Porsche claim that more than 70 per cent of the vehicles they’ve ever produced are still running today. So to ensure that these classic cars receive optimum support and overhaul facilities, Porsche has begun establishing an international dealer and service network dedicated to past models. The first Porsche Classic Centre has just opened in Gelderland, just outside of Arnhem/Netherlands, and offering services for classic cars of all ages from Zuffenhausen, with some 100 centres to reach completion by 2018, including Australia.
This network 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 following a special training program. Porsche customers and potential customers can expect the complete range of Porsche Classic services from the 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. Porsche Classic Partners will be equipped with special tools and model-specific repair instructions to guarantee a uniformly high standard of quality at all Classic Centres.
