I'm sure this is the brainchild of mega enthusiast and owner Frank Cassidy.
Looks like an awesome project and will no doubt attract some cool names within the Porsche trade and community. Thumb

Yes it’s Frank. I follow on Facebook etc. Quite a coup to get an established name such as Autofarm on site. Reckon he will be able to attract a few more Porsche specialists , someone like royal steering wheels , a good wheel refurb company etc, quality detailer ....

He is also planning on cars & coffee type meets apparently.

Bicester Village - so still nowhere near the middle of the country then PC

Still, it looks like an excellent location for a business, but not an excellent location for me to pop in regularly..

Will have to make the 8 hour round trip once it opens though. Rolling Eyes

I've been following the progress on his Instagram, the renders/pics have all looked incredible and I'm dead excited. It's about an hour from me too so not too far at all!
