  •   Came by the shop couple of months ago with questions on purchasing a 2007-2009 Porsche.  Bruce gave me some ideas and what to look for.  I looked at several 2007-2009 Carreras and with Bruces info I purchased one in Newport Beach.  Took it to Bruce today who checked it over, we went for an exciting test drive, with the final analysis that it was an extremely well taken care of 2009.  Here is where I will go in the future - Thanks, Bruce

  •   I wanted to take some time to write a review for Autowerkes.  Johnny, Bruce and Phil were kind enough to reset the airbag light on my 996 as a courtesy.  How often do you get anyone to do anything for free?

    I know exactly where I will be taking my car the next time it needs service.  As I told Bruce, I hope to see you guys again but just not THAT often :).

  •   My 987 started smoking. My water pump went out and the car was fuming. I towed it to Bruce, he did a full inspection, tested to make sure I didn't damage anything else, then he found out that I had warranty that would cover it. So I had to towed to the dealer. The bill would have ran me an easy $900. I asked him how much I owed him for the tests and inspection, he told me to be safe and shook my hand and that ended it right there.

  •   We ran out of gas and our Mercedes missed fired initially then smoothed out, he looked at it and said it was ok for us to drive to San Diego and didn't want to charge us for his time.  It is wonderful to see that there are shops like this with great people are still around. We will recommend this shop to all our friends and families in the OC area.

  •   2008 997.1

    You get what you pay for... top notch service from an indi shop that lives and breathes euro sport. These guys pay attention to every little detail. Maintenance and inspection through these guys is better than dealerships. No regrets, definately found my go to shop for anything Porsche related.

    -no haggle no bs
    -only oem or better parts
    -knowledgable staff AND owner
    -straight up PROS

    They stand by their work and I now see why. UNDERSTAND, they're not low budget by any means but quite honestly, if you can afford the vehicles they work on, you can afford their service. Dont hesitate to swing by or give them a call.... hell, these guys will let you pick their brain at no charge and can go on for hours if not days with what they know and do best.

    Bonus, got a mini detail after my 997 was complete. Didnt take advantage of the pickup and drop off though. (I didnt know) lol
