Vroom! Porsche creates a crazy sound bar from a 911 muffler

If you’re about to embark on your seventh viewing of the entire Fast and Furious franchise and things are starting to feel a little thin, the folks at Porsche Design might have just the thing for you — a sound bar built from a Porsche 911 muffler.

This isn’t just a lookalike — the 911 Soundbar is built from the original exhaust and silencer from a Porsche 911 GT3. The company says that this actually helps improve the sound, but as we haven’t listened to it in person, we’ll abstain from weighing in on the benefits (or problems) the acoustic properties of a car muffler might bring.

The unit features a single analog input as well as both coaxial and optical digital inputs. The 911 Soundbar also features support for Bluetooth connectivity, including aptX, in case you’d rather not use wires. DTS TruSurround virtual surround sound is included, as is a lip sync function to ensure your video and audio remain properly synchronized. The 911 also features bass and treble controls, as well as a built-in LED display and remote control.

The sound bar boasts a claimed 200 watts of power, so while we can’t speak to how good it might sound, it will almost certainly be loud. And if it doesn’t offer enough bass on its own, it’s also equipped with an external subwoofer input — possibly one made from a cargo van’s muffler?

This isn’t the only tech-related product to bear the Porsche design name. Earlier this year, the company unveiled a 2TB hard drive that was the result of a collaboration between Porsche Design and LaCie, while earlier this summer, Microsoft teamed up with the company on a 2-in-1 laptop design.

If you’re thinking this would be the perfect complement to your TV, be prepared to spend as much or more than your TV cost. The price on the Porsche Design website is $3,500. If you’re looking for something a little on the cheaper side, a Porsche Design candle will only cost you $45.
