Shaun has restored and customized his SC including repowering with a 3.2 conversion. As a designer by trade drawn to the Porsche’s lines and style.  Porsche ownership started with a 944 S2, but the for sale sign was put in the window after first drive of a air cooled 911.
Nothing makes me happier than tinkering in the garage on projects. Shaun is forever “adding lightness” to his SC.”

 

 

 

 

 

Alex Charles – Sales / Engineer

I am a mechanical engineer who has a keen interest in all things Porsche. Trained at Fisher & Paykel as a toolmaker I was able to expand into CAD design and CNC machining. My first Porsche, A 1972 S turned into a very rusty though well disguised 1971 T, Not all bad though as I met and discovered a whole new world of like minded people looking for parts and enjoying the hunt. alx-1Moving forward my current car is a 1974 backdate. It took me two years to build in my spare time and I drive the nuts off it! The Porschaholic is a way for me to share my passion and help those needing direction or support.
