Thanks!

I do not have electric sport sound on my RWD. It makes the same noises as electric sport I heard when testing a turbo model last year just not amplified like cars that have the option. (additional speakers) I do hear an increase in motor sound volume when in SPORT and SPORT PLUS.

Electric sound option not worth $500 IMO.

It sounds the same on my RWD as the 4S I test drove.

It's a great option and I use it every single drive. I get tons of positive comments on it too!

"I wish my Tesla had a sound like that!"
"It sounds exactly what I'd expect a car from the future to sound like!"

Just the beginning. Soon you’ll be able to program your car to sound like any Porsche from history.

Is that confirmed/real? It would be amusing to make it sound like my 991.1 in Sport+ mode with PSE :)

Tesla allows the ability to play sounds from a flash drive on the external speaker on Model 3 & Y. Gimmick if you ask me - but that's they're about.

Tech is there I'm sure other manufacturers can just modify to adapt to different applications. (i.e. 991 with sport exhaust)

There’s a variety of sound design techniques which would work perfectly together today (convulsion reverb, syntheses and good old fashioned audio sampling). It’s whether Porsche decide to do this themselves, or open it up to third-parties to come up with ideas. The technology is already well-established and used in applications such as sound design for games and movies.
