinder engine that produces 345 horsepower (as seen in the standard Porsche 911 Carrera and Carrera S models). Top track speed for this coupe is around 180 mph, and it achieves zero-to-sixty in only 4.5 seconds. With the optional 7-Speed PDK, the Porsche achieves the same in only 4.1 seconds. The Black Edition comes in two "colors:" Solid Black and an optional Basalt Black Metallic. Exterior features include: painted-black four-piston monobloc brake calipers, black 19-inch Turbo II rims, along with stainless-steel sill plates containing black lettering.
The interior of the Porsche 911 carries the theme that's represented on its exterior. It has an overall dark theme, including a black rear console and SportDesign steering wheel, a black instrument panel, and this coupe's interior equipment package includes nearly all of the options you'll find on the other Porsche 911 coupes. This package 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. The starting MSRP for the coupe version of the Black Edition is $81,300, while the Cabriolet convertible has a starting MSRP of $91,300. Overall, the Black Edition is a fantastic choice for choosy drivers and collectors alike. Exactly 1911 Black Editions were constructed- a fourth of which were shipped to the United States, so if you're interested in this vehicle, you'll be facing some stiff competition. If you're looking for a very unique Porsche 911, this could certainly be the one for you.
