We are very lucky to have completed another staple year. Having the opportunity to triple the size of our building and staff while in a so called “recession” is an absolute blessing. While we have worked very hard day in and day out to get to this point, we could not have done it without the support from our clients and friends.
2013 treated us very well and allowed us to hire highly qualified staff and relocate our shop to Anaheim CA. We now reside in a 6800sqft facility in addition to our 3000sqft facility still located in La Habra. Along with our new Headquarters, we opted to redesign our website ( www.bentonperformance.com ) to have a more proper existence with our growth. We are hoping our new site will help educate and surpass our priceless “word of mouth” referrals in which we have valued for nearly 25 years. In addition to our website and blog, we have used Instagram as an avenue of communication with our friends, fans, and customers. Find us on Instagram @bentonperformance and tag #bentonperformance on your posts.
The 2013 La Carrera Panamericana was a success and we had our 3rd podium of 4 consecutive years. While the event proved to be challenging and had us on our feet the entire time, we’re proud of the results. We have plans to rebuild the 356 racecar and attend 2014 La Carrera Panamericana for our 4th podium.
This year, Benton Performance was shadowed by a video/photography crew Valkyr Productions, and Rana Chilanga Photography, who combined talents to produce a wonderful documentary regarding our involvement in the Great Panamerican Race. Please keep an eye on our blog for the release of this documentary.
At the request of customers in the industry, a shop video was recorded late summer of 2013 for release near Spring of 2014. The video will feature cars serviced and built at Benton Performance, both on the track and on the street and will represent a full realm of Porsche’s development from the 50's to modern day.
We look forward to an outstanding 2014 and have some VERY big things happening this year. While we cannot speak in detail, we do look forward to the press release allowing full disclosure. Look for a huge year from Benton Performance!
Happy New Year to everyone. Play safe.
