Porsche is dialing up the capabilities of the infotainment system in some of its most popular cars and light trucks.
The sixth generation of the Porsche Communication Management system — or PCM 6.0 — adds direct Spotify integration, allowing users to access the streaming service without having to connect via a smartphone.
The infotainment system, available on newly produced 911, Taycan, Cayenne and Panamera models, also undergoes a visual update with new colored icons and wireless Android Auto connectivity.
Porsche’s voice assistant can now more easily access news updates, the owner’s manual and in-vehicle music streaming.
PCM 6.0 debuted in the 2022 Porsche 911, which arrived in U.S. stores last fall.
Infotainment has become a new battleground. Automakers see the high-tech systems as a way to differentiate and develop recurring revenue sources from subscription services.
