Purists insist that their old Porsches stay in their period-correct condition. But those who are not as stringent can still drive their precious possessions around while sporting updated infotainment systems. 

Porsche PCCM 1

Porsche can retrofit your old models with updated infotainment systems

The German automaker has introduced its Porsche Classic Communication Management (PCCM) and Porsche Classic Communication Management Plus systems, now available for retrofitting on certain Porsche models up to 20 years old. Among the models that can accept the new infotainment setup are: 

  • 996-series Porsche 911 (1998-2005) 
  • 997-series Porsche 911 (2005-2008)
  • 986-series Porsche Boxster (1997-2004) 
  • Second-generation 987-series Porsche Boxster/Cayman (2005-2008)
  • First-generation Porsche Cayenne 

Replacing the second-generation Porsche Communications Management (PCM) system, the PCCM and PCCM Plus devices are engineered to fit into the vehicles’ 1 DIN (3.5-inch) and 2 DIN (7-inch) slots on the dashboard console. These come with an optimized high-resolution touchscreen display. 

State-of-the-art navigation technology is included, which also shows Porsche-specific points of interest with route guidance rendered in either 2D or 3D graphics. A Traffic Message Channel (TMC) feature delivers separate messages informing drivers of possible traffic disruptions.

It even has replacement systems for select vintage Porsche vehicles 

For entertainment, both the PCCM and PCCM Plus have an external mediabox carrying available interfaces for USB, iPhone, and auxiliary input. Bluetooth connectivity enables communications functions, including access to contacts. The touchscreen display also allows control over external music sources, and other telephony functions are supported through two built-in microphones.      

New features over the old PCM include Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, as well as Digital Audio Broadcasting (DAB+) for digital radio reception. Map data is stored in an SD card that is available as a separate accessory. Existing speakers, amplifiers, and antennae that are stock on the vehicle continue to function.

The new PCCM and PCCM Plus bring satellite navigation and smartphone connectivity

Both systems retain the PCM’s trip computer while enabling a new memory function for controlling the driver’s lights, wipers, climate control, and central door locks. 
According to Porsche, its designers took pains to recapture the look and feel of the original systems that PCCM and PCCM Plus will be replacing, including the tactile feel of the buttons. They combine the analog past and classic design with a digital future, resulting in a timeless driving experience. 

The new PCCM Plus units will reportedly cost around $1,476 (Php 80,600), exclusive of fees for the actual installation.
