“We still use a handshake to deal the deal; we’re a little old-fashioned that way,” says Uli Günster, Manager of the Porsche Vintage Car Restoration Workshop at SCHAD Originale. He and his team are even more diligent when it comes to the completion and documentation of their work. “When a customer arrives, we’re prepared. We show them the dismantled parts, explain exactly what we’ve done, document it all with photos and videos and take all the time needed to answer any questions. For us, that goes without saying.”
Bernhard Schad was already repairing Porsches back in the mid 1980s for the generals of the US army station in the Rhine-Main region. Today, these models are classics, and the workshop team puts their heart and soul and years of experience into maintaining them in the Porsche Vintage Car Restoration Workshop in the Klassikstadt in Frankfurt-Fechenheim.
Since opening his first workshop in 1985, Bernhard Schad and his team have specialised in the technology, restoration, and conservation of historic vehicles. Today, SCHAD Originale employs more than 50 team members in two locations. The Porsche Vintage Car Restoration Workshop is yet another confirmation of his passion for motor cars and handcrafted perfection.
