David, Northern California – Buyer 12/16

Good Morning Paul:

I just wanted to let you know how pleased I am with the car. Your description was right on the money and from what I’ve seen it is exactly what you said it is. That being said I want you to know that this has been a very pleasant experience for me and it is because of you and your honesty/integrity why I followed through with the purchase. In today’s world it is very difficult to find honesty it seems to have been compromised for greed. Anyway, my hat is off to your father for training you! [The gentleman who recommended AutoKennel] was correct when he said, “Paul and his father are stand up guys”. Someday, I hope we can meet up.

Thanks again Paul,

Dave

“The expertise and current market knowledge of the Kramers  at AutoKennel is 2nd to none. When I was ready to sell my 996 GT3 I met with Paul and he guided me in a fair and informed manner and my car sold within 24 hours. The professionalism of the Kramers should serve as an example in the Porsche industry. Thank you guys. – Mike S., West Hills CA.”

Hey Paul, That’s great news, the people (that’s plural) who referred me to you were spot on, you are “The Man!” I’ve got to say I’m pleasantly surprised at how quickly you sold my car. I want to add that I really enjoyed meeting you, I appreciated the regular updates, you wrote a great story about my car, your depth and scope of knowledge is impressive, love your shop and I want to buy everything in it. Let’s see if we can do something else down the road. Now that I have some loose change in my pocket, let me know if you come across a good 997, black or white. Ed, your sons a rockstar! Many thanks, Mark P.

“I found my latest air cooled Porsche, an 87 Carrera at AutoKennel.  I never thought I would attempt to buy such a car online and at such a great distance. Paul Kramer worked hard supplying the much needed answers to my numerous questions concerning condition and I thank him for his professionalism.  The car has met my expectations and I am very proud of my purchase. Thanks Paul”

George, Portland, Oregon – Seller 6/15
“Hi Paul,I must admit that I had some reactions on the cold windy night in North Portland when I watched my speedster leave in a trailer truck bound for Southern California, I wasn’t sure what I was getting into. Once I received your call that the car had arrived in good shape, the rest of the sale went just as you indicated it would with no  surprises from Autokennel. What a pleasure it was from long distance to receive your frequent texts,emails and calls keeping me up to date on the progress of the sale. Already talking up Autokennel to my friends.”   Thanks Again George B.

Darryl, Fort Worth, TX – Buyer 5/15
“First off I’d like to say I’m a first-time Porsche owner, well… I am now thanks to Auto Kennel.  Working with Paul I was able to achieve a childhood dream. I would like to add that I live in Texas so I was buying the car sight unseen. The website was extremely helpful with a great deal of background information on the car and several pictures which helped to aid me in my research and ultimately my final decision. Not only did Paul guide me through the process, but he helped to arrange a PPI from a qualified Porsche mechanic as well as shipping to the final destination. Not to mention he also kept me updated as things transpired.  The customer service I received was simply outstanding. I could not be more happier with the purchase nor the process.  So thank you Paul for not only your time and effort, but salesmanship and follow through. After all it’s the possibility of having a dream come true that makes life interesting. So thanks to Auto Kennel, my life is now a little more interesting!”

1987 Porsche 930 Turbo Coupe

Andial 3.5L Twin Plug 410 HP Engine – Less than 9,000 Miles on Fresh Drivetrain

David, Northern California – Buyer 5/15
“I’ve bought a few classic sports cars and every one of them comes with a set of issues.  Maybe that is what makes them “classic”.   I’ve also run into all kinds of people selling cars.  There are those who do everything they can to hide the issues, and there are those who are fully transparent and above board.  Paul is one of the latter and also a great communicator.   Our sales process took longer than expected, but Paul stuck to his word, kept me updated and when we were done, I knew everything I was “going to discover later” before I left the lot.   I’d happily buy from Paul again.”

1993 Porsche 928 GTS Coupe

Paint to Sample/5-Speed Manual – Featured in Famous Porsche TV Commercial

William, Southern California- Seller 10/14
“Auto Kennel, While I have known Paul Kramer for around 15 years, only recently did I decide to sell a car I thought I would keep forever.  A 928 GTS is a model that doesn’t fit the normal Porsche buyer profile, and is for those with more esoteric (or some Porschephiles would say eccentric, lol!) and varied automotive tastes.  As such, I came to Paul with the dilemma of finding a broker who would do the sale justice.    Paul’s approach was not only deliberate, patient, and professional, but I found that he had a true passion for the niche in the Porsche pantheon that the 928 occupies.  There was even forum chatter by 928 lovers that the asking price was way out of bounds.  Paul communicated with me during that protracted process and explained the difference when selling a car with a limited audience.   It came as no surprise that Paul found a buyer willing to purchase a superior example, and also one who will continue the tradition of proud stewardship of one of Porsche’s finest design efforts.    I could not be happier with the result or to recommend Paul and Ed to anyone who demands fairness, communication, professionalism, attention to detail, and uncompromisingly puts the customer first.  The ultimate test is to do business with friends, and success is when the interaction results in a strengthened friendship.   Well done Auto Kennel!

