Josh Helton

Josh Helton | Silver Certified Service Technician

I was born in Orlando, Fl. in 1982. All my life cars have been a facination of mine. Both my parents worked in dealerships till I was about seven, in some form or another. My dad has build hot rods most of his life, so on weekends I would spend with him, throughout a lot of my childhood, we would be working on a car. In 2004, I went to UTI, graduated with a degree in automotive technology, and was accepted into the Volkswagen Academy in Exton, PA. After graduating from VW, I have spent the last ten years in a dealer as a technician. I have since become VW Expert Technician, High Voltage Technician, Diagnostic Technician, and should be VW Master by the end of 2015. I am also ASE Master certified, and hope to be Porsche Bronze certified by the end of 2015. Over the years, it has become my passion and drive to be better than I was the day before, gain as much experience as possible, and make sure the car is fixed correctly, the first time. I look forward to growing with Porsche and our clients.

Michael Bass

Michael Bass | Gold Certified Service Technician

I have always had an interest in working on different cars my whole life. However, Porsche has always been my dream car to own and I've always wanted to be a part of the legacy. I started with Porsche in 2004 as an apprentice at the Porsche dealer in ST. Petersburg and I've also worked for Porsche in Destin and Melbourne where I was the shop foreman. This is where the road to my ASE Master Certification and Gold level Certification started. Over the years while working with Porsche I've gained a lot of experience and appreciation for this amazing brand. I enjoy being a technician and working with my hands and I also love the challenge of solving problems and repairing cars to factory spec. I am currently working on my engineering degree in hopes that someday I'll be able to design and build a car.
