“There are 20,000 Porsche Classic models registered in the country, demonstrating the passion that Canadians share for our brand,” said Marc Ouayoun, President and CEO of Porsche Cars Canada. “With certified Classic Partners located throughout our dealer network, the needs of our customers continue to remain at the core of our focus. We are very happy to welcome Centre Porsche Lauzon to the Porsche Classic Partner family.”
The Porsche Classic Partner program began in 2014, recognizing the many Porsche Centres worldwide who have demonstrated expertise and passion for the many different Porsche Classic models. Today, there are 70 Porsche Classic Partners and three Porsche Classic Centres worldwide. Classic Centres are standalone facilities solely focusing on the sale and maintenance of classic Porsche models.
A Classic Partner achieves certification through completion of several criteria: defined Classic Technicians with factory training courses completed annually, dedicated workshop bays to Classic customer repair work, appointing of a Classic Specialist within the dealership as well as a Classic Corner in the showroom to display news and information. The Classic Specialist has direct access to the Classic experts at Porsche Canada and Porsche AG and can schedule restoration work within the Centre or arrange with the facilities in Atlanta, US or Freiberg, Germany.
The 14 Porsche Classic model variants are the Porsche 356, 911 F, 914, 911 G, 924, 928, 944, 959, 964, 968, 993, 986 Boxster, 996 911 and the Carrera GT. Porsche continues to help ensure the future for these models through the introduction of 300-plus new genuine parts and accessories every year.
Acquiring the Porsche brand in the late 1970s, Groupe Lauzon has been selling and servicing Porsches for more than 40 years. Classic Partner Lauzon is located within Centre Porsche Lauzon at 2455 Boulevard Chomedey, Laval, QC.
