Peter Vardy has opened its new purpose built £6 million Porsche showroom in Aberdeen.
The 24,000 square foot showroom on Wellington Road has space for 25 vehicles inside, along with space for some of Peter Vardy’s personal collection of classics, including a 1966 911S and 1957 356A.
The showroom has a customer lounge where people can customise their Porsche, there’s free wifi, privacy booths, La Spaziale Barista coffee machine and a children’s area with 911 simulator, Sony PS4 and removable tyre challenge.
The service department has “direct dialogue” bays which let customers watch their Porsche being serviced by technicians.
Peter Vardy, chief executive, said: “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 dealership good enough for this brand, so we built our own. I only hope it would make Ferry Porsche proud.”
The business has taken on additional sales, aftersales and support staff to manage the dealership.
This is one of four major build projects Peter Vardy has brought to the Aberdeen area, including a new Jaguar Land Rover dealership due in late 2016, and the recently completed Vauxhall showroom on Lang Stracht.
Over the next 18 months, Peter Vardy will have invested over £30 million in build projects and new dealerships, creating more than 150 long term jobs and over 500 short term jobs.
