See, look at the building process that is required to upgrade / transform the
Chapelgate Porsche Dealership in to the corporate

























New Porsche Centre Bournemouth now open

We are delighted to announce that the new Porsche Centre showroom - now called Porsche Centre Bournemouth, is complete.

The new look Porsche dealership, reflecting an extremely distinctive styling that is taking place throughout Porsche Centres world wide, has been carefully designed to provide the appropriate destination their customers and the outstanding Porsche product range now available.

The building development process reflects the painstaking attention to detail that Porsche applies to the engineering development of its product. Every material and colour was carefully selected to meet a specific purpose in the new building.

The new Centre includes an enhanced nine car showroom. In addition, the Porsche Approved used car area outside can display up to twenty cars. The new, Porsche dedicated ten bay workshop is fully equipped with the latest state-of-the-art equipment and technology and significantly increases the capacity for servicing customers’ cars, while two detached valeting bays substantially enhances the vehicle preparation facilities.

Service handover is also enhanced by a key feature of the newly designed Porsche Centres - the Direct Dialogue Bay. This is a dedicated work bay, visible through a glass partition from the service reception, where a customer’s car can be placed on a ramp to aid discussion. This allows customers to more easily discuss any concerns with their car, as well as providing an opportunity to talk through service options in a consultative manner with a technician.

Brian Deeks MD said “the scheme represents a substantial investment in the business and the future of the Porsche brand in the region. This has created an increase of 5 additional positions, bringing the total number of in the dedicated Porsche team to 44.”

“We in association with Porsche Cars Great Britain, with the new 911 (997) launched September and the new Boxster due in November combined with the tremendously successful Cayenne range we are confident our location now has all the right ingredients to provide the very highest levels of quality service from the most exciting and comprehensive Porsche product range in it’s history.”
