Official importer of Porsche vehicles in Malaysia, Sime Darby Auto Performance, has officially opened Porsche Centre Penang – the country’s third such centre after Sungai Besi and Glenmarie. Located on the mainland in Seberang Perai, Porsche Centre Penang is a 3S (sales, service, spares) centre accessible from Penang Island via the first Penang Bridge.
“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 chief executive officer of Sime Darby Auto Performance Arnt Bayer.
The RM15 million facility resides upon 102,524 sq ft of land, with a built-up area of 35,575 sq ft. It has space to accommodate up to 10 cars in its showroom, while an air-conditioned dialogue reception area features two bays and an after-sales reception area, including an integrated Carrera Lounge. The workshop features nine service bays, with a warehouse for parts on location as well.
A variety of merchandise can be purchased from the Porsche Driver’s Selection range, with apparel, personal accessories, toys and even interior furniture (try and spot one in the images) available.
“The new Porsche Centre Penang marks another milestone for the Porsche growth in Malaysia and is a bold statement of SDAP’s commitment. 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 managing director of Porsche Asia Pacific Martin Limpert.
