The model will be equipped with four different displays with touch controls. One of them will be installed opposite the front passenger, and will have a separate operating system from the rest of the car’s multimedia system. He will be able to broadcast streaming video, music and weather, however, “surfing” the Internet will be impossible. What became known on August 26, 2019.

Porsche is preparing to bring to the market one of the most anticipated electric cars of our time – the Taycan coupe-shaped sedan with a true sporty character. Last week, the company declassified the interior of the future news, which will be made in a minimalist-tech style. Four displays will be installed in the cabin, one of which (10.9 inches) will be focused on the front passenger. Porsche had an idea to launch a browser on it to browse the Internet, but in the end they abandoned this idea.

According to company management, creating an integrated browser with high speed and completely safe from hacking is very difficult. This refers to car multimedia systems. Other manufacturers, for the sake of safety, apply the technology of processing all information on their own servers, and only then transfer it to cars. But many users complain about the performance and glitches.

“If someone really wants to browse the web, it might be best done on a smartphone,” said Oliver Fritz, director of the brand’s customer service division.

Currently, Porsche has already received 30,000 pre-orders for the Taycan, with an estimated annual circulation of 40,000 copies. A 600 horsepower installation will be used as a power plant. Acceleration to “hundreds” will take about 3.5 seconds, and the power reserve – about 500 km at full charge.
