The sound the new Boxster GTS makes!

Have heard the beautiful noise it makes? This has got to be the best sounding factory Boxster ever.

Hm, there is something like too much back fire.
Sounds a little bit too manufactured and metallic to me, sorry. I don't hear that flat-6 howl anymore.

I concur on the backfire and sounding a bit artificial.

Not to be too centric, but I think my 997 Engine (3.6L) powered Boxster sounds way better. I will post videos at some point.

Happy Motoring.

Modern computer controlled engines do not burble. So, the fact that this one does means that it is artificially created.

And that my friends, is sad. Very sad.

Mine does ... "Open" Pse and sharkwerks bypass
Or you can Feather the throttle whilst left foot braking for maximum noise
The 991 makes a pretty good noise on lifting .
Not sure if the throttle doesn't mechanically fully close or it's electronic .

Sometimes I get a snap crackle pop on the overrun and definitely a burble...but not a machine gun effect like this. I wonder how it is created. IIRC the snap and pop got greatly reduced with after installation of a 74mm TB.

I have a custom bypass stock muffler and sec. cat delete pipes that do it. Will try to capture the sound on video and post.

Thstone, did Porsche really do something to the motor or exhaust to create the burble / pop? Or just enhance it as others in the automotive industry have done?

The flat 6 has an inherent strange "flatulent" sound as it comes off revs with many exhausts, I've heard it explained before but forget the specifics. My Box S had a B & B exhaust on it that had a beautiful burble to it that kept me from pulling it due to drone.

Well until the automatic 991 GT3 crashes the party.

I think that sounds awesome. I don't understand the negative comments. Exhaust is exhaust. Manipulate it as you will.

Fantastic car .
I've been drooling over one for the last few weeks at circle porsche .
White and decked out with red/black porsche livery (I think from cfos)
They also had a black one in , but I think that sold .
My service guy told me I could get one the RSs they have coming in , unfortunately there is a little problem with that ........ I didn't win the lottery again this weekend
If I did , I'd be there this morning buying the gt3 and turbo S they have in , and putting my name on that RS .
That would only blow half a million ........

It's automatic. The software is actually changing the gear, not a direct hand-on-gear lever-to-trans interplay. The software will even allow you to mess up a down/up change to make you think you're doing the actual gear shift. It's either a mechanical transmission, where the driver does the physical shift, or its HAL doing the shifting which makes it an automatic. Or in the case of PDK a sporty automatic. It's also part of the reason why racing is so boring and so few drivers can overtake (cleanly) anymore.

What a load of nonsense .
That's like saying an electronic throttle is to blame and we should go back to throttle cables .
