Sime Darby Auto Performance (SDAP), the authorised importer of Porsche vehicles in Malaysia, has opened the doors to its new Porsche Centre Sungai Besi today. Located at 306, Jalan Sungai Besi, which is minutes away from the central business district, the facility is accessible through the Sungai Besi highway, North South Expressway, Smart Tunnel and other major highways.
With a cost of RM16 million and a total build-up of 34,703 sq ft, the sales, service and spare parts facility is designed to showcase up to 10 cars in the showroom. It is complemented with two vehicle delivery bays, a workshop with nine service bays as well as an after sales reception area that includes two dialogue bays, Porsche Tequipment accessories and a dedicated “shop-in-shop” for Porsche Driver’s Selection merchandise, which offers clothing, accessories, toy products and even car care solutions.
Additionally, the Sungai Besi facility also adds a Carrera Lounge, which is a first for Porsche Centre in the country, and a pre-owned car centre that offers a minimum two years Porsche Approve Pre-Owned Warranty and trade-in programs for existing owners. The centre will also be home to training facilities catered to the technical team as well as to the sales force. All trained personnel will be certified by Porsche AG.
Making special appearance at the opening ceremony was the limited edition Porsche 918 Spyder, which recently achieved a record-breaking lap of 6:57 minutes around the Nurburgring Nordschleife.
