Sports Cars / Comments

Performance is up, but what aural pleasure?

Porsche's decision to turbocharge its entire lineup of sports cars from the Boxster to the 911 was a move that boils down to emissions, fuel economy and performance. Porsche didn't have a choice really, but has the vehicles' sound changed? YouTuber TheGetawayer put together Porsche-produced footage of the latest 911 and 718 Boxster S and compared it to the previous models. It may not be the best way to do a sound comparison of the vehicles, but it does give enthusiasts a view of how the engine note has changed.

It's clear to hear that the exhaust note has changed in the sports cars, but is it really that bad?
