Porsche has revealed its Black edition Boxster S, which the company is showcasing at the Geneva motor show.

Limited to 987 examples, the S’s 3.4-litre flat-six engine gets a 10bhp boost to 316bhp and 7lb ft hike in torque to 273lb ft over the standard model. That equates to a sprint to 60mph time of 5.2 seconds, a tenth of a second faster than the Boxster S.

As the name suggests, each model is finished in black inside and out with black-rimmed steering wheel, black touches to the dashboard and instrument cluster as well as black roll-over bars, side air intake grilles and twin exhaust pipes.
