The relentless charge of the EV brigade doesn’t mean your Flachbau will disappear into the distant smog – Porsche is adding another Classic Center to its existing French, Dutch, and Norwegian automotive portfolio…
The first Swiss Porsche Classic Center will celebrate its official opening at the Le Grand-Saconnex location on June 10th following some extensive renovation works and will be the fourth workshop to specialise in the servicing, restoration, sales of classic Porsche vehicles.
Located in Geneva, the latest Porsche Classic Center has an impressive 210 square meter salesroom built specifically for the exhibition of historic Porsche sports cars, while the state-of-the-art workshop four spaces are reserved for historic vehicles, one of which is exclusively for bodywork and restoration.
The Porsche Center Geneva is already known for its professional complete and partial restorations. The range of services offered by the Porsche Classic Center also includes maintenance and repair work. The spare parts supply is secured with access to over 60,000 original parts. In addition to the showroom, visitors can also tour the workshop.
Michael Glinski, CEO of Porsche Schweiz AG:
“Historic sports cars of our brand have a high priority in Switzerland – and have been since the earliest years of the Porsche company: The first series sports car from Porsche was delivered to a customer from Zurich. There are currently around 17,000 Porsche classics registered in Switzerland. The team in Geneva has always done an excellent job in the Classic area, which is now unparalleled with the conversion and certification to the Classic Center.”
