Our Top Rated Porsche Shop Services Include:
Our comprehensive inspection is something that we offer to all new customers, so that we can get to know their Porsches and provide them with a list of everything that we see is needed to make their car perform as it should. For this inspection we start with a test drive during which we note everything that may feel “off” about the vehicle, as well as everything that is not working properly. After the test drive we put the vehicle on the rack and look for any worn or broken parts on the vehicle as well as leaks that the vehicle may have.
