Thread: Porsche Classic Radio for Z8?

  1. #1

    Porsche Classic Radio for Z8?

    Porsche now offers an Apple Play radio with full Apple integration for it's classic models. I wonder if this is something that could simply replace the Z8 head unit without any additional modifications?

    heavily modified for performance. Although, not to the level of GM's car

    I have just received my PCCM 1DIN head and hopefully the retrofitting work is straight forward. I have also contacted Kramer Automotive (supplier of this Porsche PCCM head), this is what Hans-Peter Schmidt (CEO) reply:
    "We also had several discussions with BMW Classic about the Z8 Radio replacement and I�m also a fan of the Z8 � I had one in the 2000er years but sold after some years"
    That's great news. I will keep you all posted how I go with this PCCM installation and hopefully all the latest connectivity works seamlessly. Cheers.
