The development of a Porsche Tequipment sports exhaust system is complex. It starts when the car and its driving behaviours are still in the digital development phase. Our acoustic specialists in Weissach calculate the desired sound as a result of the effects of various combinations of exhaust system and silencers. Parameters that will provide a perfect sound.
To ensure this is executed perfectly, the typical Porsche sound is evaluated both objectively on noise measuring devices, such as special acoustic test rigs, for example, and subjectively on the road. After deciding on a sound characteristic, the specification of the exhaust system is determined. Based on the dimensions and internal structure of the silencer, the perfect sound is then defined – to suit the respective engine, of course. After applying the exhaust actuators, the sports exhaust system can be activated instantly – and the sporty nature of the sound increases significantly, whilst remaining within the emissions limits. The sound of the engine is deliberately directed into the interior and amplified – for a sound experience similar to that in motorsport. Both inside and out. Once the sound has finally been harmonised, the sports exhaust system must prove itself during a rigorous test programme – just like any other Porsche component. Following successful testing, the sports exhaust system is then fitted to your Porsche, so that it can demonstrate what it is capable of – instantly, whenever you want.
