VANCOUVER, B.C. – OpenRoad Auto Group gathered vintage cars, live stallions, company executives, over 400 VIP guests and a Juno-award winning artist to help open the new home of Porsche Centre Langley.
Despite the fanfare and the luxury surroundings at the modern, 42,000-square foot dealership, though, one vehicle stole the show – a $1.3 million Porsche 918 Spyder.
Porsche Centre Langley opened to the public in last fall and is the Fraser Valley’s first certified Porsche dealership. It is also one of only two Porsche sales and service centres in the Greater Vancouver area.
The May 7 event featured a lineup of vintage Porsches and an exclusive performance by Juno-award winning artist, LIGHTS.
“We congratulate Porsche Centre Langley and its team for the opening of their new point and welcome them to the family,” said Alexander Pollich, president and CEO of Porsche Cars Canada.
“The greater Vancouver area is one of the markets around the country that has helped the brand grow substantially. As such, we are pleased to now offer our customers an address in Langley.”
The store features Porsche’s latest facility design concept and is situated within the Langley Auto Collection, a luxury auto mall owned and operated by OpenRoad which includes dealerships for BMW, MINI, Infiniti, Audi and soon, Jaguar Land Rover.
“We’re thrilled to have been given the opportunity to partner with Porsche Canada to bring one of best brands in the world to the Fraser Valley,” said Christian Chia, president and CEO of OpenRoad Auto Group.
“Our goal is to offer more than just a great Porsche sales and service centre. We’re fully committed to creating new opportunities for motorsports enthusiasts in B.C. while building a unique community of people who are passionate about Porsche’s beautifully engineered, high performance cars and a best-in-class experience.”
