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.
Why I LOVE This Car!

Thought it best to share the driving experience I have with this Panamera.
1. Super quiet. Smooth as silk.
2. Sails like a bird as it climbs 8% grades.
3. Daily drag racing challenges from Audi, BMW, Mercedes, and Mustangs (ha ha ha)!
4. How they will never compare to the 420 Hp machine. (more Ha ha ha!)
5. Excellent sound be it Cardi B or Mozart. All beautiful.
6. The random admirers you encounter standing around staring at your Porsche as you exit Starbucks.
7. Amazing fuel economy.
8. Knowing this model is Porsche's flagship hybrid.
9. Haven't ever ever ever seen another Panamera S e-Hybrid from San Francisco to Orange County although I've seen hundreds of Teslas.
10. It's the best sidekick ever.
