At the track, on the road or at home, on the lawn or next to the pool – now thanks to Porsche’s Design new 911 speaker you can carry everywhere your passion for the German sports car, and also get a supercar music experience.
You might remember we once talked about Porsche Design’s $3,500 911 Soundbar, which is inspired by the 911 GT3 exhaust – but if that’s a tad too costly for you there’s another option. The 911 speaker is not exactly a mirror teardrop just like the Soundbar, but at least you can have it for a more Earthly $599. The set of speakers look like the dual exhausts that come out the back of certain 911s, and Porsche Design decided on an aluminum housing with a premium high-gloss black finish. It’s also superbly compact – 11.42 inches long, 6.1 inches wide, and 4.7 inches tall (290 x 155 x 120 millimeters). That’s because you’ll get a 60-watt system with Bluetooth 4.0 connectivity for pairing with devices from up to 33 feet away (10 meters).
To make sure you can pump up the sound as much as you can, the onboard lithium-ion battery is good for an extended beach party session of 24 hours, with the gadget also accepting voice commands. If you shell out the cash to buy a pair, there are some interesting features. You could pair them together to act as left and right speakers – or make them broadcast the same sounds from separate places to create the illusion of surround effect in large spaces.
