Top 10 Cars With the Best-Sounding Engines

7. Porsche 911 Turbo S

What’s interesting about the Porsche 911 Turbo S is that its engine doesn’t sound like much but we still absolutely LOVE it. Here’s what we mean. The car doesn’t rumble, burble or scream like other gasoline-burning powerplants. Instead, these traditional mechanical noises are replaced by a gigantic whooshing sound when the accelerator is prodded; the noise is not unlike an F5 tornado.

There’s a small amount of boxer grumble but this car’s dominant acoustic element brings to mind a Boeing 777 at takeoff instead of a top-fuel dragster. Output measures 560 hp and 516 lb-ft of torque from a 3.8-liter flat-six. Zero to 60 takes just 2.9 seconds. Maybe that’s why we love this car so much …

  • Justin Black

    Ford 302. Best sounding motor on the planet.

  • Filip

    Where is the Maserati? Clearly the best sounding car out there

  • Pushkar

    If the BMW E60 M5 did not make it to the list, I do not believe this list. That car is hands down ONE OF the best sounding cars in the world. The first 4-5 (Starting from the highest number) on the list were not even justified.
    The top 4 were where they belong.

  • Manitha Chandrasena
