Talking Add engine sound to your Tesla?

I didn't even know these existed - wow!

Fabspeed makes amazing stuff, these probably sound incredible - but kind of funny to add in sound, I know Porsche, BMW have 'active' sound enhancement too, but this is waaaay over the top

I would do it. I love a good exhaust note and E's have none, so make it.

Inside my TMS there were so many different rattling and squeaky sounds thanks to it's lack of build quality, way more interesting than any engine sound. You expect things to fall apart all time (and a few times mine did too).

There is a website with sound clips from the different TMS sounds, but I couldn't find it again.

If I had an EV I'd look into something like this. Acceleration is no fun without the drama of your senses being stimulated.

The Tesla driver can just roll down their windows and make vroom vroom sounds, like we used to do as kids. Hahaha.

I can see a big aftermarket in this (not just for electric). Mounting external speakers/use existing sound system for engine noise. You could have a collection of different engine sounds to pick from.

May be the biggest poser expense I've seen for any car. And people here complain about others applying $15 M stickers?

Iirc the Model S will already allow you to upload any sound file you want, like a V8 rumble or something from Star Wars/The Jetsons. Somebody’s gotta do Bubb Rubb

True but better than driving something completely silent. EVs feel like their balls never dropped in puberty.

Sound brings a sense of occasion both inside and outside the car.

Sorry. I don't think so. Simply trading one exhaust pollution for exhaust noise pollution. Completely pointless.

Automakers should make the performance versions of EV's that simulate the feel and sound of NA motors paired to dual clutch transmissions. At least then this whole transition into EV's wouldn't be so painful. But it's gotta come from the manufacturer. Otherwise something like this is just weird and makes it feel similar to slapping a fake badge on your car.

How would that give it any credibility or legitimacy? It's still 100% false.
