Watching some supercar highlights from Goodwood and started to think about how someday we could all just be whirring around in near-silence, no intake or exhaust music to be heard.

That caused me to wonder, will some enterprising gearhead retrofit one of those engine noise enhancers that are on some cars now to project engine noises outside of a car?

Think of the possibilities. You could program your Apple Car econobox to sound like a 250 GTO, and then when you got tired of that (as if you could) you could, with a few swipes on the infotainment system, change it to sound like a Group B Quattro, or the Merlin in a P-51.

If such a thing ever came to pass, what would be on your “playlist” of engine sounds?
