This Is How The Porsche 911 Turbo Should Always Sound

Tuning / Comments

Fabspeed makes the car sing.

Of all the 911 variants, of which there are many, the flagship Turbo model has seldom been referred to as the best-sounding. Though the 2021 Porsche 911 Turbo S is currently the quickest 911 model with a 3.8-liter twin-turbo flat-six kicking out 640 horsepower, the naturally aspirated GT3 model produces a far more pleasing exhaust note. Luckily, there are plenty of aftermarket options that can wake up the 911 Turbo and make it sound much louder.

Fabspeed Motorsport in Pennsylvania is well-regarded for its Porsche exhaust systems after tuning the 718 GT4 to perfection. The company recently release new exhaust options for the 992 911 Turbo and the results are phenomenal.

Three different exhaust options are available for the 2021 model year and newer 911 Turbo and the 911 Turbo S. These include the Sport Catalytic Converters for $3,895, Sport Catalytic Converters with GT2RS Style Outlets for $4,295, and the Cat-Back Valvetronic Maxflo Exhaust System for $4,995. Like the stock exhaust system, Fabspeed's product offers a normal mode for quiet driving and sport mode for the loudest possible sound. The modes can even be controlled using the 911's built-in exhaust button.

No special tune is required to run any of the parts, but all three add various power levels.

The catalytic converters with the GT2 RS Style Outlets oddly add the least power and torque, with gains of 47.7 hp and 47.1 lb-ft of torque. The standard Sport Catalytic Converters is the best bang for your buck, adding 54.9 hp and 58.9 lb-ft of torque. It's worth noting, though, that the GT2 option shaves 25 pounds from the standard exhaust, while the standard system only drops one pound.

The Cat-Back Valvetronic Maxflo Exhaust System reportedly adds 48.7 hp and 53.7 lb-ft of torque while reducing weight by 9.8 lbs.

The 911 Turbo is hardly a slouch as it is with 572 hp and 590 lb-ft of torque in normal form, or 590 hp in Turbo S guise. Take a listen to Fabspeed's new exhaust because we think it makes the 911 Turbo sound better than ever.
