Porsche is treating the program as a pilot, so expansion to other regions is likely contingent on its early performance. Granted, that's still a good chunk of change, but considering you'll have access to several different versions of every vehicle in Porsche's main lineup, which includes both the 911 and Panamera, whenever you want, it's remarkably affordable. The old-school model of owners buying or leasing their cars isn't seeming very 21st century anymore. (PCNA) today introduced Porsche Passport, a new sports auto and SUV subscription program, which provides members flexible access to Porsche vehicles via a mobile app. For instance, along with vehicle tax and registration, Porsche will be covering both insurance and maintenance.

Porsche Passport is offered in two membership plans, "Launch" and "Accelerate".

"Our Strategy 2025 vision is to be the most aspirational brand in a new era of mobility and consumer expectations", said Porsche North America CEO Klaus Zellmer. "With Porsche Passport, we now offer our customers a simple and flexible driving solution at their fingertips". The "Launch" tier starts at $2,000 a month and includes access to eight model variants that include the 718 Boxster and Cayman S, as well as the Macan S and Cayenne.

New Android Wear 2.0 Features Can Now Arrive Via Play Store
With Android Wear 2 .0, new features can be delivered through the Play Store, when the Android Wear app on your watch is updated. This shouldn't really be a big deal thanks to a feature that was introduced in the Android Wear 2 .0 update.

Actually using Porsche Passport will be done through the new app, available in Android and iOS versions. Upon approval, vehicles deliveries may commence anywhere in the metro-Atlanta area beginning November 2017.

Assuming you're approved on both, subscribers will be able to choose their preferred vehicle in the app, and set up their same-day or future scheduled deliveries.

The new subscription service comes as part of collaboration between the German automaker and the Atlanta-based software startup Clutch Technologies LLC. According to a report from Bloomberg, Porsche is launching an intriguing new subscription program that will enable auto aficionados to get behind the wheel of various Porsche vehicles for relatively little money - with relatively, of course, being the operative word.
