Porsche Classic radio and sat-nav


Porsche Classic has introduced a new radio/sat-nav head-unit which is suitable for use in older Porsches. This is much less retro in appearance than the previous Porsche Classic unit which means it looks more at home in later Porsches such as the 964, 968 and 993, although it would also look ok in older cars. The new unit sits more flush with the dash, whereas the previous one stuck out a good 10mm.

Compared to the gaudy LED-endowed head-units that most suppliers offer today, this will look so much better in an older Porsche, and I can see it proving popular.

The new Porsche Classic head unit features Bluetooth phone connectivity, touch-screen sat-nav, iPod input plus a FM radio (sadly, no DAB). Here’s a full specification:

    I went to Porsche Reading to enquire about this stereo. The cost is £750 + VAT for the unit and 5 hours labour to fit it @ £150 + vat per hour. A lot of money for a stereo so I think I will stick with my Becker Indianapolis Pro !
