Porsche Design has developed a “911 Soundbar” that takes inspiration from the dual exhaust system fitted on the 911 GT3.
Created for the man who has everything, the 200-watt, 2.1 audio system was converted from the original rear silencer and dual exhaust of the 911 GT3 and benefits from DTS TruSurround virtual surround signal processing. Porsche Design says the car-derived parts have enabled a deeper and louder sound experience and you will be able to wirelessly link the system to a device via a Bluetooth connection.
The 2.1 audio system incorporates an LED display mounted in the center and has a Dolby digital decoder for crystal clear sound. It comes bundled with a remote from where the user can control the volume, bass, and switch between the available inputs. Speaking of which, the 911 Soundbar has analog, optical, and coaxial inputs, along with a subwoofer output.
Despite a hefty price tag of €2,900 (approximately $4,300 CAD at current exchange rates), Porsche Design points out the product is in high demand which is why new orders will be delivered from March.
Porsche Design is no stranger to premium products as aside from its lineup of BlackBerry smartphones, the company also has other high-end items, like watches, sunglasses, clothes, and shoes. A recent example that comes to mind is the limited edition solid gold P‘3135 fountain pen launched last year for a cool €25,000 (approximately $37,147 CAD).
