Work has begun on a major project to extend and improve Porsche Centre Sheffield.
Located on Sheffield Road, within easy reach of the city centre, the work is scheduled to take around seven months to complete and demonstrates a major investment in the Porsche brand and in the South Yorkshire and Derbyshire region.
The redevelopment will create an 18-car showroom including a dedicated handover lounge, plus capacity for 38 Porsche Approved Pre-Owned vehicles, twice the number previously displayed. It will see the workshop undergo significant expansion with the creation of an 11-bay workshop as well as two customer Direct Dialogue Service bays, and the valeting facilities will also double in size.
Customers will be able to enjoy a variety of new facilities and improved services including:
- MOT bay
- 11-bay workshop
- Four-wheel alignment bays and ‘driver assist’ calibration bay
- Porsche Direct Dialogue Bay supporting quick, on-the-spot diagnosis
- Executive lounge area
- ‘Kidz zone’ complete with iPads and gaming pod
- ‘Smart Energy’ building management system and full LED lighting
The Centre will continue to offer the full range of Porsche services, including new and Porsche Approved Pre-Owned sales, servicing, parts, a service loan fleet and a full range of Porsche demonstrators. In additional, local delivery and collection will ensure any servicing or repairs are conducted with minimal inconvenience to the customer.
John Tordoff, chief executive of JCT600, said: ‘Having represented Porsche for over 50 years, we are pleased to be working with the prestigious marque to create a state-of-the-art showroom in Sheffield which does justice to the stunning Porsche range.
“The updated showroom facility is a window on the world of the renowned Stuttgart sports car manufacturer that has been fascinating car enthusiasts for 70 years. The redeveloped showroom will complement the existing Porsche Centres in Leeds, Newcastle and Teesside.”
