A nine-month project to extend and improve Porsche Centre Newcastle has been completed on schedule with customers now able to enjoy the larger showroom and enhanced service facilities.
This expansion enables a wider range of new and Porsche Approved Pre-Owned sports cars to be showcased at Porsche Centre Newcastle as well as providing a larger capacity workshop to support service and customer care.
The work, which began at the end of July 2018, is a further demonstration of the Porsche brand’s commitment to the North East following the opening of a brand-new Porsche Centre in Teesside in May 2017.
Located close to the city centre at Silverlink Retail Park, Wallsend, Porsche Centre Newcastle now features a 16-car showroom including a dedicated handover lounge, plus capacity for 23 Porsche Approved Pre-Owned vehicles to be displayed. As part of the redevelopment, the workshop has been expanded and now features two customer Direct Dialogue Bays, and the valeting facilities have doubled in size.
Customers will now benefit from a variety of new facilities and improved services including:
- Nine-bay workshop
- MOT bay
- Four-wheel alignment bays and ‘Driver Assist’ calibration bay
- Two Porsche Direct Dialogue Bays supporting quick, on-the-spot diagnosis
- Electric vehicle dedicated bays charging or workshop?
- Executive lounge area
- ‘Kidz zone’ complete with iPads and gaming pod
- ‘Smart Energy’ building management system and full LED lighting
The Centre continues to offer the full range of Porsche services, including new and Porsche Approved Pre-Owned sales, a full range of Porsche demonstrators, servicing, parts and a service loan fleet. In addition, local delivery and collection ensures any servicing or repairs are conducted with minimal inconvenience to the customer.
John Tordoff, Chief Executive of JCT600, says: “Having represented the iconic Porsche marque for over 50 years, we are very proud of our continuing relationship with one of the world’s most sought-after sports car brands.
“Customers from across the North East can now enjoy the very latest facilities at the enhanced Porsche Centre Newcastle. This complements the recently redeveloped and improved Porsche Centre Sheffield as well as the ever-popular Centre in Leeds. All of these showrooms offer a full range of models for customers to see and drive, from the Porsche Cayenne and Porsche 911, to the latest Porsche Macan and Porsche 718 Cayman.”
