Since 2020, Porsche Classic has offered two infotainment systems for several of the brand’s vintage and modern classic cars, namely Porsche Classic Communication Management (PCCM) and Porsche Classic Communication Management Plus (“PCCM Plus”).
These modern devices provide various functions, including the use of “Apple CarPlay” (starting with “iPhone 5”) and “Android Auto” for multimedia playback, navigation system and phone calls. The respective product range is now also available for the sixth-generation 911 (“997” model) 2005-2008 models, the early Boxster and Cayman (“987″) 2005-2008 models and the first-generation Cayenne ” for models manufactured from 2003 to 2008. For the first time, Porsche is also offering individual devices in different regions.
After the successful launch of infotainment systems on classic models, owners of early 911 generation 977 models also showed interest.
The aforementioned Porsche models were already equipped with the second generation Porsche Communication System (PCM) in 2 DIN format upon request. The new “PCCM Plus” perfectly replaces these original built-in units, as well as the CD player and radio CDR 23 (Cayenne) and the CD player and radio CDR 24 (Boxster/Cayman).
The appearance of this system is adapted to the components already installed in the car, such as the climate control panel or push buttons. Therefore, “PCCM Plus” seamlessly integrates into the design of the car. The “Porsche” logo immediately shows that these devices are developed by “Porsche”. Peripheral components including amplifier, speakers or antenna can be used as before. In-dash navigation displays are also still supported.
“PCCM Plus” equipment includes a seven-inch (~17.78 cm) touch-sensitive screen with a modern graphic display. DAB+ allows you to receive digital radio stations in the European version, while the US and Canadian version is programmed with SiriusXM® satellite radio. The driver is provided with the latest built-in navigation with Porsche-specific points of interest (POIs) displayed in 2D or 3D. It will offer regular map updates in the future. Media playback is possible via USB flash drive, Bluetooth®, Apple CarPlay (from iPhone 5) and Android Auto™. Another feature is the on-board computer, which provides a lot of useful driving data.
In the “911”, “Boxster” and “Cayman” models, it is also possible to save personal car settings. Depending on the vehicle’s equipment, this memory function can be used for the lights, windshield wipers, climate control, and vehicle locking.
The new “PCCM Plus” devices cost 1,694 euros (including 21% VAT). The devices and separately available map material can be ordered from Porsche centers. It is recommended to install them at a “Porsche Classic” partner or at a “Porsche” center.
