Porsche Classic, the division of Porsche AG that specializes in the preservation and restoration of Porsche vehicles, has recently introduced two new infotainment systems for many of the brand’s vintage and modern classic cars. The Porsche Classic Communication Management (PCCM) and Porsche Classic Communication Management Plus (PCCM Plus) devices are retrofitted devices that enable the use of Apple CarPlay (from iPhone 5) and Android Auto™ for media playback, navigation and for making phone calls.
The new PCCM Plus devices are now available for the sixth-generation 911 generation 997 for model years 2005 to 2008, the early Boxster and Cayman generation 987 for model years 2005 to 2008, and the first-generation Cayenne for model years 2003 to 2008. This is the first time Porsche is offering specific devices for different regions.
Porsche Classic has seen a huge demand for contemporary networking of their timeless classics, and after the successful launch of the infotainment systems for retrofitting, they received corresponding queries from owners of early 911 generation 997, according to Ulrike Lutz, Director of Porsche Classic.
The new PCCM Plus devices include a 7-inch touchscreen with a state-of-the-art graphical display. DAB+ enables the reception of digital radio stations with the European version, while the version for the USA and Canada is programmed for the SiriusXM® satellite radio. The driver is provided with the latest on-board navigation with Points of Interest (POI) specific to Porsche displayed in 2D or 3D. Map updates will be offered for this at regular intervals in the future. Media playback is possible via USB stick, Bluetooth®, Apple CarPlay (from iPhone 5) and Android Auto™. The trip computer also provides lots of useful driving data. In the 911, the Boxster and the Cayman, personal settings for the car can also be stored.
The PCCM Plus devices cost EUR 1,520.37 and can be ordered at Porsche Centres. Porsche recommends fitting the devices at a Porsche Classic partner or Porsche Centre. With this new product range, Porsche Classic is enabling their customers to enjoy the latest technology in their vintage and classic cars, making the driving experience even more enjoyable and convenient.
