Porsche’s Retro-Style Bluetooth Car Stereo Pairs Perfectly With Vintage 911s

Cutting into a vehicle for the purpose of installing a modern stereo has always been frowned upon by classic car communities, with the sacrilegious modification taking the ride further from its stock condition and ultimately lessening its value and prestige. Knowing this, Porsche set out to create a solution to this problem with a modern, plug-and-play stereo that wouldn’t clash with the vintage aesthetic of the Porsche 911’s interior.

Christened the “Classic Communication Management” (or PCCM) stereo, these systems feature modern amenities like Apple CarPlay, 2D and 3D GPS guidance, SD card slots, 1/8th” auxiliary jack, USB, and Bluetooth connectivity, plus the option to receive Sirius Satellite Radio. There are two versions of the system, one compatible with a 1-DIN setup and one with a 2-DIN configuration — the first of which has a 3.5” touchscreen while the second packs a 7” unit — meaning these stereos work with all 911 models from the 1960s until the turn of the millennium, from the 911F up through the 993-generation. Best of all, the PCCM systems don’t appear to require any form of permanent modification, and can seemingly be undone at any time. Pricing for the PCCM 1-DIN starts at $1,465 while the 2-DIN has an MSRP of $1,645.
