I received very good service and advice from Adrian Harkin (Hartech Automotive) in Mordialloc and his rates are reasonable. - Colin Young

Lou Giasis of Motion Automotive, South Melbourne, does understand 928s even if he mainly works on 911s. He did my PPI and was accurate with his estimate of the work required to get the car up to scratch. - Peter Buttery

If you are in the South-East. Dennis at Autohaus Engineering, in Rowville. Been excellent for years for me! - Glenn Smith

I second Glenn's recommendation of Detlef (Dennis)at Rowville; meticulous, scrupulous, knowledgeable - he'd be my choice. - Alan Galt

  • George Cairns in Fern Tree Gully (again, a bit of a hike.)

Spyder is run by John Gregory who only works on Porsches and secifically older 911's and 356's. He has an amazing 356 Carrera which he built himself from the ground up and a lovely 911S 2.7 which he and his son-in-law have just built.

  • Spyder Automobiles Pty Ltd
    27 Elma Rd
    Cheltenham North 3192
    ph: 03 9532 0246

John's son-in-law is Mike Jacobson who comes from a racing background (as a driver) having raced 911's in endurance events, 300BHP Ford Escorts, you name it. Mike's business is Racebred Auto Repairs which also works on other performance cars and a lot of racing, Targa Tassie cars etc. He works on a few 928's - one at least of which I am aware races and is highly developed with very big BHP.

I know Mike and John do a number of the Targa Tasmania Porsches each year and a lot of Victoria Porsche Club cars go there. They have strong links to the Porsche Club of Victoria.

Mike has just started the website mentioned above for the business and I thought this might be a worthwhile link for Landshark.

Mike and John have worked on my 928 since I bought it and have absolutely done the right thing by me throughout. (.. as a barrister in Court every day I have learned that not everyone does this!) I get warned before the next occasion when something has to be done and the car has never let me down.
Regards, Steve Carson
