JCT600 to open first Porsche 'satellite' Centre in York

Porsche Centre York

JCT600 will begin development work on a new type of Porsche showroom in York early next year.

The 'satellite' Centre is designed to support its larger, parent Porsche Centre in Leeds, so the new showroom and workshop in York is consequently smaller with space for four cars and a service department with eight work bays.

It will be the dealer group’s fifth Porsche showroom and is the first 'satellite' Porsche Centre in the UK.

Work is due to start in mid-January and the new dealership is expected to open its doors in September 2021.

Located on the A1237/A64 outer ring road at Nether Poppleton, within reach of the A59 and the A19, the new 567-square-metre showroom will be designed in the latest ‘Destination Porsche’ corporate identity.

It will will feature a boutique showroom, including a dedicated handover lounge and electric vehicle display, plus capacity for up to 25 Porsche Approved Pre-Owned vehicles.

The workshop will include a customer Direct Dialogue Service bay, wheel alignment bay and specialist EV diagnostic bay, as well as on site car preparation facilities.

In additional, local delivery and collection will ensure any servicing or repairs are conducted with minimal inconvenience to the customer.

John Tordoff, chief executive of JCT600, says: “Having represented this iconic marque since 1967, we are proud to be one of its longest standing dealer partners in the UK and also to have developed our relationship to offer five Porsche Centres, bringing one of the world’s most sought-after sports car brands to even more customers across Yorkshire and the North East.

“We expect Porsche Centre York to be extremely popular, enabling people from the city and further afield to more easily view the full range of vehicles, and complementing the existing Porsche Centres in Leeds, Sheffield, Newcastle and Teesside.”
