    If you like artificial sound, how about fake watches, handbags or designer cloth? Fake is fake!

    So true Smiley


    Re: uh oh...soon from Porsche ..synthetic sound via speakers

    Carlos from Spain:

    I would feel embarrased and stupid to drive a car with such a system turned on. I cannot find a reasoning in which someonewith minimum self respect could be fine with it on.

    Smiley The M5 has a similar system and the new M3/M4 uses a sound "enhancer", which basically amplifies the engine sound through the speakers, which doesn't really make the situation more "comfortable" for the driver. At least Porsche uses a sound symposer, which only lets more sound from the engine bay into the interior but there is nothing artificial about it and it should stay that way.

    The problem is with new sound emissions laws in the EU and of course the fact that larger and widely popular environmental groups, like Greenpeace, started to blame sound emissions from traffic for health issues and mental problems, so go figure... 

    The youth has changed as well, I can clearly see it when I look at young men around 18-25 years of age, they usually let their girlfriend drive in small cars and they drive small cars themselves, fuel consumption and environmental qualities are more important for them than power and performance. I'd say that at least 80% of the new generation is like that and it gets worse. Also, in Germany, many of the kids of our friends who are in that age group usually use public transportation or...more common...bicycles. It is cheaper for them and they want to show their support for a better environment. It starts in schools where teachers try to make the kids feel bad about cars, planes and...money (seriously).

    I assume Porsche had no other choice...

    Re: uh oh...soon from Porsche ..synthetic sound via speakers

    Eunice:

    Isn't it a little like the artificial shutter sound of a cheap digital camera?

    Artificial engine sound doesn't add to safety or performance of the car. And as for the 'experience', if it doesn't feel cheap for you now, it will feel cheap when you have the same sound in a Tata. 

    Smiley A friend of mine programmed a program where the microphone picks up the original car sound (changing loudness) and changes it through the speakers. He made a BT connection to the entertainment system of his Audi and it sounds amazing (you can get everything from a Formula 1 car to a starting jet Smiley). Only problem: He uses a laptop for that and the extra microphone is wired to the engine bay. He has actually sold the idea to a company quite a while ago, not sure however if this is going to be available any time soon. This would be great as a smartphone app but I wouldn't know how it could work. Smiley
