  1. It is my understanding that Porsche will only have Apple carplay and NOT Android Auto. The article states Porsche Macan will have Android Auto..can you confirm this?

    • This is from the HARMAN news release “Along with the new Porsche 911 Carrera and 718 Boxster, the new Porsche Macan will feature a 7” / 16:9 high resolution TFT touch screen and connect to WiFi-enabled devices like the iPhone via Apple CarPlay and other smartphones supporting hands free Bluetooth connectivity.”

      We made a mistake on the subhead that has been fixed. The whole Android Auto /CarPlay thing is hard to keep track of.
