Apple CarPlay and Android Auto get added to Porsche’s classic car radios as the company introduces two new head units for its classic cars.
Porsche has introduced a new head unit for its classic cars that have modern conveniences like a touchscreen display, Bluetooth, and Apple CarPlay. The German sports car manufacturer has introduced two models of the stereo system, one with a single din slot and a 3.5-inch display, the other with a double din slot with a 7-inch display, for more recent models. The entire setup is called the Porsche Classic Communication Management (or PCCM), a rather Porsche name for the system.
Additionally to these stereo systems, USB connectivity along with an SD card slot has been added. But Porsche purists might be alarmed as putting a touchscreen display in a vintage car might just stand out and look out of place but Porsche has carried a few retro design touches like rotary knobs as well as physical buttons. The larger 7-inch display two-din stereo also supports Android Auto.
Porsche is looking to solve the problem that for years many of this vintage car collectors have faced, that in this modern-day and age they don’t have any device that offers them navigation or audio streaming services in their vehicles. The packaging for this entire stereo system is up to OEM spec and fits in with its respective models for the smaller 3.5 inch model for the truly classic retro cars and the 7-inch for the modern classics.
Porsche also released a hilarious advert to debut these products you can watch it down below here.
Most Porsche enthusiasts would rather fit an OEM product that comes directly from Porsche rather than go and fit an aftermarket head unit and that is what Porsche is banking on with these products.
