Porsche Boxster details:
As is typical of a Porsche sportscar, at the heart of the Porsche Boxster S Black Edition beats a flat-six 'boxer' motor. Mounted in front of the back axle behind the seatings, the 3. 4-litre six-cylinder motor is alike to that fitted to the Porsche Boxster S, with direct fuel injection for greater performance and efficiency. In the Black Edition its output is 320 hp - 10 hp more than in the Porsche Boxster S. The updated motor reaches its rated performance at 7200, rpm, the Porsche Boxster S performance pack at 6400, rpm. Peak torque of 370 Nm - boosted by 10 Newton metres - is available at 4750, rpm.
This increase in output and performance equals more dynamics, and the Porsche Boxster S Black Edition underpins its leading position with a superior driving performance. With its traditional six-speed manual transmission, it accelerates from 0-62 mph in 5. 2 seconds, a tenth of a second faster than the Porsche Boxster S. This extra performance has not been achieved at the expense of fuel efficiency, however, for the Porsche Boxster S Black Edition contents itself with as much fuel as the Porsche Boxster S: 28. 8 mpg Combined (NEDC).
