The guys at Porsche Design are well known for their approach on reshaping usual things in a beautiful manner, but this time they went to a whole new level.
They quite literally took an exhaust from a Porsche 911 GT3 and made it a 2.1 virtual surround sound system and not only that, but it’s full of useful gizmos that we like in todays society, like Bluetooth radio technology so you can play music from you phone and not be limited by any cords.
It also has a lot of fancy named things like: DTS TruSurround, Dolby digital decoder, aptX technology or LipSync, which I have no idea what they do, but I’m happy they are there to make everything better and things that are not rocket science like an LED display or a remote control.
Sadly it comes at the hefty price of 2900€, which is definitely not cheap for such a piece of electronic component, but just look at the bare metal with the exposed welding, I mean they didn’t even took the time to paint it or anything, they just took it from a 911 GT3, slammed it on a stand and ran a couple of speakers and circuits trough it so your inner car enthusiast will just fall in love with it.
Porsche Design describes it as: “The 911 Soundbar takes the functions of the original components and turns them on their head. The rear silencer and twin exhaust now resonate sound. The result: a deeper, measurably louder audio experience with a higher maximum volume. In short: more power.”
I didn’t have the chance to hear it, but I’d definitely break the silence for the first time with some 911 GT3 roars.
PS: If by pure luck anybody that works at Porsche Design reads this know that my inner audiophile and car fanatic are dying to hear it! Just hit me up on Twitter @alexandrei64
Also CT, just make something like a preview so I won’t screw up how posts like this look.
