What we do ?
It would be easier to list what we cannot do for your Porsche, as in a word, nothing is too complex or beyond our technical ability.
We take a great pride in our technical expertise, which stands us out from our competitors. Our workshop facility is equipped with full fabrication facilities, to include manufacture and modification of parts, welding facilities, including TIG and MIG for all materials and our engine and gearbox building. We have a state of the art four-wheel alignment bay, that can calibrate suspension settings from OE factory settings, or fast road/track, to full race with corner-weighting. A brake disc lathe can skim brake discs on the vehicle, which can save considerably on the cost of full replacement. Air conditioning checks and re-gas can also be performed. We are equipped with specialist tyre fitting equipment, and balancing facility that is necessary for ultra low-profile performance tyres fitted to Porsche, we also have a good stock of the most popular sizes, and can supply the track specific, Michelin, Pirelli and Dunlop compounds
We can manage accident repairs, although the spray painting is not carried out on-site, (we contract this out to the local Porsche Approved Repairer) all the repair, dismantling and expert reassembly is carried out on-site. This is the difference that you can expect from our technicians, we are fanatical about the correct panel fit, the correct fixings, assembly methods that mirror the factory finish, to ensure that any repairs are of the highest order.
Our workshop facility is busy with Servicing of all Porsche Models. We can service every make and model of Porsche, we see Carrera GT’s, 959’s and all manner of exotic RS, GT2 and historic models. Our level of equipment is to main dealer standards, we subscribe to Porsche GB for the diagnostic equipment interface PIWIS, and in fact are one of only a handful of UK Independent specialists that subscribe to this service that ensures we have the most up-to date software in our test equipment, but also staff training, and technical bulletins and update documents, that can be essential to ensure the safe and reliable operation of a vehicle for the future. PIWIS can be an essential tool for determining faults, removing the need for lengthy diagnostic labour charges and in pre-purchase inspections, can even determine the validity of the speedometer reading, which can prove very effective for confirming a vehicle’s history.
Our company was formed from our success in Motorsport. Our name Tech 9 Motorsport could be considered as our only focus, but far from it, in fact our current motorsport business is a fraction of the company turnover. For years we have achieved incredible success, from National Championship and multiple titles through to International. Our proudest moment shared between winning the 2006 European FIA GT3 championship for the teams and drivers, and our relationship with the factory Porsche Motorsport division in 2007 as a development partner and our Podium finish in the grueling Spa 24 hour race. A true testament to our technical ability at the highest level of motorsport.
We are very proud of our association with the world’s largest Porsche tuner, TECHART. As the sole UK distributor for TECHART tuning products, we operate a trade and retail operation of UK sales and distribution of the TECHART brand. Not only do we operate a highly efficient mail order service, our workshop carry out the majority of UK conversions. This ensures that we can monitor the quality of the work that is carried out on-site, but also gives a focal point to UK sales, and frequently we find new owners for previous TECHART converted vehicles, to ensure that the brand is correctly represented and that our clients are assisted at the time of sale. TECHART vehicle sales remain strong, and a consumer demand for the products ensures decent residual values are achieved.
Finally, our car sales division is constantly sourcing and supplying, not only brand new vehicles for our clients, some supplied in standard form, but also others supplied with TECHART equipment. Our experience of the brand for around 20 years has built up a network of contacts throughout the UK and Europe, and sourcing hard to find vehicles, or retailing special vehicles is our speciality.
Our database of clients exceeds 10,000, and our regular mailing ensures that our latest products, news and offers are constantly updated.
Where to find us ?
Our location in Liverpool is very convenient for ease of access to motorway and road networks. Liverpool John Lennon airport is within five minutes, and the ports of Liverpool, give easy access for clients in Ireland and the Isle of Man. Manchester is only a twenty five minute journey, the same for Chester and North Wales, and the Wirral, we are ideally situated to cater for local clients and their servicing needs.
Location in the North West does not limit our client base, as our nationwide clients can be served by our dedicated vehicle transporter that can collect and deliver vehicles from a clients home or office.
To summarize our company, what makes us different is that we care, we care about how our clients are treated, we care about how we go about our business, and we care most importantly about the vehicles that we are entrusted with. We are privileged to work with such a special marque as Porsche, and share that same enthusiasm that our clients have for the brand, which I guess is why our clients choose to drive a Porsche, and who they choose to look after it for them.
