I'll be honest, I hate car dealerships and shopping for cars due to experiences being ignored by sales associates in the past. I think any sales associate should treat each potential buyer equally and provide the same service whether you are a young first time buyer, or spoiling yourself with a nice vehicle during retirement. Thankfully I met Tyson Johnson at Porsche Victoria who made the experience as easy as it could be.
It has been a childhood dream of mine to drive a Porsche and I almost pulled a trigger on an '82 911 SC about 15 years ago but decided at the time that it would be a lot more work than I expected. I was in the market for a newer car and had visited the Porsche Langley dealership and had an unfortunate experience there... thankfully Porsche Victoria had a build that was similar to what I wanted and I contacted Tyson as a cold call. From the beginning he was respectful, timely, and took me seriously when I told him that I was going to be making a decision very quickly and when I told him what I was looking for.
There was no "car salesman" speech and Tyson definitely has a passion for the Porsche brand. I would recommend Porsche Victoria and Tyson to anyone who is in the market for a Porsche (or any other car they may have on their lot) and wants to have a stress-free experience. Their out of town program provides great value even if it means taking the time and money to make the ferry ride over.
Sales manager Jason Mui was also a pleasure to deal with, as was Adam Lee who helped when I was discussing the financing of the vehicle.
