In the year 1963, Prof. Ferdinand Alexander Porsche designed the legendary Porsche 911. And even to this day, that name has been synonyms to one of the most iconic cars the world has ever seen. It is the longest running production car that still stays true to its roots as the quintessential sports car. The newest edition of this legend is the 911 GT3. Besides its mind-bending performance figures and its handling prowess as a rear engine layout, it carries a glorious exhaust note from the flat six via its titanium silencer and chrome exhaust tips.

“Contemporary. Cool. Iconic.” Has been the tag line of every product that came out of the Porsche Design Studio in Zell am See and Berlin. They go beyond the borders of the automobile and create a new styling world for discerning men and women running the show. One such product from this company is the 911 GT3 Bluetooth Speaker. A music sound system that notes every symphony of the sports car being transcended once again through a 911 exhaust unit.

It is not any exhaust unit, but the 911 GT3’s original twin chrome exhaust tailpipe that resonates the sound that eventually fills your room with acoustic and visual treats. The best of both worlds. The sound of a Porsche through its exhaust is a masterpiece to one’s ears, and the very same piece of music is made available by building this black beauty with the chrome tail pipe and aluminium housing.

The parts are genuine to its conception, and it hosts the capacity for a Bluetooth 4.0.

It is also crowned with the experience of clean stereo sound through its wireless mode, thanks to the apt X-technology that gives us loss-free audio transmission. We’d have to hear a comparison to see if that’s really true, but let’s be honest, even if the exhaust didn’t do anything, the speaker just looks cool.

The functionality of this device meets the style factor by housing NFC technology with a 24-hour battery supply. That is the highest rating ever given out by any Bluetooth speaker till date. This is celebrated the most by them hard core music peeps for an uninterrupted music marathon.

Porsche says that one could achieve greater stereo separation by pairing more than one of these units that can sync together to act as the left and the right channels. Else, they can also be synced just to be switched to individual stereo mode to fill the space with louder and consistent music.

The design concept of 911 speakers with its tailpipe cover and aluminium housing allows this Bluetooth speaker to deliver utmost power and sound to the hearing pleasure. The speaker weighs 3.3 kg, which is light and is portable enough to carry it around with you.

Coming to the pricing, it costs $550 (₹ 35500), which is still a chunk of change but when you compare it with the $3,100 (₹ 2.4 lakh) Porsche 911 GT3 Soundbar that the company also makes, the 911 Bluetooth Speaker sounds like a bargain. Look for the speaker at Porsche Design centres and online stores from October 2017.
