You won't miss it. I turn it on maybe 5% of the time I drive, if that.

If you want to race someone, it doesn't help anyway. You have to open all of the windows and very loudly growl "VROOM, VROOM" to get any takers.

Looks that I'm the only one who like it... I haven’t even heard sport sound in the cabin at all.
Maybe because of termal & noise insulated glass?
I had to open window to hear it... and turn music (Within Temptation, hello to all members from The Netherland) off. :angel:

I must admit I did not spec it and I really wanted it (also looked into how i could have it retro fitted and got the same price). However, having owned the car for a couple of months now, I am not missing it. I actually really like the silence and you have a great futuristic sound from the motors under acceleration and deceleration. On a relaxing drive, I even turn off the climate control just to enjoy the silence more.

I suggest you give you a few months then see if it is worth the effort/price.

Just to show my age, I remember Knight Riders 'Silent Mode'. That comes as standard on the Taycan!

So, get my 4S CT min Oct
Can’t wait.
…… but to my horror I only noticed yesterday that I haven’t spec’d sport sound. Big error.
……this is a disaster for me. It was the one thing I wanted more than any other. 😢

I know I can have it retro fitted by Porsche for the good value sum of around £1,700. Which seems highly unpalatable

are there any other providers who do this kind of thing? Any suggestions.?

thanks guys

It's a gimmicky waste of money and becomes tiring. I keep mine off. A rip off as a retrofit IMHO.

I thought you could add it from the Porsche Connect.

It’s 500 € if you select it, and it’s about 1700 if you want to install later…

Hi Rob.

I agree with most of the other posters here, the Sports Sound is nothing to write home about and it won’t be missed.

I have it on my Taycan 4S, but only because it was part of the Premium Package here in the US. I would NOT have optioned it if I had a choice.

The native sound of the Taycan is awesome—literally music to my ears and whenever the Sports Sound is engaged via the Sports Chrono I turn it off because it’s so damn annoying. I don’t need some synthesized, artificial sound to enjoy my Taycan—the car rocks just fine without it.

I must be in the minority - I turn on the sport sound every single time I drive.
I love it too.
It adds to the experience cuz it sounds like a spaceship, always on!
Especially when you pull up to very illegal speeds, in Sport Plus it sounds even better!
I really can relate to the OP...
