A new Porsche Centre has opened this week in York.
This latest addition to the UK network is designed to support its larger, parent Porsche Centre in Leeds.
The 6,100 sq ft showroom and workshop in York offers space for four cars and a service department with six work bays.
Working together with the team at Porsche Centre Leeds, the ‘satellite’ Centre in York will enable Porsche to better serve its customers in the region, in particular by expanding the after-sales capacity as the appeal of its range grows.
Starting last winter, the construction work took around nine months to complete.
Porsche Centre York is close to the city centre at York Business Park on the A1237 outer ring road at Nether Poppleton, within easy reach of the A59 and A19.
There is capacity to display up to 25 Porsche approved pre-owned vehicles. Customers will be able to enjoy a variety of services and support facilities including:
- Six bay workshop
- MOT bay
- Four-wheel alignment bay and ‘driver assist’ calibration bay
- Porsche Direct Dialogue Service bay to support quick, on-the-spot diagnosis
- Dedicated electric vehicle charging bays
- Executive lounge area
The centre also offers a service loan fleet and Porsche demonstrators.
John Tordoff, chief executive of JCT600, said: “The opening of Porsche Centre York is another key milestone in our 50 year-plus relationship with this coveted and iconic marque, marking the fifth Porsche Centre we have brought to customers in the region.
“Continued and growing demand for the Porsche range of beautiful, high-performance sports cars has led to the development of Centres in Leeds, Sheffield, Newcastle and Teesside, accessible to people across Yorkshire and the North East.
“As one of the German company’s longest standing sales partners in the UK, we are particularly proud that Porsche Centre York reflects the latest architectural design, enabling customers to enjoy the benefits of state-of-the-art facilities in a stylish setting.”
