I can vouch for Makellos. Excellent shop. Tom who is the lead mechanic in service department is great.

Cheers,
Lance

Both those shops are good. Others would be Mirage and Black Forest. But if it’s a nice stock car I would go with one of the first two. They do pretty serious resto work.

Performance Independent Porsche is a good choice. It's a sort of old time shop & well respected by the other shops. It's usually overfilled with cars though, so you might have to give them a little lead time.

I've been to all the shops listed with the exception of CPR. I use the shops based on what work i'm having done.

Suspension/Engine work I use Jae at Mirage.
Restoration type work I use Makellos
When I had my 997 I used Mark at performance.

my recommendation is Jae at Mirage or Makellos for a PPI

Where is the car in San Diego... it’s a huge county.

Makellos and CPR are way up north.
Jae Lee/Mirage and Black Forest are sort of mid-county
Mark at Precision is a bit more Southern

All are excellent, so might as well make it easy on the seller...

+1 for Black Forest. Mark Kinninger knows his stuff and its worth the trek for him to take a peek.
