Vintage Excellence is a specialty shop that takes restoration to an artisanal level. For the person who wants the absolute finest quality possible. An appointment only shop, we are small and do not keep normal business hours, unfortunately our shop is not for everyone. Once we connect on a transaction you will get our undivided attention, access to 25+ years of knowledge/experience on air cooled Porsches. All our clients become good friends over time. We are focused on retailing our fully restored cars, consultation on purchases/restorations - local or worldwide. Pre Purchase Inspections. Occasional consignments.
The difference - top quality or rare cars, fully vetted, sorted & serviced, ready for the new owner. Our strengths include authenticity knowledge, proper restoration experience, and an ability to avoid all problem cars. The car you buy from us will be prepared by the most experienced people in the Porsche restoration business. Excellent quality takes a very large amount of time to get done, therefore inventory is very limited. We do not have an assembly line of low cost laborers who only learned their trade recently. We favor high quality over volume.

Paint is a difficult task, the most important and the restorer in charge of the job must work closely with the painter in order to harmonize efforts. This guy delivers the quality I require and I thank him for putting up with my crazy requirements.
These old engines are made very well but at their current age competent machine work is required. Dennis has genius level air cooled abilities!
Thomas has been trimming Porsches & exotic European cars for over 30 years. He does Pebble beach cars and lucky for us he finds time to do our work.
Joe has 60 years metalworking experience - 45 years of that was working on Porsches from when they were new! Joe has forgotten more about a Porsche 911 chassis than most will ever know. A true Jedi Master of the metal craft.
Terry has been manufacturing rubber since the 1970s. While he specialized in 356 for a long time our shop is one of the first to convince him to do more 911 and 912 specialty stuff. Many of his prototypes are fitted with our cars. https://im356-911.com
Driving in Auckland with Mark my New Zealand based client in the 1972 Porsche 911T/E I sold him a year before. This man lives in the next town over from where my Mum grew up, we are now great friends.
Dieter flew out to see a 930 cabriolet, he has since visited when in town and attended local car shows with us numerous times.

David from Australia bought one 912 from me and then decided he should buy another one, second one he flew out with his wife to tour Southern California in. Nothing beats arriving and driving your own Porsche in a foreign land.
Now residing on one of the Palm Islands this 1972 Porsche 911 surely gets noticed by the locals as definitely something different. The buyer visited my shop, bought the car and then ordered a very special Air Conditioning system for the desert heat.
Steve takes his Porsche collection very seriously and this immaculate rare Golden Green 912 fit the bill for the perfectionist

Bob was looking at Pebble Beach cars on Ocean's Avenue when he walked past our perfect 1973 911E targa, having a dream to buy one 40 years before he was instantly taken back - bought the car on the spot and could not be happier
A NFL team doctor wanted more power in the 1972 911T he bought from us, so we built a 2.7L RS engine for him
