Report: Porsche to debut new HTML5-based infotainment system in 918 Spyder

The integration of wireless and computer technology in automobiles has inevitably been on the rise as automakers have been even ironically including social media and Internet connectivity in the mix. And in an effort to universalize evolving platforms, such as software source codes, word is that Porsche will be utilizing an infotainment system based off of HTML5 Internet coding language for the new 918 Spyder supercar.

According to a report by German auto news outlet, AutoBild, word is the system will be the next best thing in in-car infotainment systems, with emphasis on better smartphone integration and Internet access.

Ergonomically, the new system has also been described to be much easier to use than many systems found today—all of which have their own enigmatic way of operating, some reliably and some not so much.

Additionally, the use of HTML5 adds flexibility to the expansion of the system itself due to HTML5’s intended standardization for the next generation of web browsing and software coding.

Not much else is known, but the Porsche 918 Spyder is due to hit showrooms in 2015, so of course, new information should be trickling its way into the news reel between then and now.
