Sime Darby Auto Performance Sdn Bhd (SDAP), the authorized importer of Porsche vehicles in Malaysia, has opened the doors to its first pop-up store in the heart of Penang. The new pop-up store is located at the luxury Gurney Paragon shopping mall at Jalan Kelawai with a total space of more than 1,603 sq ft.
The new pop-up store is strategically located and easily accessible within the city of George Town for greater customer convenience. With the aim to offer an unparalleled level of customer experience, Porsche customers and enthusiasts will be able to savour extraordinary Porsche-related reading materials while sipping gourmet coffee, giving them luxurious comfort and modern conveniences during their visit. Test drives can also be arranged from the comfort and convenience of the pop-up store, through a prior appointment with Porsche Centre Penang. In addition to that, the latest range of Porsche Driver’s Selection apparel and accessories are also available at the pop-up store.
“As part of our commitment to a priceless and unique ownership experience for our owners in the Northern region, the new pop-up store offers a drop-off service for customers by appointment for vehicle service maintenance. We understand how busy life can be, which is why we want to make it as convenient as possible. Customers can opt to leave their vehicle at the drop-off area of the new pop-up store while we handle the transporting and servicing at Porsche Centre Penang,” said Christopher Hunter, Chief Executive Officer of SDAP.
The new 718 Cayman SportDesign Series on display
The pop-up store showcases the recently launched 718 Cayman SportDesign Series. The series stands out from the 718 model line not only in terms of performance, but also in its visual design. The result is a subtle carbon fibre design for an extra element of individualization. The new SportDesign Series also enhances the overall appearance, complemented by the SportDesign Package which has a unique front end with a newly designed front spoiler and rear apron.
The contrasting black accents on the door handles and the centrally positioned black tailpipes from the standard sports exhaust system gives the SportDesign Series its contrasting sporty appearance. LED main headlights including Porsche Dynamic Light System Plus (PDLS+) helps to ensure optimum visibility without hindering other road users. At the rear, the three-dimensional design of the taillights incorporating four-spot brake lights leaves a lasting impression. The vehicle rolls on the 20-inch wheels are available in either the Carrera S or Carrera Sport Wheel design. A forged one-piece alloy wheel in high gloss black completes the side view.
The 718 Cayman SportDesign Series is priced at RM625,000 and exclusively limited to only 15 units. As with all vehicles sold by SDAP, it comes with a four-year warranty and free maintenance package for peace-of-mind ownership. The stated price includes all applicable duties, except registration fee, road tax and insurance. Specifications and prices are subject to change without prior notice.
Porsche enthusiasts are able to receive further information and assistance, including arranging test drives, via Porsche Centre Penang.
