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 superb speed and handling. It takes your daily driving experience to the next level.

Porsche performs like no other car. It has the unique "feel" when you sit behind the wheel of a Macan or 911. There is just something about it that is so different and yet so familiar. The race history and standards of Porsche is what sets Porsche apart from everyone else. Porsche tests every one of its cars on the track.

My favorite Porsche is the Carrera GT with its visceral and distinctive sound. Porsche pushed itself with this car and made a truly amazing sports car.

Porsche passion is life changing. It's the pinnacle of automotive perfection.

There are so many reason Porsche is an exceptional brand but two that really stand out - heritage and engineering design elements - the iconic 911 that is still in production and on the road is a testament to these ideals of Porsche. Where most manufacturers abandon and move on from old designs, not Porsche. They stand out among the crowd and work tirelessly to improve on what they know.  

My dream car is a 911 Turbo S which is the apex of performance and luxury.

I work as a Global Brand Ambassador where I match the perfect Porsche to the needs and desires of each customer. Our client base is extremely diverse, but they all come together for excitement and passion for the brand.

 I love that Porsche has always stayed true to their heritage and craftmanship of design. We focus on quality and refine it to a piece of art - sportscar perfection.

Porsche passion is that sudden rush of excitement when you take a sharp turn and excel. It's thrill, speed, handling and control synthesized into one rush of an emotion.

As a Porsche Certified Brand Ambassador, I get the opportunity each day to build a relationship with clients over cars with rich history and yet new designs. Porsche owners are not your typical car buyers and owners. They are loyal and committed to the brand and it makes selling them enjoyable.

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.

Porsche passion is the feeling that you get sitting in your car - grabbing hold of the controls and becoming part of the vehicle.

Porsche brand is like no other.  Porsche pays close attention to every detail of the manufacturing process while always striving to ensure that every car meets the expectation of the customer.

My absolute favorite model Porsche is the 911 Turbo because it represents not only the racing heritage but the craftsmanship and attention to detail that makes Porsche such an infamous brand. 

Working for Porsche is exciting because I have an intense passion for the technical aspect of the automotive business, and nobody makes a finer machine in this caliber.

Mason Gilchrist
Service Advisor
949-668-6322

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.

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.
