Porsche Is Providing Infotainment With Carplay and Bluetooth for Its Early 2000S Models

Porsche has always prioritized its users’ experience to make it more seamless and fun. The luxury car brand changed the entire vintage cars game when, in 2020, it released touchscreen infotainment options for old 911s, allowing owners of air-cooled vintages access to digital maps and music. The factory-approved retrofit units are available in two sizes: a 3.5-inch Porsche Classic Communication Management (PCCM) configuration or a larger 7.0-inch Porsche Classic Communication Management Plus (PCCM Plus) configuration. PCCM comes with a tiny screen that owners may need to squint to read words from farther away than a Planck unit, However, the PCCM Plus enables owners to move their heads back a few micrometers.

The New Advancements to Infotainment

With the advancements in technology, Porsche has also upgraded its infotainment over the last few years. The first-generation Cayenne, the 987 Boxster and Cayman, the 997 911 (2005-2008), and Porsche Classic are all getting touchscreen functionality (2003–2008). This provides the users with Bluetooth, USB connection, Android Auto functionality, plus AppleCarPlay, and SiriusXM radio, and it comes with a 7.0 inch double DIN size screen. You can even add personal settings in your Porsche, such as climate controls, car locks, lights, and windshield wipers.

The Price

Like the ones previously revealed, the new PCCM Plus units are made to seamlessly integrate into the dashboard. In an effort to provide owners with a contemporary experience without detracting from the generational feel of the automobile, the look and feel are based on features like climate control that are already installed in the vehicle. Porsche dealerships are able to take orders for both PCCM and PCCM Plus units. You can grab your PCCM Plus device at a suggested retail price of roughly $1475.
