Baker Motor Company Debuts New Porsche Charleston Facility
Luxuriously Modern, 20,000-square-foot Facility Offers Customers More Inventory, Expanded Service Center
December 19, 2018 – Charleston, SC - Tommy Baker, Owner and President of Baker Motor Company, with award-winning dealerships in Charleston, SC and Wilmington, NC, announced today that the newly constructed Porsche Charleston is officially complete and open to the public. The 20,000-square-foot, two-story dealership is located at 1515 Savannah Highway in Charleston, adjacent to Baker Motor Company’s current Infiniti and Mercedes-Benz dealerships.
For an inside look at the new dealership, a virtual tour through our photo library can be accessed here.
The new standalone Porsche facility, previously located at 1511 Savannah Highway, is ten times larger than the previous dealership and offers 30 percent more Porsche inventory. Porsche Charleston is now a Generation-4 facility and features the brand’s signature glass panel exterior, a customer café, fitting lounge for vehicle customization and audio-visual elements that support full client immersion into the Porsche brand. Popular Porsche vehicles that customers can shop for on-site include the 911, Cayenne, Macan, Cayman, Boxster and Panamera.
“We’re committed to providing the best automotive facilities in the nation right here in Charleston and this facility is our most recent example of that. No detail has been overlooked. Our Porsche clients can enjoy new levels of luxury and modern conveniences at Porsche Charleston,” said Mr. Baker. “Enhancing the customer experience is a part of our DNA so we’re excited to offer a new space that provides a five-star, club-like feel.”
He added, “Porsche is an iconic brand that continues to gain momentum, and we’re thrilled to expand our footprint to provide the unparalleled Porsche experience our clients have come to expect from Baker Motor Company.”
The all-new Porsche Service Center has nearly doubled in size – increasing from seven service bays to 12, in addition to two climate-controlled, indoor reception lanes. Equipped with state-of-the-art equipment and four golden master certified technicians, customers can expect both a first-class sales and service experience. To accommodate the growth in service capacity, Baker Motor Company will also add two technicians to their 9-person team.
To celebrate this new state-of-the-art Porsche facility, Baker Motor Company will host customers and executives from Porsche in early 2019 for a special grand opening event.
