Celebrating the Past in the Present with the Porsche Classic Centre

Porsche interlinks tradition and innovation by opening the second Porsche Classic Centre in France

Owning a classic car is like owning a slice of history. While it will be a great pleasure to appreciate the effort spent in creating such a beautiful engineering feat, maintaining or getting spare parts for it however will prove to be a great challenge as it has long left the production lines.

 

Recognising the growing passion for their classic cars, Porsche had launched a new service called the Porsche Classic Centre which offers a full range of services for their beloved classics. The launch of their first centre in Gelderland, Netherlands, last year was a huge success and Porsche had recently opened the second Porsche Classic Centre in a celebratory fashion in Rouen, France.

The concept of this centre showcases Porsche’s ability to integrate maintenance and value retention of modern and older classics into a single innovative service concept. The opening of their new centre in France brings the number of the Porsche Classic Partners up to 44 which could be found across 17 countries.

 

It may sound ambitious to some for a manufacturer to offer services to cars that they no longer make, but the fact that more than 70 per cent of all Porsche vehicles ever made are still roaming on the roads today is more than enough for Porsche to proceed with this concept.

“The retention of classic and modern vehicles from our brand is one of the very best examples of true sustainability. The permanent availability of spare parts and retention of the skills needed to repair and restore these vehicles are important facets of value retention,” said Ingo Frankel, Vice President Customer Centre for Porsche.
