Porsche passion is a visceral palpable sensation when you get behind the wheel. 

Porsche's iconic history and heritage has built an amazing brand and loyal base of customers.  What I love about my job is the customers and building that relationship. Hearing the Porsche stories and engaging with the customers is such an amazing aspect to the Porsche brand.

 

My favorite Porsche is the 2011 Speedster - the limited-edition comeback to the original 356 Speedster. From the 356 to the iconic 911 - Porsche surpasses itself every time.

Porsche passion is culture. Culture to imagine, culture of exceptional craftmanship, a culture of racing performance.

Porsche focuses on experience and personalization for each customer. It a timeless brand because everyone appreciates and loves the past, present and future of the Porsche.

One of the truly amazing aspects of Porsche is the community. The customers and fan race base are loyal enthusiasts. I feel very fortunate to be part of assisting customers build their Porsche to their specifications and take ownership of that Porsche months later.

Mason Gilchrist
Sales Associate
949-203-1681

Mason was born and raised in Seattle, and was struck with the Porsche bug at an early age. After his dad purchased a Cayman S, he was hooked, and knew he wanted to be a part of the legendary Porsche brand.

Upon graduating from college, he decided against pursuing a career in Physical Therapy, and secured a job as a lot attendant at a Porsche dealer. In just six months, Mason worked his way up to service advisor, where he enjoyed representing the brand and interacting with its clients. But after several years there, sunny Southern California called, and he was able to continue working for the brand he'd grown to love.

Throughout his time with Porsche, Mason has become a Porsche Certified Brand Ambassador, as well as a Porsche Classic Service Advisor, and counts the 993 C4S in Guards Red and 991 GT3 RS in Riviera Blue as some of his favorite example of the iconic marque. In his off time, you'll find him playing basketball and filming car videos.

Mark Sternberg
Sales Associate
(949) 668-6353

Mark is passionate about helping his customers, but at his core, he's a die-hard car nerd. He has worked in the automotive industry as a journalist, at the manufacturer level and even at one of the world's most prestigious automotive museums.

 

As far as he can tell, his family has been in the car business for as long as there've been cars; so naturally his roots with Porsche go back to before he was born. Here's a fun fact: If you look closely at the Porsche 944 which famously starred in Sixteen Candles, you'll notice a license plate frame which reads 'Norb Kornak Porsche.' Norb was Mark's grandfather who owned a Porsche dealership in Aurora, Ill when John Hughes shot the now-classic film.

Jon Lewis
Service Advisor
949-668-6361

Porsche passion is only accepting the best. . . no compromise.

 

My favorite Porsche is the 959. It was the first road car to have adaptive suspension and tire pressure monitoring - incredible feat in 1986. I also love the fact the Porsche will never adapt to a push button start like the other car makers. Porsche will always have a turn key start an essential element to the driving experience. 

 

I love my job. I get to represent the best brand and interact with passionate Porsche customers. I have spent 23 years in the highline automotive industry. I'm thrilled to be part of the exciting future of Porsche.
