Showcasing some of the greatest sports cars in the world is the brand new, 24,000 square foot Porsche Centre situated on Wellington Road, Aberdeen. Opened on 12 October 2015, inside the Centre there are 25 stunning Porsche models, along with a selection of Peter Vardy’s personal collection of classics, including a 1966 911S and 1957 356A.
The Centre offers customers a state-of-the art experience where they can fully customise their Porsche while relaxing in the stylish customer lounge, complete with full internet access, privacy booths and a bespoke customer bar area with La Spaziale Barista coffee machine.
Customers can bring their Porsche to the Centre for its regular service or MOT and make the most of the unique Direct Dialogue Bays where they can watch their Porsche being individually cared for by Porsche-trained Technicians, while the cutting-edge workshop boasts 100% more capacity.
A children only area has been created where kids can enjoy a custom built driving simulator of the iconic Porsche 911 with a PS4 driving game and there is also a tyre challenge.
CEO Peter Vardy commented, “This is a stunning space which reflects the hard work and passion of the architects, builders, and the Peter Vardy team. We couldn’t find a centre good enough for this brand, so we built our own. I only hope it would make Ferry Porsche proud.”
The £6 million project has brought additional jobs to the area, with additional sales, aftersales and support staff to manage the prestige new Porsche Centre. This is one of four major build projects the Vardy business has brought to the Aberdeen area in recent years.
Over the next 18 months, the group will have invested over £30million in build projects and new motor dealerships, creating more than 150 long term jobs and over 500 short term jobs. The business is one of the fastest growing motor retail groups in Scotland and now employs over 765 people.
