SDAP Opens Porsche Centre Sungai BesiBuying Guides
Porsche Malaysia with partners Sime Darby Auto Performance just opened Porsche Centre Sungai Besi (PCSB), letting the Stuttgart automaker form a firmer foothold in the Malaysian market. We were there during the grand opening celebrations where some new models were also unveiled alongside the new showroom.
The building itself is located along Jalan Sungai Besi, just a few minutes away from the Central Business District and within easy reach from the major highways - Lebuhraya Sungai Besi, North-South Expressway and Smart Tunnel, among others. The building itself represents a RM16 million investment by SDAP and occupies 34,703 square feet that allows for it to accomodate as many as 10 display cars.
It also features a stylish Carrera Lounge, nine service bays, two delivery bays and even a Porsche Pre-Owned car centre. It spans two floors with a large sunlit atrium by the front entrance. There are two dialogue booths for customers to interact with specialists about certain queries they have concerning Porsche or about their vehicle specifically. Special Porsche Tequipment accessories are also available as well, as are Porsche Driver's Selection merchandise.
The Carerra lounge is a first for a Porsche Centre in Malaysia and aims to provide luxury and convenience to new and existing customers. Its Pre-Owned cars come with a minimum two year Porsche Approved Pre-Owned Warranty to go along with its wide selection and hassle-free trade-in programs.
Arnt Bayer, Chief Executive Officer of Sime Darby Auto Performance, said "We are thrilled to be moving in-to the central automotive hub in Kuala Lumpur with the new flagship facility. With this new 3S centre, it is a big step forward for us to provide better service to our customers. Sungai Besi is also the first Porsche Centre in Malaysia that complies to the new Porsche corporate architecture. We look forward to providing customers a complete ownership experience."
The ceremony itself also included the introduction of the facelifted Porsche Cayenne and 911 Targa 4S. A Porsche 918 Spyder hybrid supercar was also brought in for display just for the occasion.
Porsche Centre Sungai Besi is located at 306, Jalan Sungai Besi, 57100 Kuala Lumpur.
