Does anyone know if NFC will be available as an optional extra? With Apple introducing the ability to unlock cars via CarPlay & NFC this would be a nice feature to have instead of the comfort access which compromises security; or so I’ve heard

I thought it’s standard? At least in the turbo I test drove. There is a pouch under center armrest with NFC

Isn’t that the wireless charger? The NFC chip would have to been close to the outside of the vehicle such as on the B pillar for any communication to occur from outside the vehicle

NFC for opening the car would be nice! I did some googling and didn’t find any reference to it with the taycan or Porsche in general, sadly.

Bmw is now working with Apple to implement appleCarkey.
Hopefully VW group and Porsche will follow fast.
