Chris Powell is the owner of Chris’s German Auto Service in Bellevue Washington. He’s run his shop for over 31 years caring for Porsche automobiles. Chris spent some of his early years in racing with Bruce Leven and Bayside Racing and he got his hands on some very serious Porsche race cars including: the RSR, 934, 935, 924, GTR, Lola Porsche, and the 962. The team ran at the 24 Hours of Daytona and 12 Hours of Sebring and they won at Sebring in 1981. Chris is on the Porsche Club of America’s National Technical Committee and enjoys helping Club members with their cars and technical challenges.
When Chris started his business he was a great mechanic but challenged as a business man. He hired a consultant to help he redefine how he was running his business.
After deciding to leaving the racing world Chris was looking for a job. A potential employer suggested he start his own business and ah-ha, he did!
