Tony Abiog took great care of me recently when I purchased my 2021 Porsche Cayenne Coupe. Tony is super knowledgeable and listened carefully to my wants and needs before recommending a few choices without pressure to buy. After the purchase he spent as much time as I needed to teach me how to use all the great features and benefits and he followed up later to see if I had any questions or needed help with anything. I highly recommend Tony Abiog !

I chose Porsche Redwood City as they stock more large-size Porsches I preferred than any other dealers in the Bay area. To meet my preference more precisely, I decided to custom-order my Panamera 4S as soon as the 2021 models were released. Suggestions and advices of Gary were essential to complete my configuration at an optimum time, and even in these days of global chip shortages and delayed production, Gary managed to deliver my Panamera on time, in a perfect shape and condition. I am excited to commute again, with my new Panamera. Their exhibition of classic and exotic Porsches like 918 ...

Top notch place for buying a car and of course, especially a Porsche. We had something specific in mind and had been browsing inventory on Cars.com. Redwood City had the Cayenne Hybrid we were considering and we were able to set up an appointment with Sam to take a test drive. Right now we can just have 1 driver the dealer so if you have more than one driver, you may need to take turns. We got some good advice, considered alternatives and did more homework overnight.

It was a hard Porsche to get, and my first new Porsche after many years in older Porsches. "What do I need to do to lock this up?" I asked. "Nothing. I'll call you when it's time to configure your car," said Pete Laban. And when the time came, he did just that—and I could scarcely believe how easy and seamless the transaction was when my car came in. After what felt like 20 minutes, I was merging onto the freeway in my new Porsche. It seemed almost too easy, which anyone in business ...

There are only a small handful of sales managers in America that have the experience, knowledge and insight of someone like Pete Laban. He is not only incredibly well-informed on all Porsche products, both current and vintage, but he is happy to take the time to order a car to the exact taste and needs of any given customer. I have purchased many Porsches from Pete over many years and could not fathom buying one from anybody else. He is the best in the business!
