German car maker Porsche has revealed the Boxster S Black Edition, which will be available to only 987 lucky customers. The tasty looking car not only comes with a black body but also black convertible top and 19-inch Spyder wheels.

AutoGuide is reporting that it doesn’t end there with the air intake, roll bars, and the twin exhaust pipes all get blacked out. The direct-injected 3.4 litre flat six engine gets an extra 10hp giving a 0-60 time of 4.8 seconds, or if you have the Sport Chrono package that comes down to 4.6 seconds.

The interior is unsurprisingly all black except the odd bit of aluminum and stainless steel. There are some extra’s beside the Porsche logos, you get notification which of the 987 units your car is. Other options include the Convenience Package which has auto dimming mirrors, rain sensing wipers, automatic climate control, and Bi-Xenon headlights.

Costing $65,200 which is $7,000 more than the standard Boxster S, but because of the equipment that comes with it means a saving of $3,200 according to Porsche. The Wall Street Journal is reporting that the German car maker has increased its US sales by 34 percent in the year to January. Selling 2,400 vehicles, marketing Chief Bernhard Maier said the sales were driven by the Cayenne and Panamera.

    This car looks so awesome. Porsche has been one of the biggest names in Car industry. Inspite of high demands for Asian cars (Japan, Korea etc) increased due to it's good quality and affordable prices, Porsche has managed to make waves even until now.
