Park Place Porsche in Grapevine will celebrate its grand opening Sept. 13.

The two-story, 68,000-square-foot dealership stands just off Texan Trail and State Highway 114, not far from Park Place Motorcars and its Lexus and Jaguar Land Rover dealerships. According to Park Place, this will be one of the largest Porsche dealerships in the nation. 

This is Park Place’s second Porsche dealership and fourth dealership in Grapevine. Good, Fulton & Farrell served as architect, while Hill & Wilkinson was general contractor.

“We designed the space to bring the brand to life so clients can explore the iconic brand, making the experience their own,” Ken Schnitzer, chairman of Park Place Dealerships, said in a statement.

The dealership features a showroom that can accommodate as many as 21 vehicles, such as the 911, Cayman, Boxster, Panamera, Macan and Cayenne. The space also has a client lounge, boutique, repair shop containing 28 service bays and large service drive.

Park Place Porsche is green, too — the dealership will be LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certified, making efforts to save energy, water and resources, as well as generating less waste.
