    The all-electric Porsche Taycan already features Apple Music functions – now, Porsche and Apple are adding support for Apple Podcasts and Apple Music’s Time-Synced lyrics on the passenger-side display.

    From the touchscreen display of the Porsche Advanced Cockpit, drivers can stream over 1.5 million shows from Apple Podcasts, the world’s leading podcast platform. This is the first-ever full integration of Apple Podcasts in any vehicle, and it includes the entire catalogue-of-record with programming in 100 languages plus Top Charts for shows and episodes.

    Apple Music has also added support for Time-Synced Lyrics on the passenger-side display, making it easy to discover, sing, or just follow along to songs from their library, thousands of curated playlists, and personalised stations.

    “The Taycan embodies the pioneering spirit of Porsche – as the first all-electric car from Zuffenhausen. It sets benchmarks within the context of digitalisation and
sustainability – and this also applies to the interior,” says Detlev von Platen, Member of the Executive Board for Sales and Marketing at Porsche AG. “The new Apple Music and Apple Podcast offerings expand the emotional driving experience with the Taycan with a seamlessly integrated digital feature for music lovers. There is more to come."

    “A great podcast can make any drive more enjoyable,” adds Oliver Schusser, Vice President of Apple Music, Beats and International Content. “With Apple Podcasts, drivers can effortlessly catch up on the latest news, hear incredible stories and enjoy the company of their favorite hosts. And with Apple Music, passengers can easily sing along to their favorite songs with Time-Synced Lyrics.”

    Apple Podcasts and Apple Music’s time-synced lyrics are available now to new Taycan customers and will roll out to all owners in January.

    • Od as it might seem, it is stuff like this that can swing a buyer's decision making. Although I have zero interest in this kind of thing, I'm very much in the minority here. The Taycan, for all its faults, is the best selling Porsche by a country mile and this will only make it better... so well done Porsche Marketing! Apple is the premium phone brand, fully integrated, no need to select what way you want stuff to be served to you... just plug and play, works first time. I bought a decent Android phone when my old iPhone 5s died. What a pile of crap. You need a computing degree just to get the damn things to do what an iPhone does without requiring more than a casual thought. Integrating a full featured Apple link and functionality, no doubt with an Android alternative from which to choose, will cater better for the high income category of buyer for whom Apple products are the go to supplier.
