At Gerber Motorsport, we are proud of our history and the reputation it fueled. Our company was founded by Walter Gerber in 1993. Walter started the company as a consulting firm for customers and clients that needed professional racing and Porsche management services.
In 2016, Walter sold the Gerber Motorsport shop and name to 7-time Indy 500 and LeMans driver Dominic Dobson of Dobson Motorsport. Dobson drove for Walter in the Bayside Racing Team’s Porsche and Lola Indy cars during the 1989-1990 Racing season. Dobson, along with his brother Patrick, bring many years of Porsche competition experience to Gerber and are committed to maintain the same high quality of work that made Gerber such a success.

Your Porsche was engineered to operate at optimum performance. However, peak performance can only be maintained when your Porsche is serviced at regular intervals. Depending on the amount of miles you drive your Porsche, your regular service intervals may be more or less frequent.
Porsche maintenance intervals are broken up as follows:
Our Seattle Porsche service intervals are broken up by time for low mileage drivers and by mileage for frequent drivers. Some areas of routine Seattle Porsche tuning may fall outside of the boundaries of your maintenance schedule. For example, your brake pads may need replacement at a random time in between service intervals. Our Seattle Porsche service experts will keep you informed when this type of work is required.
In order to keep your Porsche running optimally and ensure your ongoing safety, our service and maintenance experts will check the following elements and systems.

The Gerber Motorsports team offers engine overhauls and rebuilds for water-cooled and air-cooled Porsche automobiles. All disassembly and assembly are done at our shop, and some of our clients have even shipped their cars or engines from other parts of the country just so our team could do the work.
If your Porsche engine requires a rebuild, we carefully take it apart making note of every part that was removed or discarded for replacement. All motor parts, coolant channels, and oil channels are thoroughly cleaned to ensure optimal performance when the engine is rebuilt.
Our Certified Porsche technicians will remove your Porsche’s cylinder heads, and then send them to our on-site machine shop for inspection.

Porsche is German automobile manufacturer specializing in high performance sports cars. From the racing circuit to your local highways and byways, Porsche offers a level or reliability and quality that is unrivaled in the automotive industry.
Ferdinand Porsche founded the company in 1931. As the chief engineer of Mercedes Benz, Porsche understood the true value of quality and performance, but also appreciated style and beauty. It was this fusion of value and aesthetics that went into the first Porsche model, the Porsche 64. This car was immediately popular and set the stage for a storied history unrivaled in the world of performance automobiles.
The original Porsche Grand Prix race car was built in 1947, the first Porsche of its kind. This was when Porsche’s unique logo was developed, based on the Coat of Arms for the Free People State.
In 1951, Ferdinand Porsche died but the company won its first international race with the 1100 CC class. Two years later, the Porsche 550 Spider was debuted with a 1.5L engine that delivered an impressive 110 BPH. This car was an immediate success, and its classic style is still revered for its sleek style and simplicity.
In the 1980s, the name Porsche became synonymous with success. The Porsche 956 became the most successful sports car of all time, and in 1988 the Porsche 911 Carrera make its heralded debut. Today, Porsche is owned by Volkswagen AG and produces a wide variety of automobiles, including high performance vehicles, SUVs, and sedans.
Your Porsche is a part of this storied history. At Gerber Motorsports, we are dedicated to ensuring your Porsche remains reliable, safe, and fun to drive.
