Porsche opens its first centre for classic cars image

The first Porsche Classic Centre is just about to open outside of Arnhem, Netherlands, which will provide support for sports cars of earlier eras in addition to the current models.

Starting from Today, Porsche has opened its first Classic Centre, which would be offering services for classic cars of all ages from Zuffenhausen plant. This is the first time that service, workshop and sales exclusively for the classic sports cars have been brought together under one roof. A small number of additional certified Porsche Classic Centres are set to follow around the world. Porsche plans to establish an international dealer and service network with some 100 centres to reach completion by 2018. This mainly involves Porsche centres which will provide support for sports cars of earlier eras in addition to the current models and will be certified as Porsche Classic Partners. These services will not only include the supply of some 52,000 original spare parts, complete and partial overhauls but also repair and maintenance work and the sale of classic cars.

At present, the network comprises 24 Porsche Classic Partners around the world. Ten of them are in Germany, the others in Estonia, France, the United Kingdom, Italy, Japan, Switzerland, Hungary, South Africa, Thailand and the United Arab Emirates. Locations where new centres are being developed include Australia, Belgium, Canada and the USA. The Porsche Classic Partners offer customers with their historic Porsche vehicles a local contact who combines service and advice with expertise. To ensure the best possible level of service and repair, Porsche Classic Partners are equipped with special tools and model-specific repair instructions.
