Back in early spring I took a look at a 2016 Porsche Cayman “Black Edition” that was basically a bunch of options packaged together and given a random name. It was certainly no coincidence as the 718 Cayman launched the next model year, and it is no coincidence the 2016 Porsche 911 Carrera “Black Edition” was launched just before the 991.2 generation. Like the Cayman, it is a collection of options and some “Black Edition” door sills. Again, there were no performance additions or even suspension upgrades. Who were they trying to fool?

For this “Black Edition,” you were given the Sport Chrono Package, the Sport Exhaust System, a power-operated sunroof, PASM Sport Suspension, LED headlights in black with the Porsche Dynamic Light System Plus, and some other things that don’t seem to add up. All the press kits say these cars came with 20″ Turbo wheels, but this one clearly has 20″ SportTechno wheels and that is confirmed via the spec sheet. I’m thinking Porsche just say “whatever” and started throwing random parts on these because none seem to follow what they are supposed to be optioned with.
As for this example with 5,700 miles, it carries a massive asking price of $100,000. The sticker on this one was $103,000. Ouch. Keep in mind this is a base 911 Carrera, not a Carrera S. I understand it is very low miles, but spending six figures on a base 991.1 is bonkers. Even with the fake special edition. Cool novelty, but an insane price.
