Proudly serving Porsche owners since 2001
“I just returned from competing in the 2018 NASA National Championships at Circuit of the Americas. For me, this was a dream come true! I suspect it would not have happened, however, without Motor Werks!
I started in the track-car hobby six years ago with a bone stock 2006 Porsche Cayman S. Early on, I met Motor Werks Racing during a Chin Track Days event when I had a small problem with my car. They were super helpful! We took the car to their shop, and they sorted out the issue. That was the start of a six year relationship with Motor Werks.
I absolutely loved the track day hobby, and wanted to grow in the sport. As my skills and competence increased (more than 50 events with Chin), Matthew Forte, would talk to me about changes to the car so that the car's ability and mine progressed at a similar pace. During four years of modifications, (cage, safety equipment, racing seat, wheels and tires, dampers, suspension, track set up, and too many changes to list here), my car became a full fledged race car. It has raced more than 30 races with NASA in the last two years.
I can't say how much I appreciate Danielle's, Matthew's and their crew's efforts, advice, and expertise in helping me and the car progress. They have kept the car in excellent condition with post track inspections and regular maintenance work. Their workmanship and skill is superb!! Their track day support is wonderful! The way they run their shop makes you feel like family.
If you want to track or race a Porsche, this is the group of folks you want on your team!”
Thank you, guys!!!
“I had been driving my Porsche 911 daily driver on the track for a little over a year when I realized that I was starting to get serious about the sport. I decided it was time to get into a purpose built track car so that I would have all the safety features such as a full roll cage, 5 point harness, fire suppression system, etc. Brakes and tires on the 911 were getting expensive so I was also looking for a solution that would be easier on the wallet!
I met Danielle and Matt at Motor Werks Racing and fell in love with their cars. Matt is very passionate about his craft and pours a lot of love into each and every car the team builds. His team is top notch and everyone at Motor Werks Racing always puts the customer first.
Through the build process, Danielle and Matt spent as much time as needed to help me make the right choices on the car and helped me understand why each decision was made along the way. Matt’s approach is very practical, building a car that can grow and change with the driver over time. He also did a great job helping me understand that some decisions can be made to save money without sacrificing performance, and some choices are made because we need to put safety first without any compromises.
When the day finally came to get out on the track with my car, the Motor Werks team provided full track-side support. This is really needed since the difference between a new Porsche street car and a purpose built track car is like night and day. I was glad to have Matt and his team assisting me as I was getting acclimated to a new experience. The team always made me feel comfortable and stayed with me as I got assimilated to the car and my driving performance improved.
A year later, the team continues to provide support as needed and continually adjusts the car to open up enhanced levels of performance that matches my capabilities as a driver. I would highly recommend the Motor Werks team to anyone looking to make the move from a high performance street car to a custom built track car.”
If there was a 6th star, I'd press that. This isn't some random shop. This is a race team that's cool enough to tune up your car. Great people, immaculate shop, timely, top notch work. They may focus on Porsche, but hat doesn't mean they try and run the bill up; because they don't. They only do what's necessary, or what you want done. Cannot recommend highly enough.Chris JacobFirst class operation with highly skilled mechanics. Matthew and his staff are extremely knowledgeable, patient and thorough in their work. He and his staff took the time to explain different options when it came to modifying my 944 Turbo. Their rates are good compared to other shops, but their work is top notch!Darin SmithBest performance shop in town!!Brian Landfried Mathew and his team are second to none. The shop is literally spotless and their work is perfection. MWR has built motors and transaxles for me as well as set my car up for road racing. In my opinion their attention to detail and insight concerning alignment, corner balancing has given me an edge over time. I've been a customer for many years and I highly recommend MWR to anyone looking to get the most out of their Porsche...
