Porsche repair labor rates

I take my 944 to a local Porsche only repair shop, the labor rate there is $69/hour.

I was wondering what other Porsche only places charge around the country for labor.

Sunset Porsche-Beaverton, Oregon. I don't know their rates, but they wanted to charge me $85.00 for an oil change. So $60.00 an hour would be a safe bet.

What part of PA is that shop in? I'm in southeast PA (philly suburbs), and haven't found a p-car only place for less than $60.

Sewickley Audi-Porsche (Pittsburgh area) is $62.00 per hour and that is considered outrageous around here!

After all, this is the land of renting an ENTIRE house for $535.00/mo

$535 will get you a run-down studio apartment in Seattle, which leaves your pride and joy parked on the street

Porsche Crest

I live in Pottsville about 45min-1 hour North of Reading, PA. stuff here is dirt cheap, but the average pay here is like 6.50 an hour, and we cant find parts, so when you calculate finding parts and getting them and labor. then you got your 60-80 per hour labor

dang, you can get a run-down studio for $535? the going rate for a 1-bdrm in my appt. complex, which is was built in the early 70's, is $1450. well-kept & clean but no luxury. for a newer luxury 1-bdrm you're talking $1800-2000. but with the economy slowing, those rates should come down soon.

Unhappy

In California,
Local dealership is 90 per hour
Two independent local factory trained mechanics charge 45 and 62 per hour, respectively.

porsche only =75$/hr. more inventory and knowledge than the local porsche dealer or anyone else in the area. the shop owner(or me) works on your car, not some $10 @ hour kid. 30 years experience exclusively with porsches and member of the better business bureau in good standing. active in PCA club racing. a competant porsche mechanic is worth whatever he wants to charge.
