Apple announced on its CarPlay webpage that the legendary German automaker Porsche is the latest brand to receive CarPlay in its line of future automobiles.
The company didn’t provided details on when Porsche will rollout the standard or how it will replace the company’s own Porsche Communication Management that offers GPS navigation, voice control and digital audio, along with speed limit indicators as you’re whipping your super-fast Porsche down the highway.
Last month, Apple CEO Tim Cook revealed all major car manufacturers plan to incorporate the third-party infotainment platform into 40 new car models in 2015.
In addition to Porsche, CarPlay is supported by Audi, BMW, Chevrolet, Hyundai, Mazda, Subaru, Mercedes-Benz, Ford, Honda, and others. CarPlay is also available in aftermarket automobile sound systems available from Alpine and Pioneer.
Along with Apple, who is working on its auto platform, Google and Microsoft are also fighting for the dashboard. Google is offering an Android Auto platform similar to CarPlay, while Microsoft is working on a new iteration powered by BlackBerry’s QNX.
