Arnhem in the Netherlands is the location of the world’s first Porsche centre for classic cars.
Porsche, one of the most collectable and desired marque of all sportscars, announced the opening of the first center dedicated to restoring and selling vintage Porsches. By 2018, Porsche intends to open a global network of 100 centers. Locations where new centres are being developed include Australia, Belgium, Canada and the USA. More than 70% of all historic Porsche cars are still on the road. These historic vehicles will be the customer base of Porsche’s future international dealer and service network.
The Porsche Classic Centre Gelderland, just outside of Arnhem/Netherlands, will be offering services for classic cars of all ages from Zuffenhausen. 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 and produce an even more closely knit Porsche Classic network.
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.
Car enthusiasts 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. The Porsche Classic Partners will be setting up a separate area for this purpose with classic vehicles on display and current spare parts together with technical literature and information.
