Following on from the ever-popular ‘black’ and ‘dark’ themes that have been introduced in the industry in the last few years, the 911 and Boxster Black Editions boost overall appeal, value, and street presence.

For the 911 Black Edition, available in coupe and convertible form, customers get 20-inch Turbo alloy wheels, LED headlights with Porsche Dynamic Light System Plus, parking sensors and a rear camera, a full leather interior with Black Edition logos, and special door sill guards.
