Revolution Porsche expands into Leeds with Carlton Porsche takeover


Revolution Porsche is to expand by taking over the highly reputable Porsche specialist on the outskirts of Leeds, Carlton Porsche.

One of the longest established marque specialists in the Leeds area, Carlton Porsche has offered great value for money servicing, restorations, bodyshop and motorsport preparation services since 1972 at its workshop close to Junction 27 of the M62.

Its owner Mick Goy has reluctantly decided to retire after 44 years of working on Stuttgart’s finest, but is pleased to be handing over the keys to a team who share his passion for Porsche.

Mick explained: “I wanted to make sure that Carlton Porsche was in safe hands once I hung up my tools, so I’ve had to wait for the right people to come along to pass the business on to. People have noticed I’ve been winding things down over the last few years, but now I have the guys from Revolution involved I know they will inject a new lease of life into the place and bring it back to how it was in its glory years.

“I’ve been hugely impressed by Russ and his team, their knowledge and enthusiasm for Porsches, and their commitment to customer service. I’m certain they will continue to do a great job for our customers.”

Revolution Porsche Director Russ Stanley also believes the two businesses are an ideal match.

“We’ve been looking to expand for some time, as our growing reputation has resulted in a rapidly increasing workload and we’ve been operating at full capacity at our Brighouse workshop. Taking over an existing reputable specialist in the Leeds area was our preferred route for finding a second workshop and we are excited to be buying Carlton Porsche,” he said.

“Mick has done a fantastic job over the last 44 years and we intend to carry on in exactly the same manner by providing customers with technical expertise, competitive pricing and exceptional service.”

Russ added: “This is also good news for our many existing customers who live or work in Leeds, who will soon have a much shorter journey to bring their Porsches to us to work on.”
