Alpine will soon be selling its Apple Carplay compatible head units.

My assumption about installing one of these units in a 981 is that by doing so, one would lose all the functionality of the Porsche Infotainment system: Navigation, Radio, CD, Jukebox, USB, etc.

Would you agree? I am not educated about how the Airplay units integrate existing infotainment system functions (if they integrate functions at all).

I think that would be a certainty -- I'd bet that, like other head unit replacements, even your mutli-function steering wheel would stop functioning unless you bought an appropriate adapter. You may also want to search around here, because there were a few people that installed aftermarket head units and their car would display an annoying system malfunction error every time they started it up. I think the fix was to leave parts of the original head unit intact.
