Classic cars generally are investments and their value increases every year. It would be a heart breaking experience to lose a classic Porsche purchased for millions.
To prevent theft, Porsche has built an anti-theft system named the Porsche Classic Vehicle Tracking System, such a simple name for a device protecting an expensive asset ? .
It is designed to be installed on the car without being noticed. It also communicates with a security network, which is only in Europe for now.
If the battery is disconnected or the car is successfully stolen, the system alerts both the owner and Porsche’s international security center. Once the owner confirms the car has actually been taken, the system will notify law enforcement. Since the system is GPS-enabled, the security center will be able to let the authorities know where the stolen Porsche is or where it’s headed. It will also be possible to remotely disable the engine, making it more difficult to move the car ?.
Here is what Alexander Fabig, head of Porsche Classic said:
“In 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. In an ideal scenario, this intervention will stop the vehicle from disappearing right from the outset”
There is no word on pricing yet and plans for availability in other parts of the world has not been announced. There is no doubt you are going to be paying a substantial amount of money to protect your sweet classic ride ?.
