Porsche Centre Penang, Malaysia

By Dr Long

For a luxury and premium sportscar brand like Porsche, it has been quite a pain for the northern region owners and owners-to-be to come over to Kuala Lumpur to purchase as well as to service their prized possessions. Not anymore since the launch of Porsche Centre Penang on 19th May 2007.

The event was kicked off on the 18th May with a convoy of Porsches supported by Porsche Club Malaysia driving from Porsche Centre Glenmarie to Porsche Centre Penang. Members of the media meanwhile, were transported in Naza Ria MPVs from Glenmarie to Juru-Auto City in Seberang Perai, Penang.

This is the first and only authorised dealer for Porsche out of the Klang Valley in Malaysia, owned and run by the Naza Group via Naza Premier Auto Sdn Bhd. Porsche models ranging from the Boxster, Cayman, Cayenne and the iconic 911 series, are now officially available for sale as well as after-sales service in Penang, while also serves as a hub for other northern states.

“The primary focus of this showroom is to create a true Porsche feeling for current and potential customers without having to travel the distance” said Tan Sri Dato’ Seri SM Nasimuddin SM Amin, Chairman of Naza Group of Companies.

To commemorate and continue the ‘Momentum’ campaign, Porsche Centre Penang unveiled the new Porsche Cayenne for the northern region. This was in continuation to the recent new Cayenne launch at the Bukit Kiara Equestrian and Country Resort, Kuala Lumpur. After introduction of the sports SUV, Dato’ Seri Rafidah Aziz (Minister of International Trade and Industry) accompanied by Tan Sri Dato Seri Utama SM Nasimudin (CEO, Naza Group of Companies), Dato Mokhzani (Chairman, Jaseri Automotive Group) and Mr. Christer Ekberg (Managing Director Porsche Asia Pacific), conducted a ribbon cutting ceremony and declared Porsche Centre Penang officially opened.

The showroom hours are from 9.00am – 8.00pm on Mondays to Saturdays and 11.00am – 4.00pm on Sundays. The service workshop operates from 8.30am – 5.00pm from Mondays to Fridays and 8.30am – 1.00pm on Saturdays.
