Hello

I just wanted to check, I had a 997 gen 2 previously and I was very disappointed with the exhaust sound, even after modifying the exhaust with sharkwerks (from memory?) - my question is does the 991.1 PSE sound more like the 997.1 or is it more like the 997.2?


Also I’m in the market for a black / white gen 1 C2s (PDK) - if anyone is thinking of selling please let me know.

Thank you Smile

I can't answer your question, but as I was on Tubi' S Facebook page earlier today I came across this. I've got the Tubi exhaust on my 997.2 and love it. Here is their 991.2 solution and sounds great for me

My C2 PDK doesn't have PSE, but I did have a C2S PDK with PSE for a week, its more like 997.2 than 997.1, but its better than both IMO. In sport/sport plus modes there are more crackles and pops, there is a sound symposer so more sound (albeit synthetic) comes into the car, it all sounded quite "supercar" compared to the 997.2 with PSE and bypass I had at the time.

When I first heard a 991.1 with PSE it sounded great. You have to wonder what they were thinking with the. 997.2. I’ve driven 981s that also sound good.

Personally I think the 991 sounds amazing, rivalling the 981. Ok it’s synthetic but who cares Thumb
Fav vid!

Possibly a car with PSE in Sport or SportPlus mode, it's got the overrun pops and gurgles that combination would provoke, but can't be absolutely sure, that does sound very fruity.

Regarding the exhaust noise in the cabin on a 991: I thought it wasn't supposed to be 'fake' on the 991 (as it is on so many cars now) but was in fact piped into the cabin from the engine?? Question Question

Yes, I think you’re right, it’s not electronically produced sound, I believe it’s a diaphragm that lets engine intake related noise into the cabin, but not gases.
