One of the most desirable and asked-for options for Porsche 996s is the Sports Exhaust system – and for good reason too.
To comply with modern noise regulations the standard exhaust on the 996 is necessarily quiet, which means that the car doesn’t have that trademark 911 soundtrack. So Porsche offered an optional switchable Sports Exhaust system. Press a button on the dash and the exhaust note immediately becomes raspier and just slightly louder – it sounds great, in other words!
Usually, the system is in quiet mode by default but a simple modification can be made which makes the exhaust louder as standard and, by pressing the button, it becomes quiet. That’s the way to have it!
