Customers can also browse and purchase Porsche equipment accessories to enhance and customise their vehicles. The Porsche Driver’s Selection ‘Shop-in-Shop’ is built to bring the dynamic Porsche lifestyle to homes, offices, and weekends. It features the latest accessories that captures the unique appeal of the Porsche driving experience, an extensive collection including clothing, luggage, watches, model cars and leather products.

Porsche Brunei General Manager Lahiru de Silva said, “Since the first Porsche Centre opened in Brunei 24 years ago, we have been dedicated to providing a standard of excellence to our customers and growing customer base that reflects our brand.

“Porsche is more than just a car. It is a synonym for high-end thinking, a sporty driving experience, elegant design, powerful functionality and superior service, and we’re thrilled to welcome our customers to experience the brand in a refreshing way at our new Porsche Centre.”

Porsche Asia Pacific Managing Director Arthur Willmann also joined the launch via a video call from Singapore, during which he said, “Being the first to introduce an electric vehicle-ready dealership exclusive and sporting mobility in this market is a considerable achievement for Porsche Brunei.

“It’s a testimony of the excellent work being done by the team, and it underscores our ambitions to provide a dream car for every type of customer, as we are committed to shaping the future of mobility.”
