Work has been completed on a new Porsche Centre in Teesside, adding to the 37-strong network in the UK and Ireland.
The Concorde Way centre underwent eight months of redevelopment and opened this month.
The new 35,707sq ft showroom has a capacity for 55 new and pre-owned vehicles.
A nine-bay workshop with a four wheel alignment bay and ‘driver assist’ calibration bay, alongside a Porsche direct dialogue bay, mare all among the additions to the new site.
Customers can enjoy an executive lounge area and a ‘kid’s zone’ complete with iPads and a gaming pod.
JCT600’s chief executive John Tordoff said: “As one of the most prestigious marques in the world, we are proud of our long-established relationship with Porsche. Having spent two years searching for the right site on Teesside to showcase these stunning sports cars, we are pleased to have been able to find this high profile, accessible location which will complement our Leeds, Newcastle and Sheffield Porsche Centres.
“The new Porsche Centre is a stunning building featuring a double height direct dialogue bay in the centre of the showroom with a glass viewing area on the mezzanine level enabling customers to view their vehicles as work is discussed. There is also a first floor owners’ club lounge with a dedicated service reception and an impressive handover bay.
“With its location just off the A66, we look forward to welcoming customers from throughout North Yorkshire and the North East, giving them easier access to sales and servicing of Porsche vehicles.
“The arrival of such a prestigious business has also had many benefits for the region, including creating around 20 new jobs already with more likely as the business grows.”
