Porsche Car Connect App

Whether you drive a 718 Cayman or a Panamera, with Porsche Connect your smartphone, smartwatch, and car unite to form a mobile network.

Managing vehicle functions via smartphone or smartwatch has been possible with Porsche since the Car Connect app was introduced in the 918 Spyder. Now, with the new Panamera, a much more expansive generation of digital communication is coming to the market: Porsche Connect. This system offers an enormous spectrum of interactive features, apps and services. 

The Porsche Connect equipment package is offered in two forms: Connect and Connect Plus. Connect is available as an option for the 718 models and the Macan, and includes a smartphone tray for optimised mobile phone reception, as well as Apple CarPlay and Porsche Car Connect apps. Car Connect functions include remote and e-mobility services (such as calling up vehicle information and remote control of some vehicle functions), safety services (breakdown and emergency assistance), and security services (vehicle localisation in case of theft, owner notification, and an alarm centre).

If you attended the recent Panamera launch evening held at our centre you may have seen the Porsche Car Connect App in action. In addition, our Sales Team is on hand to demonstrate just how this new generation of technology can help you, whether you are a Porsche owner or looking to become one.
