2020 Porsche Taycan Will Be Able To Stream Apple Music Wirelessly

Porsche is partnering with Apple to allow the upcoming all-electric Taycan to stream Apple Music directly into the car.

It is no secret that the Taycan will be one of the company’s most important and technically innovative vehicles in recent years, and the inclusion of Apple Music streaming will help to differentiate the vehicle from its all-electric, and ICE-powered, rivals.

“It’s about innovation. It’s about design,” Porsche Cars North America president and chief executive Klaus Zellmer told CNBC at a recent gathering at the marque’s U.S. headquarters. “It’s about brand values that we share. And that’s why we were really excited when the project started.”

The Porsche Taycan’s use of this service distinguishes it from the armada of other vehicles on the market which offer Apple CarPlay, as the streaming service doesn’t require an iPhone to be plugged into the car. Of course, if customers wish to plug in their iPhones, they will be able to do so and use Apple CarPlay.

“We didn’t leave that out because we still feel it’s a valuable addition to our overall portfolio,” director of sales, marketing, and operations for Porsche Connect Lars Buchwald said. “Obviously, with Apple CarPlay, especially with a wireless phone you can access your mail your messages you can do phone calls, etc.”

Porsche recently announced that the Taycan will make its online debut on September 4 in an event that will be streamed live around the world.

In range-topping Turbo guise, Porsche’s EV will put out in excess of 592 HP from its two electric motors. Less powerful (and more affordable) versions will also be offered at launch, while down the road the range will welcome a Turbo S model with 724 HP.

    Incredible ! Streaming Apple Music completes this car, without this feature it would be garbage.

  • Dark Rebel

    Not all of us care about streaming music services! Just give me a good interface so I can plug in my Sony Walkman.

  • What about Google/YouTube Music? Stop forcing us to use Apple if we don’t want to. We have a choice of what we want to use and not be forced to use the one you want

    • europeon

      They’re *forcing* you to use certain products? LOL Just go buy someother car/brand that offers what you want.

      • Aeromann

        Yes, that’s true!
        But one day, you will have no other choice, what will you do? ?

        • runbuh

          Why would I have no other choice? Porsche still offers plenty of other “choices” through USB and Bluetooth interfaces. If you or I don’t like Porsche’s approach, then we vote with our dollars and buy a different car. If enough people do that, Porsche will notice the sales dip and actually figure out why.

          Don’t feel so helpless. This isn’t like the electoral college.

          • Aeromann

            You didn’t understand my point.
            If I don’t want anything of connected tech, where should I go?

          • Robert Barrett

            Um – don’t connect to it? No one is making you pair/connect your devices to your car.

          • Aeromann

            Well, you are true. For NOW you can but in 10 years it will be automatic with or without our agreement. ?

    • runbuh

      Just use Bluetooth to connect whatever Bluetooth-capable device you want, and then play/stream whatever you want via that device.

  • runbuh

    First off – EVERY CURRENT PORSCHE DOES THIS. It’s called Wireless CarPlay. $360 from Porsche. Porsche doesn’t support Android Auto because they value your privacy (just go find the old article from The Verge that explains it).

    Second off – no one is FORCING you to use it. You can still use regular old Bluetooth and stream whatever you want on whatever device supports Bluetooth.

    Will it work with my flip phone? : )
