Jebsen Motors celebrates the grand opening of its new Porsche Centre at the Nanjing Dongshan International Business Headquarters Park at the evening on Mar 19. The opening of Porsche Centre Nanjing Jiangning will not only provide local and surrounding areas with the convenience of shopping for the full range of Porsche cars, but will also offer the high-quality customer care that the Porsche brand is known for.


On the opening day, Mr David Xiao, Chief Operating Officer of Porsche China; Ms Grace Xi, Director Region Central of Porsche China; Mr Joachim Eberlein, Managing Director of Jebsen Motors; Mr Andy Wu, General Manager of Porsche Centre Nanjing Jiangning, as well as loyal Porsche customers, Porsche enthusiasts and local media gathered to see the new Porsche Centre in person and to experience the new Panamera in action.

“Thanks to China's rapid economic development, Porsche's sales have increased by more than 500 times over the last 20 years.” Said Mr. David Xiao, Chief Operating Officer of Porsche China, who offered his congratulations in the grand opening of the new Porsche Centre and shared the tremendous changes of the development of Porsche in the Chinese mainland over the past two decades. “We have known the importance of expanding our dealer network since the first day we entered the market. Over the past 20 years, our partnership with dealer groups has grown stronger while bringing Porsche's world-renowned products and services to all regions of China.”


Mr Joachim Eberlein, Managing Director of Jebsen Motors, said of the partnership with Porsche, “ 2021 is a very special year for us, as it marks our 20th anniversary in the Chinese mainland. Now, we operate 12 Porsche Centres in 7 major cities in China.”


Mr Andy Wu, General Manager of Porsche Centre Nanjing Jiangning, also said: “Adhering to the global professional standards of Porsche, and Jebsen’s service philosophy of continuous innovation and pursuit of excellence, we integrate the culture of Porsche into customers' lives and advocate a new lifestyle of Porsche. We are committed to making Porsche Centre Nanjing Jiangning the most professional Porsche Centre in Jiangsu Province!”


The new Porsche Centre covers an impressive total construction area of 16,716 square metres. With an overall height of 20 metres, the five-storey centre will offer a wide range of services, including a showroom, repair centre, and body paint services. The centre is also notable for the multiple rapid-charging poles installed on-site; these are compatible with Porsche’s all-electric Taycan, which launched in 2019 and can charge a car up to 80% of its battery capacity within half an hour.

The Porsche Centre Nanjing Jiangning has adopted several industry-leading digital technology solutions. For example, environment monitoring systems have been installed to ensure the operational safety of machine rooms, while its network core switch uses a dual hot-standby system that mutually backs up and expands network bandwidth, improving internet stability and minimising risk.

In addition, the new Porsche Centre has also implemented a range of energy-saving and emission-reducing measures to decrease total energy consumption. These include a rooftop hanging garden, which effectively reduces the entire building’s temperature by up to six degrees Celsius during the summer months, while also conserving heat in the winter, thereby significantly reducing the need for air conditioning. A power-saving LED lighting system is used throughout the whole building, and solar panels have been installed on the rooftop, providing hot water for the centre’s maintenance workers.


Jebsen Motors aspires to provide services that exceed customer expectations, and a specific talent development programme has enabled the company to become one of the industry’s most respected organisations. As of mid-March, Porsche Centre Nanjing Jiangning employs 65 staff members, including eight Porsche Certificated Technicians – with one silver-certified and four bronze-certified – along with eleven sales consultants.


The year 2021 marks the 20th anniversary of Porsche's entry into the Chinese mainland, as well as the 20th anniversary of Jebsen Motors' first Porsche showroom in the Chinese mainland. Since 2015, China has been the world's largest single market for Porsche for six consecutive years, and in 2020, Porsche delivered 88,968 cars, up 3% year-on-year.

Jebsen Motors – one of Porsche’s largest global dealer group partners,
 have represented the brand across Greater China for 66 years – has enjoyed strong overall sales in recent years. Jebsen was recognised for its stellar sales performance throughout 2020, delivering a total of 10,139 cars, servicing over 100,000 customers across its network of workshops.
