Porsche Developing Anti-theft Protection for Classic Vehicles

If the worry of losing your classic Porsche to theft is taking the joy out of owning one of the world’s finest sports cars, the automaker has some news that will lower your stress. Porsche is in the final stages of creating a anti-theft protection system for all classic cars ranging from the 356 to the Carrera GT. It will be available for purchase in the spring of next year and you can get more information from Porsche of Tucson.

GPS Monitoring Keeps Tabs on Your Car

The innovative and comprehensive anti-theft system uses Global Positioning System (GPS) sensors that are hidden throughout the vehicle to keep tabs on the location of your vehicle. Although the initial system will just cover Europe, availability will undoubtedly expand worldwide in the future. “In the future, the new Porsche Classic Vehicle Tracking System will allow us to offer our customers anti-theft functionality that will trigger an alarm if someone tries to steal the vehicle,” according to Porsche Classic VP Alexander Fabig. “In an ideal scenario, this intervention will stop the vehicle from disappearing right from the outset.”

Sends Alarm to Security Monitoring

Once a battery becomes disconnected or a vehicle that has the Porsche Classic Vehicle Tracking System is stolen, the system will send an alarm to both the security center and the customer. Once the owner confirms that someone with bad intentions is involved, the authorities are notified and the security center uses the GPS to locate the vehicle and track the route. Another option of this innovative system is to use a wireless command as a “kill switch” to keep the engine from starting. Communication with the customer is maintained until the vehicle is secured and ready to be returned.

Porsche Classic App has Many Functions

The Porsche Classic Vehicle Tracking system is controlled through the Porsche Classic smartphone app that has many additional functions. You can use your phone to pinpoint the location of the vehicle in a crowded parking lot, or even set boundaries as to where a guest driver may take your car. Once the guest crosses those boundaries, an alarm is raised and they’ll have some explaining to do. The system also has a “workshop” and “transport mode” to make sure no alarms are sent when the vehicle is being serviced or transported on a trailer. There are also many aftermarket security systems to help ensure your Porsche classic vehicle remains in your possession. Stop by Porsche of Tucson for advice on which one would work best for your particular car.
