  • Tim Le
    Brand Ambassador
    (562) 239-2307

    New to the Porsche Brand and McKenna but been in the car business for over 7 years having worked for other highline car manufactures previously

    My Favorite Client story was recently when I was able to help a customer get a Porsche of their dream. Recently I was able to find a guest the perfect 911 with the right options the guest was looking for. We have an extensive inventory of 911 (most dealers do not) and after we looked around we had the guest was presented with their dream car. When I saw the look on their face I knew we had made a fan for life.

    If I were to win the $250 million lotto today what car do they buy? My favorite car is the GT3 so I would get that right away if I had won such a big amount of money. I would get it in black, gray, or a loud bright color and would love to have one because it is exclusive, and nothing sounds like it
