Porsche brings the power and performance of a sports car to the home theatre with their 911 soundbar

I’ve been fascinated with Porsche’s 911 sports car since I was old enough to even think about driving. I even owned a scale die cast model in midnight black. So when I saw that Porsche had designed a soundbar using parts from a 911 you can bet it piqued my interest. I never could afford that …
