Chief executive Paul Bowker said: “It has been exciting to watch the transformation on the site since we announced the award of the franchise in September 2017. We’re located on a key site for Preston.

“We feel responsibility to make sure that the visitor experience we create is worthy of both the city and such a prestigious automotive brand.

“There has been a real sense of expectation as the building has taken shape. We’re delighted to be open. And can’t wait to share the incredible Porsche retail experience with Lancashire motorists.”
