We at Porsche Centre Willoughby are proud to celebrate our 50 Year Anniversary in 2019, making PCW one of the oldest standing Porsche dealerships in Australia.
A key to PCW's long-term success is the lasting relationships we create and foster with our loyal client base. Today, PCW employs over 40 staff, dedicated to making our clients’ entire Porsche ownership experience a pleasure.
On behalf of the team at Porsche Centre Willoughby, I would like to thank everyone within the PCW community for making the last 50 years truly exceptional.
We cannot wait to see what the next 50 years will bring!
