Porsche unveils Apple CarPlay touchscreens for 911s in the 1960s

The head units of the multimedia system retain this vintage style.

Owners of vintage Porsche 911s may miss the car multimedia system, especially if you are used to navigation and the ability to play every song you have at any time.

For Porsche drivers of past decades, the brand introduced a new technology that will be integrated into the old classics. The German automaker introduced two new Porsche Classic Communication Management (PCCM) vintage car infotainment systems.

The first PCCM corresponds to single-DIN controls (a size standard set by the Germans in the 80s, which means Deutsche Industrie Norm), found in the Porsche 911 from the 1960s to the early 1990s of the 993. It has a 3.5-inch touch screen with integrated Porsche navigation system and Apple CarPlay support. To make it look like it belongs to this car, it has two handles on each side of the display and six buttons. In fact, it looks like it belongs to a car that was built when Apple founder Steve Jobs was only about 10 years old.

The second is PCCM Plus, suitable for 996 and 998 generation Boxster models, in which a double-DIN space is provided for the multimedia system. The touchscreen size is 7.0 inches, which Apple CarPlay supports, but unlike the smaller screen, it also supports Android Auto.

Unfortunately, if you have a CD changer, it will no longer work with this new device.

The upgraded PCCM single-din module is now available for $ 1,551. The larger double-din PCCM Plus model sells for $ 1,731. Both systems are available at Porsche Centers or the Porsche Classic shop.
