Amy Riches - General Manager


Amy’s Porsche passion started early on, in high school when she saw a 944 for the first time. She started participating in track days in the early 2000’s, eventually buying her own 987 Boxster S. This soon progressed to a 997 GT3 and then to her current 997 GT3RS. She is the current and longest standing Chief Instructor for the Suncoast Region PCA, and one of the few women Chief Instructors in the country. Customer relations is Amy’s top priority and in her own words… “We don’t want to be a cookie cutter business, our customers become our friends. To see them get out of their car (especially at the track) with a smile on their face saying “WOW that was Awesome!” is priceless and all the incentive we need to keep the passion alive.”
