Apple CarPlay availability is broadening quite a bit this week, as Porsche has just unveiled radios that support the in-car system that fit in a variety of vintage models dating as far back as the 1960s.
LaCie Porsche Design Mobile Drive blends forward-thinking technology with the classic Porsche design. Available in a variety of configurations and colors, this USB-C drive is a perfect mate for the latest MacBooks and MacBook Pros.
Earlier this year, Apple poached Alexander Hitzinger, the former technical director of Porsche’s race car program who helped the car maker return to the Le Mans endurance race, a company source told Reuters last Friday. The move was first reported by Germany’s Manager Magazin.
Volkswagen-owned Porsche officially confirmed Hitzinger had left the luxury carmaker in the spring, but didn’t share any further information.
Apple’s infotainment system will be integrated natively into a 2017 edition of Panamera from Porsche, the German automobile manufacturer specializing in high-performance sports cars. The car maker announced this morning that the 2017 Panamera luxury sedan has CarPlay support via a built-in 12.3-inch touchscreen.
In addition to CarPlay, the vehicle will support a new version of Porsche’s own Communication Management system with navigation, a voice control system with support for natural language parsing, Porsche Connect and more.
German automobile manufacturer Porsche has become the first car maker to reveal a premium vehicle in a video game.
As reported by AppAdvice, an update to Electronic Arts’ Real Racing 3 contains the worldwide reveal of the Porsche Cayman GT4, a sports car with the distinctive mid-engine layout, marking the first time a real car has been unveiled through a mobile game.
