Porsche Debuts New Sports Exhaust System for 911 Carrera and Targa 4
The exhaust system can be easily activated using a button installed on the center console, “varying the sound of the exhaust as a function of engine load, road speed and engine speed,” as Porsche said in a press statement. The whole assembly is made of modified stainless-steel main silencers and can be easily spotted by the two dual tailpipes appearing on the rear side of the modified 911s.
“This special exhaust gives the customer the opportunity to adjust the 911 to his individual, personal preferences also in the car’s particular sound. The heart of the system is the exhaust flap on each main silencer activated by the engine’s electronic control system and switching over to a more sporting sound as soon as the driver activates the sound mode,” Porsche explained.
Since we're sure such an exhaust system sounds attractive to 911 owners, you should probably know that you can purchase it for 1,610 euros excluding taxes. In the United States, the MSRP is $2,500, the manufacturer said. “Starting in April 2009, Porsche will also be offering a Tequipment version for retrofitting,” it added, explaining that future Porsche models could be equipped with such an exhaust system straight from the factory.
