Sime Darby Auto Performance (SDAP), the authorised importer of Porsche vehicles in Malaysia, officially opened the new 3S Porsche Centre Penang on 16th March 2017.
The brand new centre is strategically located along Jalan Baru in Seberang Perai, Penang’s automotive hub, and is easily accessible from Penang Island via the first bridge.
With an investment of over RM15 million, the new facility occupies a build-up area of 35,575 sq ft on 102,524 sq ft of land.
The company said the state-of-the-art centre is a prominent addition to the development of the brand in Malaysia and will substantially improve the customer experience in the northern region.
“We are thrilled to be moving into Penang with our third Porsche Centre in Malaysia.
“This new 3S Porsche Centre will enable us to deliver a higher level of customer satisfaction and a unique ownership experience for all Porsche owners and enthusiasts in the northern region,” said SDAP CEO Arnt Bayer.
The new facility has two air conditioned dialogue bays and a spacious after sales reception, integrated with the exclusive Carrera Lounge.
The workshop features nine service bays as well as a warehouse for spare parts, and the showroom can display up to 10 cars.
In addition, customers can browse through the Porsche Driver’s Selection shop with a selection of the latest apparel, personal accessories and toys.
“SDAP has been our sole and exclusive importer in Malaysia since 2010 and continuously invested into the Porsche brand, with special dedication to state-of-the-art facilities and best skilled people.
“I strongly believe in the long-term potential for Porsche in Malaysia and I am convinced that this latest addition to the Porsche dealer network will support our growth path and assure an outstanding customer experience,” said Porsche Asia Pacific managing director Martin Limpert.
