Porsche put a high-end exhaust on a $12,000 soundbar

In a nutshell: German studio Porsche Design is now accepting pre-orders for a limited-edition 911-inspired soundbar that will set you back $12,000. The 911 Soundbar 2.0 Pro – Ltd. is a virtual 2.1.2 surround sound system offering 300 watts of system power. It offers 4K-capable HDMI ports and Bluetooth 5.0 wireless connectivity, and is compatible with Dolby Atmos and DTS-HD as well as Apple AirPlay 2 and Google Chromecast for streaming.

The soundbar can also connect to other Porsche Design products for multi-channel streaming. There is also an exhaust system attached to the front of the soundbar. Wait what?

The most notable feature here is undoubtedly the exhaust. Porsche Design placed a real exhaust system from the original Porsche 992 GT3 on the front of the soundbar. Impressive as it may sound to Porsche and car enthusiasts in general, the exhaust is purely cosmetic as the sound from the bar does not come through the pipes. Sorry, you can’t have your cake and eat it too.
