Porsche is tapping into its heritage by opening the world’s first Porsche Classic Center in the Netherlands.
Set to open tomorrow, Porsche Classic Center Gelderland will focus exclusively on sales and service of classic models. Porsche plans to open a number of other Classic Centers across the globe and the company is considering locations in Australia, Belgium, Canada, and the United States.
Since more than seventy percent of Porsche models are still running today, the company will also expand the Porsche Classic Partners network so it includes about 100 locations by 2018. Many of these locations will be traditional Porsche dealerships with additional support and training for work on older sports car. They will provide repair and maintenance work on classic models as well as partial and complete overhauls. The stores will also give customers access to approximately 52,000 original spare parts.
To help distinguish them from traditional dealerships, Porsche Classic Partner stores will have a separate area for classic cars. This section will have classic vehicles and parts on display as well as knowledgeable staff that can help with questions from customers.
The company already has 24 Porsche Classic Partners and the majority are located in Germany.
