True-to-style upgrade with state-of-the-art technology

Atlanta, Georgia.  Porsche is responding to the growing demand for a built-in navigation device for vintage Porsche sports cars with its Porsche Classic Radio Navigation System. Following its successful market launch in Europe in February 2015, the Porsche Classic Radio Navigation System is now available in the USA and Canada. This purpose-built unit combines a style reminiscent of the original equipment radios in these cars with the benefits of modern digital technology. It fits perfectly into the DIN-1 slot used for decades in Porsche sports cars and is operated by means of two knobs, six discreetly integrated buttons, and a touch-sensitive 3.5-inch display. The new Classic Radio Navigation System also comes prewired with a lead for an optional SiriusXM® satellite radio tuner.

With its black surface and two authentic styles of knobs (both supplied as standard), the Classic Radio Navigation System blends harmoniously into the dashboard of classic Porsche models. It bears the Porsche logotype and is suitable for sports car generations between the first 911 from the 1960s to the last air-cooled 911 (993 series, MY1998), as well as the 912, 914, 924, 928, 944, and 968 models.

The Porsche Classic Radio Navigation System comes with key features of today’s systems. In addition to smartphone connection via Bluetooth, the unit has low-interference radio reception, precise navigation, two USB ports, and interfaces for a variety of external music sources, controllable from the display. In addition, the Classic radio has an internal microphone and an external microphone. The integrated amplifier delivers 4×45 watts and can be connected either directly to the loudspeakers or to the original sound system using an optional adapter cable.


Exclusively developed and adapted for classic Porsche sports cars 
The Porsche Classic Radio Navigation System has been exclusively developed for Porsche Classic sports cars. Radio reception, for instance, has been optimized for the built-in antenna supplied during original production (which is generally only a single telescoping rod). The device’s operating concept is based on Porsche Communication Management (PCM). It has undergone extensive testing at the Technical University in Munich to verify user friendliness, and numerous trial trips were made in the USA and Canada to test country-specific navigation. Drivers have a choice of arrows and two-dimensional or three-dimensional maps to display the route, and the maps are stored on a microSD card with eight gigabytes of memory. The new Classic Radio Navigation System is available immediately from authorized Porsche dealers.

The Porsche Classic division of Dr. Ing. h.c. F. Porsche AG is responsible for supplying parts for vehicles generally produced more than ten years ago. Its services cover all aspects of technical literature as well as the supply and reproduction of original parts, and even extend to complete restoration. The company is expanding its international dealer and service network to around 100 Porsche Classic Partners for optimal support of classic cars. Customers can expect a wide range of Porsche Classic services from Porsche Classic Partners. Through this measure, Porsche has integrated the care of modern classic and vintage cars in an innovative service concept, closely linking Porsche tradition and Porsche innovation.
