With great Porsches, comes great responsibility.

$39 million in cars, given the white glove treatment.

Consider for a moment the responsibility we accept when moving a client’s rare and ofttimes irreplaceable vintage Porsche. The entire process requires complete focus, years of experience, and precise choreography. For Labor Day weekend this year, we were challenged like never before.

Lime Rock Park’s Historics Festival is one of the finest annual vintage automobile gatherings in North America. Each year, a noted collector is chosen to be featured under the tent. For 2021, the nod went to renowned architect Steven Harris. Steven’s Porsche collection is truly extraordinary, rivaling the best in the world. We’ve been fortunate to have cared for many of his cars over the years and can attest to the quality, beauty and diversity of his curation.

 

For this year’s Historic Festival, 24 of Steven’s cars needed to moved between three locations over the course of four days. We were honored to receive the call to handle the transport, but also [...]

January, 2020 – Bryan Lagas, the General Manager of Speedsport Tuning and SST Auto, has formally purchased the business. Speedsport/SST begins the new decade with the same staff and department heads clients have depended on, yet with a renewed sense of purpose and a forward-looking mission.

Speedsport Tuning began life 30 years ago as a small Porsche performance shop owned by Larry Prentiss in Norwalk, Connecticut. The shop had a good reputation and eventually attracted Porsche technician Spencer Cox. After working for Larry for a couple of years, Spencer purchased the business, fully embracing local enthusiasts and the burgeoning Porsche Club Racing scene. With steady growth, the business outgrew its location and moved to Danbury in 2005 and then to its current 32,000 square foot location in 2010.

With steady growth, the business outgrew its location and moved to Danbury in 2005 and then to its current 32,000 square foot location in 2010. While Speedsport’s reputation in the Porsche world continued to grow, their clients often asked the shop to handle the service and maintenance on their non-Porsche vehicles as well. SST Auto was formed as a sister company to specialize on non-Porsche European cars including Audi, BMW, Mercedes-Benz, Mini, VW, Aston Martin, Bentley, Lamborghini, Land Rover, Maserati, Jaguar, Alfa Romeo, Fiat and Lotus. Additional award-winning factory-trained technicians were brought onboard to service this fast-expanding market. As Speedsport/SST’s capabilities grew, their reputation expanded as well.In 2015, Spencer hired Bryan Lagas to join the Speedsport/SST management team. Bryan came from running his own successful [...]

About Us

SST Auto and Speedsport Tuning history
Since 1995, SST Auto and Spencer Cox have been providing clients throughout the Northeast with honest, dependable and expert Porsche service. While Spencer is a Porschephile at heart, over the years many clients would bring us their non-Porsche vehicles for service. Spencer was the only one they trusted to take care of their cars, so we happily obliged. As the business continued to grow, eventually SST Auto was born to work exclusively on European automobiles. Spencer added expert, factory-trained Audi, BMW, VW, Mercedes and Mini technicians to provide the same level of service his Porsche customers were accustomed to. Today, SST Auto and Speedsport Tuning operate out of a modern 20,000 square foot facility in Danbury, Connecticut conveniently located near the Danbury Mall and Danbury Airport. SST Auto and Speedsport Tuning use the latest factory diagnostic equipment and OEM parts to keep your vehicle running in showroom perfect condition. From routine maintenance and service to major repairs and even performance upgrades, SST Auto and Speedsport Tuning are ready to serve you with expert service you can trust.

Listen to what our Customers have to say about usVery professional. They did a great job working on my car. They kept me informed about everything via email and phone. They were very up front and transparent about any work/suggestions for my car.I’m an out of town guy with no knowledge of Danbury - I needed a third party mechanical appraisal of a high end used vehicle. SST Auto did a fantastic job – Chris and his tech team went through the car top to bottom and gave me all the information I needed (detailed written report) to make an informed decision. These guys are top pros – they’ve got the technical expertise, equipment, and hands on skill to really know what to look for. All this done over the phone in one day and at a very reasonable price – a great resource for your area.Chris did another great job explaining all repairs that were needed on my Mercedes - from the air filter replacement to changing the spark plugs. I never felt pressured. The crew at SST perform repairs right the first time. Without a doubt I would recommend this shop to any one who owns a European car and wants their vehicle running its best. Rachel makes the checkout a pleasant experience - always warm and friendly.Another bang-up job by SST! Bryan was hel [...]
