Porsche Connect is a digital co-pilot, accessible on your smartphone and integrated in the vehicle.

It's an ingenious technological experience that all Porsche owners will love, myself included. The only Connect system issue you'll find, is the learning curve, if that! Updates to the system via hardware and software should improve it a lot over the years. For now, here are the features we should pay attention to, along with sharing tips and personal experience.

Please keep in mind that the Porsche Connect services vary according to model and country availability. This list is for the U.S. Spec Taycan.
