Let’s see if we can cancel out all this “technical jargon” noise to talk about Porsche 911 Soundbar, in simple English. The sound bar is Porsche Design’s version of a very high-end sound system, made by converting the original rear silencer and twin exhaust system of a Porsche 911 GT3. This is amazing work, the same components used to keep the car quiet is now used to create a hell of a noise.
While introducing the 911 Soundbar, the automaker likened the performance of the car to a symphony, not just numbers. That piece of music looks like this – zero to 100 in 3.5, up to 9,000 rpm and 315 km/h top speed. And the numbers for the sound system are equally impressive. It comes equipped with a 2.1 virtual surround system and a 200-watt output. With its Bluetooth wireless connectivity, playing audio from handheld devices as well as others is an easy a task. Other features include lossless transmission, bass and treble control, DG recorder, LED display, LipSync function, and remote control. Additional input available via analog and digital connections.
I don’t know about you, but this to me looks a lot like the Espresso Veloce coffee machine. The 911 Soundbar measures about 29”L x 11”W x 12.6H” and weighs 40 lbs. No Porsche comes without a serious price tag, this will cost you €2,900 that is about $3,200. The good news is, for a diehard Porsche fan without deep pockets for the real thing, this might be the closest one get to the brand. Just like the car you cannot get this on a whim, there is already a month-long pre-order waitlist.
