Champion Porsche in Pompano Beach is a very popular car dealership in the South Florida area. Thousands of car buyers know that if they’re looking to buy a Porsche and they want the best customer service possible, they should go directly to Champion Porsche. After all, that’s how they became the largest volume Porsche dealer in North America 25 years ago, a distinction that still holds true today.
One of Champion Porsche’s satisfied customers is our own publisher, Peter Clark, who recently bought a custom Porsche Macan and was very pleased with the professionalism and courtesy exhibited by the dealership’s staff.
I spoke with Manfred Mueller, the salesman who sold Peter his new Porsche, about the cars on sale and how you can customize your own Porsche.
Which Porsche models are the most popular right now?
The 911 is a classic sports car that’s celebrating its 50th anniversary with a special edition. Then there’s the Cayenne, which people pick if they like Porsches but their family is growing and they need to move to a four-seater. Last year Porsche came out with the more compact Macan, which perfectly combines the feel of a sports car with the versatility of an SUV.
How can someone customize their own Porsche?
It’s as easy as going to porscheusa.com and building your car right there. You can pick the model and go through all the features and details, and the website tells you how much each option costs. Then you can print it out and bring it into the dealership. You can also come to me and I’ll go over each option with you and we can build your car together. On average it takes nine to twelve weeks for a car to be built to your specifications and delivered to the dealership.
Why do some drivers choose Porsche over other brands?
A lot of people pick Porsche because they want a sports car they can drive every day. They want comfort but they want something sporty too. They want elegance, but in an understated way. Many people buy Porsches because they accomplished something in their lives, and they want to treat themselves afterwards.
What kinds of compliments have you received from satisfied customers?
Some customers are so thoughtful that they’ve sent “thank you” letters accompanied by gift baskets! But the compliments that mean the most to me are when people refer the dealership to their friends.
