For anyone else who has ever taken their 944 to the Porsche dealer for a timing belt replacement, only to be laughed at and escorted off the premises, good news; Porsche Classic is expanding by adding partners in the US, Japan, UK, Australia, and more.
Porsche Classic partners give owners of older, classic models a feasible option for connection to about 52,000 original parts, repair, restoration services, etc. Each Porsche Classic partner must train their employees according to a program put forth by the automaker, so that if you trust your original 911 to their care, you can rest assured that they will give it the by-the-book attention it deserves.
The first ever Porsche Classic partner appeared in France in 2009, and several partners have been added since, notably in Germany and Thailand. Each partner also has or will have a separate showroom with examples of classic exhibition cars, technical literature pertaining to the various classic models, and up-to-date spare parts. Porsche Classic’s goal is to expand to around 100 global partners.
We’re hoping all this will give the marque and its aficionados unparalleled service and support for long-discontinued yet long-loved models, and help keep the automaker’s cars and legacy where they belong: on the road.
