Porsche Design GPS navigation system

Porsche Design, the Austrian design house associated with the German sportscar manufacturer, is releasing a new sat-nav system. The über-slick device features Mobile Navigator 6 software by Navigon, a 480 x 272 pixel touch-screen and an Intel XScale 520MHz processor.

In addition to making fast cars, with this gadget, Porsche is keeping its customers from getting lost – now the design-conscious have no excuse for showing up “fashionably late”. (Personally, I'd use it to find the nearest tunnel just to hear that fabled Porsche exhaust note resonate.)

The Porsche Navigon P9611 GPS is sure to look at home on the dashboard of your new 911 Turbo or *shudder* Cayenne SUV.
