Here’s something strange; Porsche’s new soundbar is made from an original 922 GT3 exhaust system. And despite the fact that it looks junkyard-worthy, the 911 Soundbar 2.0 Pro costs $12,000 and is surprisingly feature-rich.
The 911 Soundbar 2.0 Pro features Dolby Atmos compatibility and 2.1.2 Virtual Surround Sound software. It outputs audio at 300 watts, connects to TVs via 4K-compatible HDMI ARC ports, and offers wireless connectivity options like Bluetooth 5.0, AirPlay 2, and Chromecast.
The soundbar’s selling point is, of course, its outrageous design. I’m not sure if this design will appeal to anyone but the biggest car nerds as it looks like a bunch of junk. (You can’t normally see the complete exhaust system of the Porsche 992 GT3, apart from the tailpipes. That’s why the tailpipes are the only part of this speaker with a nice gunmetal finish.)
Porsche describes the 911 Soundbar 2.0 Pro as a “limited edition” item, probably because it’s niche and uses a real exhaust system. That means it is technically a continuation of the original 911 soundbar that uses a similar design. (Interestingly, you can pair multiple Porsche soundbars together.)
You can pick up the 911 Soundbar 2.0 Pro today for $12,000. Just keep in mind that similar speakers (without the automatic exhaust system) cost a lot less.
