Porsche has opened its first ‘Classic Centre’ in The Netherlands, which aims to be a one-stop-shop for all things Porsche - or should we say, classic Porsche.
Potential owners can not only browse a range of pre-loved and factory-approved Porsche models, but then treat the Centre as they would a dealer once they’ve made a purchase.
That means returning to the Centre to have their ‘new’ pride and joy serviced or repaired when the time comes, or perhaps even trading up to that other classic Porsche in the future (the one they really wanted in the first place…).
Porsche says this is the first time such a service has been offered ‘under one roof’, and is the first of a small number of Classic Centres planned for around the world.
The carmaker also says that more than 70 percent of all the vehicles it has ever built are still running today, and it intends making a greater effort to keep them running and 'on the road' in the best possible condition.
Besides the Classic Centres, Porsche is also planning 100 international dealer and service networks in various markets which will mainly consist of existing dealers.
Some current dealers will be equipped to handle both new and classic Porsche models, and will be certified as Porsche Classic Partners.
The program, which currently consists of 24 Partners in 11 countries (with ten locations in Germany) is scheduled to be rolled out between now and 2018, and includes some 52,000 original spare parts.
And Porsche devotees in Australia can rejoice, we've been earmarked as a future Classic Partners location.
