MISSISSAUGA, ON: Porsche Cars Canada will open a new dealership in Oakville, Ontario in 2012.
Owned by the Policaro Automotive Family, the dealership will be located on the south side of the QEW. Porsche Centre Oakville will formally open its doors in 2012 as Canada’s fifteenth Porsche Centre, and the third to open its doors in as many years.
“We are excited to be joining the Porsche family,” said dealer principal Tony Policaro. “We have a great deal of respect for Porsche as a brand, Porsche Cars Canada and the Canadian network that we are joining. We are also thrilled at the opportunity to operate in such a fantastic community in Oakville and will do our best to represent Porsche and contribute to its continued success and future growth.”
“The Policaro group is a well-established automotive group in the GTA with a reputation for strong performance and excellent customer satisfaction,” added Joe Lawrence, Porsche Canada’s president and CEO. “Most important, the Policaros’ passion for Porsche was evident from the moment we met. We look forward to fulfilling the outstanding market potential for Porsche in Oakville together with Tony and the Policaro group.”
