    The fourth Porsche centre in Scotland, the state-of-the-art facility in Perth joins Edinburgh and Perth, alongside Peter Vardy’s first centre in Aberdeen.

    The new centre features space to display 13 new cars inside, plus a dedicated vehicle handover area. A wide selection of approved pre-owned cars are also available for inspection and test drive.

    The workshop area offers eight ramps and two Direct Dialogue bays, designed to support on the spot diagnosis and consultation. A number of E-Hybrid charging points are also available.

    Customers can enjoy a variety of facilities on top, including a Specification Lounge — which allows visitors to experience the multitude of features and benefits of individual cars — and a hospitality area serving fresh coffee and refreshments. (Related: Scots dealer is BMW No1)

    The new Porsche Centre Perth is more than a point of sale. Its prime position means it is effectively a window into the world of the Stuttgart sports car manufacturer, a company that has fascinated car enthusiasts for 70 years since 1948. And just as Porsche cars embody long-held principles of intelligent performance, so too the new building incorporates cutting edge architectural design and energy efficiency measures.

    "We have created more than 40 full-time positions, all fully Porsche-trained and focused on delivering the Porsche experience. In addition, during the construction period, around 140 additional jobs were supported.”

    The opening of Porsche Centre Perth coincides with first deliveries of new Cayenne. The Porsche Cayenne is the sports car among sports utility vehicles, and the latest, third generation of the successful all-wheel drive, four door sports car is a completely new development, combining typical Porsche performance with everyday versatility.

    Powerful turbocharged engines, a new eight-speed Tiptronic S automatic gearbox, new chassis systems and an innovative display and control concept with total connectivity combine to raise sport and comfort in the new Cayenne to a new level.
