There is nothing that screams petrolhead than working on a desk that used to be the front end of a Lamborghini Aventador, or chilling out on a sofa made out of the front end of a Porsche 356 while sipping on a coffee made from an F1 Engine Espresso Machine and immerse in the sound puts out by an exhaust system of a Porsche 911 GT3.
The latter would be the Porsche Design 911 Soundbar 2.0 Pro – Ltd. It is not just named after the 911 GT3 race car; it is made from the lightweight stainless steel exhaust system from the current generation (992) 911 GT3.
It is a 2.1.2 virtual surround sound system with Dolby Atmos DTS-HD streaming and the super cool, though admittedly not the most eye-pleasing, stainless steel exhaust serves as a subwoofer extension with its sound body.
All told this petrol head-pleasing soundbar puts out more than 300 watts of power and further boasts 4K-compatible HDMI ports, Bluetooth 5.0, and works with both Apple AirPlay 2 and Google Chromecast. There’s support for other streaming media too, including Spotify Connect.
The soundbar also supports multi-room synchronization with the 911 Soundbar Special Editions, 911 Soundbar Final Editions and future new Porsche Originals sound products that can be connected to each other on the same network.
It can be wall mounted or stand on the included base but if the listed weight of 65 kilograms (143 pounds!) is true, then perhaps leaving it on a flat surface would be a better idea.
If you are down, you probably will want to pre-order it soon because it has a limited run of just 500 units worldwide. Then again, at US$12,000 per unit (not a typo), it probably won’t fly off the shelves anytime soon. We could be wrong, though. The Porsche Design 911 Soundbar 2.0 Pro Soundbar is expected to be available on January 01, 2023, at 8 AM.
