New switchable sporty exhaust note for Porsche 911s
26 January 2009

Porsche has unveiled a new user-controlled sports exhaust system that improves the car’s exhaust note.

A button on the centre console controls a flap in each of the twin exhaust system’s silencers, varying the sound of the exhaust according to the engine’s speed and load. This results in a punchier, more sporting exhaust note.

The new Porsche sports exhaust system is available on Carrera and Targa 4 models, and will cost around £1700 when it goes on sale in April. Existing customers will also be able to purchase the new sports exhaust system as a retro-fit option.

  • Skoda-Karoq 2.0 TDI 4x4
    First Drive
    16 October 2017
    Diesel version of Skoda’s junior SUV is unobtrusive and undemanding, but we’d still go for the silkier petrol version of the Karoq

    Expensive and flawed but this understated diesel-electric Audi Q7 has a lot to offer

    Is the third gen Citroën C3 ‘fresh and different’ enough to take on its supermini rivals? We spend six months with one to find out
  • BMW X3
    First Drive
    15 October 2017
    A satisfying rework of the X3 that usefully improves its handling, cabin finish, space and connectivity to make this BMW a class front-runner again
