Although I didn't end up purchasing a vehicle from STA, I'm happy to have discovered them. Jonathan took care of me right away, and allowed me to fully test the Cayenne GTS that drew me to the dealer.
Things to note -
This 3rd party dealer specializes in Porsche sales and repairs, that means they have a great inventory of older to newer Porsche's for sale and a full mechanic shop on site.
So why not 5 stars overall?
Well, unfortunately the GTS they had wasn't in the best shape and clearly needed some TLC before being shown for sale (car parts in the trunk, battery dead, ash tray stuck open). Now this could have been due to bad timing on my part but still - if you are going to specialize in Porsche sales and charge at the higher end of the cars value then the cars on the lot need to exude the German values the brand is known for. That being said I have my eyes on future offerings from this dealer and hope something wows me into a sale next time.
Our salesman Brandon Raap was excellent and very knowledgeable. We felt very comfortable at this dealership and were treated fairly. All promises were kept and the Manager was very courteous. Overall this was an exceptional experience and we will definitely purchase from this dealership again.
After a terrible experience at Rusnak! I had the car there(Rusnak Service Dept." for 5 days with an appointment before they did a "Check Engine Light" Like.. come-on! Really!? I decided to take my Porsche out of there and called Porsche Downtown in L.A. and made an appointment for tomorrow morning with Andy Acevedo Service Advisor. Great guy! I dropped my car the next day and they gave me a beautiful loaner. Which Rusnak never offered me the last four times I had brought my 991. I received a call from Andy around 2 p.m. and told me they replaced a defective engine thermostat and the vehicle was ready for pickup! Like Wow!
THANK ANDY AND L.A. PORSCHE FOR THE GREAT SERVICE!
I've never experienced service like this from a car dealership. I'm still in shock and I bought the car 3 days ago! Alex, was truly committed to making sure I walked out with a great car that wouldn't break the bank. I never financed a car before in my life, so I didn't have good credit to finance. Alex, called around and worked out a deal, 4 hours later I financed my first car and drove home a fully loaded 2016 Ford Explorer. Walking into a dealership being a female is very intimidating, but I didn't feel that way at Platinum Autohaus. I would HIGHLY recommend them to anyone and everyone. Thank you Alex!!
I recently bought a 991.1 S Cabriolet from Sports Trend and could not be more satisfied with the experience. Randy was great to work with and handled everything in a professional and efficient manner. He was very upfront in describing the vehicle and negotiating price, and treated me fairly on both counts. This was an online transaction with the vehicle shipping sight unseen to RI, so I very much appreciated the high level of integrity I found in Randy, the good communication at every step in the process, and how everything went fine with no surprises or anything unexpected at any point. Thanks to Ash as well for taking care of the paperwork and getting everything out quickly. Would highly recommend and would definitely shop here again.
I had a GREAT experience! I’ve been to a ton of dealerships and have had my fair share of experiences and none of them compared to my excellent experience at Sports Trend. Ron and his team are reputable and go above and beyond for their customers. Their cars are excellent, service is superb, and prices are unbeatable. Well worth the two-hour drive. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND them and will be a life long customer.
I found my sales person (Glen) to be very attentive and knowledgeable. He was personable, accessible, and worked late into a Friday evening to address our concerns. The dealership kindly accepted our offer knowing that they were accepting less than than the true value of the car. Every aspect of our purchase was A-plus. We did all of the transaction via telephone and shipped the car to Albuquerque. They were even kind enough to fix small wheel issues as good will. This was totally unexpected and greatly appreciated. This car was purchased for our son who is in college. He (we) hopes to hit it big in the film industry. He is a car nut and Beverly Hills Porsche will (and deserves) his future business. Thank you.
I have been searching for the right Porsche 911 for myself. Sports Trend had the largest Porsche inventory. They literally had over 30 911's in stock. They had the right 911for me and took care of the financing. No pressure, and very accommodating. I would diffenetly recommend Sports Trend to anyone looking for a Porsche.
John is very helpful I asked him what I needed to buy a car with no hassle just walk in and sign and he gave me a killer deal im still working with him trying to save up the cash for the down but they are amazing over there
Tred was a great experience,for the test drive they had the owner of the car come meet me and he showed me the car and comfortably let me drive the car however I wanted. It was one of the best car experiences I’ve had!!!
Leased a 2018 White on Red Panamera from Porsche of DTLA on 12/15/17 the sales person Roger and the manager Johnathan made everything easy for me from A to Z. Hands down the best Porsche Dealership I've ever been to.
I can't speak highly enough about this establishment. Chris and Tyler were especially courteous and made our buying experience the best we've ever had from a car dealership. In case you're thinking, "Duh, when you buy something that expensive, they have to kiss your @$$," we bought a used Jeep for less than 30K. They're just good people, regardless of who you are or what you're buying.
Truly caring and friendly service. The Techs in the garage are some of the best.
Thanks as always,
