Porsche in Toronto

Hi there!

I'd like to ask for some help, please.

I am a UK Porsche owner who is hopefully moving to Toronto with my wife next year (business assignment.)

I would like to continue driving a Porsche when I'm over there - can anyone please recommend dealers and repair shops in the Toronto area. I'd like to do some research before we come out.

I am likely to want either a 3.2, 964 or 993.

Many thanks,
Simon

Toronto is a harsh environment to drive an older 911 year round. You may want to consider a beater for the dearth of winter.....

Is your car RHD or LHD? Anyhow, if you like your car and are comfortable with it, the importation process is fairly simple to bring your own car to Canada. As well, shipping is not that bad.

I guess it depends on the difference in the markets as well.....

Just a thought

Thanks

Thanks for the help, I hadn't thought of bringing my car across! It's right hand drive but I guess it would be OK for summer use only!

Cheers!

...not sure I'd want to commute with a RHD car in and around Toronto. Maybe for a Sunday car.
