Porsche is offering a special edition based on the 345 hp Carrera with a 3.6 litre engine – the 911 Black Edition. Available as a Coupé or Cabriolet, it features a particularly comprehensive equipment package. The 911 Black Edition is limited to 1,911 units. In the GCC region, the basic retail price for the 911 Black Edition is 84,920 USD for the Coupé and 95,163 USD for the Cabriolet. Whilst being
available for order as of now, the first models are set to arrive in the Middle East and Africa region in April 2011.
The 911 Black Edition is painted in plain black as standard, with Basalt Black Metallic available as an option. The Cabriolet hood is made of black cloth. With the Black Edition, the colour highlights are provided by the 19 inch 911 Turbo II bi-colour wheels, their diachronic effect ideally complementing the discreet elegance of the exterior colour. In addition, the rims provide an unobstructed view of the brakes, naturally with black, four-piston aluminium monobloc fixed callipers.
The interior continues the exterior colour scheme. Already equipped as standard with high-quality partial leather seats, the 911 Black Edition can of course be upgraded with the option of an additional leather interior. Also included in the series version is a sports design steering wheel. The instrument cluster naturally remains in black.
An acoustic highlight of the 911 Black Edition’s enhanced equipment is the Bose Surround Sound-System, fitted as standard. Coupé and Cabriolet are equipped with the Porsche Communication Management (PCM). The GPS navigation module comes as standard in the 911 Black Edition.
Like the rest of the 911 range, the 911 Black Edition's equipment package also includes parking assistant, cruise control, universal audio interface, automatic anti-dazzle interior and exterior mirrors and a rain sensor. The car though available in the Middle East is not likely to make its way to India, though we surely look forward to such a car here.
