2016 Porsche 911 Carrera Black Edition

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.

    It’s like, how much more black could this be? And the answer is none. None more black.

    As a follow up to this post, it should be known that this car was sold for the asking price four days after it was listed. The Black Edition cars–which are numbered models–are very appealing and when you consider what a new base 911 costs today with no equipment, this car at a selling price just under $100,000 makes a lot of sense, especially to someone who wants one of the last naturally aspirated Porsches available. Also, consider the not to mention that this particular car had exceptionally low mileage and was a one-owner vehicle.

    I’m amazed that this sold for asking price. I don’t get it. If black on black is your thing, there is a 991.1 4S with under 10K miles that has been for sale for the better part of a year for 96K (car is in Illinois). I’d take a 4S any day of the week to a base Carrera (even if it is a “special edition”), especially for less money. If you prefer rear wheel drive, you can get a Carrera S with 10K miles for 90K all day long. Both of these also have a naturally aspirated engine as well. When I bought my 991.1S, I tested both – there was no comparison between the base motor and the 3.8.
