Porsche’s New Speaker Sounds Almost as Good as a Flat-Six Engine, Almost

Looks and power inspired by the tailpipe of a 911 GT3

If you’ve ever seen a Porsche 911 GT3, you’ve likely heard its rumbling exhaust and peeped its tailpipe cover  — the 200-MPH sports car was probably zipping past ya.

To provide a more tangible way for gearheads to experience that power, Porsche Design — which already offers an impressive range of non-car offerings — created the Bluetooth 911 Speaker

Made from high-quality aluminium housing, the 60-watt 911 Speaker almost perfectly replicates the 911 GT3’s high-gloss black tailpipe. Blessed with a battery life of 24 hours, the speaker can be paired with a second model for stereo sound and has a 32-foot range.

As sleek as the speaker looks, Porsche says it sounds even better and claims its audio gear as an “absolute must-have for music and sports car enthusiasts.”

At around $550, the speaker is priced just a hair less than the $150k 2018 911 GT3.
