A client from Baltimore contacted Westminster Speed and Sound about an upgraded 2015 Porsche Cayman GTS radio and backup camera. One of our team members spent time getting to know him better and understanding his needs. As the relationship developed, a few things became clear: He wanted CarPlay and a backup camera, with factory-looking installation work. Fortunately, Porsche vehicles are near and dear to our heart, so we were honored to have the opportunity to work on this Cayman. At the end of our discussion, we presented a proposal to him that he approved, so time was set to begin the work.
Special Vehicles Require Special Care
First and foremost, a Porsche is a special kind of car. It was designed from the ground up to be a performance vehicle, but it’s also a car with intricate technology. For this reason, many people are leery about adding upgraded electronics because they don’t know whom to trust. Our company has been in business since 1969 and has focused solely on meeting the needs of special clients with special vehicles. As you can see in the pictures, we use protective material to guard against scratches around every area where we are working. Our standards even go beyond those of the vehicle manufacturer. Many of the people on our highly skilled team have more than 20 years of experience working on upscale vehicles. Vehicle networks such as CAN bus and MOST are technologies we embrace and interact with on a daily basis. We even own Porsche vehicles personally. When the Cayman arrived in our bay, a detailed check-in procedure was performed so we could know the present condition of the car. Upon completion of our work, a detailed check-out procedure is performed to ensure the vehicle leaves in the same condition we received it.
Sony Unit the Perfect Porsche Cayman GTS Radio
One of the favorite brands we sell at Westminster Speed and Sound is Sony. Its products are very easy to use, and the cosmetics blend in well with the Cayman interior. The XAV-AX100 includes Apple CarPlay along with Google’s Android Auto, giving the driver a safe way to harness the power of the smartphone while driving. Now, many popular functions such as phone calls, texting, music, navigation and reminders get done almost exclusively via voice control. As you can see in the final pictures, the finished product looks as though it came installed that way from the factory.
Backup Camera Eliminates Blind Spot
If you have ever driven a Cayman, then you know it has a big blind spot when backing up. Fortunately, we have a solution for it. Our camera system mounts on the lip above the rear license plate in a factory design. The clarity and nighttime visibility are factory grade as well. When it came time to run the wiring, our team designed a securely loomed, quick-release harness and secured it near the factory plugs, making it easy to remove the rear bumper for service.
Reference Standard Installation Quality
Just as important as the product itself is the quality of the installation. Our team uses reference standard methods that meet or exceed those of a vehicle manufacturer. All connections are soldered with protective heat shrink applied. Even the tape we use is made by the same company Porsche specs for its own harnesses. In short, everything we do is designed to give you years of reliable service while improving your driving enjoyment.