“Hey Paul,

Ferrari finally arrived today. It’s been raining non stop here and looks like it will be next week before we have a sunny day that I can actually drive it but I wanted to tell you that overall it looks quite good and I’m very pleased assuming it drives as good as it looks. Thanks for a smooth, easy transaction…Just letting you know that I LOVE this car. I’ve put 1500 miles on it (probably foolishly) but it’s too good not to drive.”

Craig, Southern California- Seller 3/15

Dear Paul and Ed Kramer,

I want to sincerely thank you both for your highly successful representation of my Porsche through this sale processes.  It’s hard enough to believe that a unique Porsche hot rod, with a very limited numbers of buyers, can be detailed, photographed, marketed, and sold within a 24 hour period.  The fact that the sale price was almost $15,000 more than my expectation it almost unbelievable.  I can not thank you enough.  I will highly recommend Autokennel to anybody considering selling their Porsche.

Best regards,

Craig

Hi Paul,

Thank you again for taking care of us! The process was entirely painless. I’ve never had an experience like this from a dealer.

Shan took the car out last night and she drove it with an ear-to-ear smile the whole time. She’s definitely a happy customer!

Thank you for adding me to the list. Perhaps I may find a fun car for myself!

Hey Paul, I wanted to say thanks again for a really great experience selling my 89 Turbo with you guys. Your wealth of information on these cars was invaluable, your help in arranging repairs for things that needed to be addressed, and your valuations were spot on. I was wary of consigning the car to be honest, but working with you guys was a great experience and the car fetched a great price in a short time on the market. I couldn’t be happier, thank you!

Cheers,

Thanks again for everything, Paul.  I wanted to make sure you knew we are very happy with the car and also have really appreciated all the time and expertise you shared with us throughout this process.  You and your dad have been a pleasure to work with and went above and beyond our expectations every step of the way.  You both definitely made the experience of buying our first classic car significantly easier and a whole lot less stressful than we ever imagined.  We’ll be very proud to tell anyone who asks where this awesome Yenko Nova came from to visit Auto Kennel (but I doubt you’ll see another one like this for a LONG time!)

Cheers,

Ben

Paul’s knowledge of, and very accurate presentation of the cars he offers is extremely valuable.  The descriptions are spot on right down to the quality of the photographs and accurate presentation of color.  I made my purchase with photographs and information Paul provided online and through a phone conversation with complete confidence.  When I picked up the car it was everything I expected and then some.

Dean, Yorkshire, England- Buyer 10/13

Good Morning Paul / Ed,

Just to let you that the car eventually arrived this lunchtime at my house, I’ve yet to go through the trunk to see if all the bits and pieces including the reg. docs are there but a quick glimpse and it seems to be  there. I’ve given it a quick wash to remove some of the transport grime and its come up nice. I’ve attached a few photos to see it arriving in Yorkshire, England!!!

PS.  The car started first turn of the key on collection I was told which is a good sign and I’ve driven it round the block and it felt like it did in October.  (How time flies, was it that long ago??)

Thanks again.

Hopefully we’ll be over later on in the year again so I’ll call in and try and resist buying anything else…. Ha ha Ha.

Loving the email updates you send me with events and cars for sale…….its a great idea to get folk interested.

1979 Porsche 911 SC Targa

Larry, Michigan – Buyer 6/13

Hi Paul, The 79 Targa is running  great, we just attended 2013 Porsche Parade in Traverse City, Mich. It was great to hang out with hundreds of like minded passionate Porsche fans. We met Peter Porsche and the board of directors from Germany and the PCA what an organization. Then to ride in the actual Parade was surreal, they lined up up by year and put us with some Killer Air-Cooled 911’s. The Targa  didn’t disappoint, Jim’s paint with the subtle green metallic drew many, many compliments. Buying this car from you has really changed my life…for the better.

Take care, Larry

Paul,

I wanted to provide an update about the 71 Vette and a photo if you would like to forward along. The car has been great and I was even able to find some similar sized tires which will get installed today. The picture was from last weekend when [my wife] took her brother, who was in town for Easter, to the Rock Store. Thanks again for such a positive buying experience.

“Having bought and sold multiple cars with Auto Kennel, I am most impressed by their service once the checks have cleared.

Paul has been professional, helpful and friendly in working thru all the details of delivery, sorting and follow-up items AFTER the sale.

It’s the mark of a real professional, a true enthusiast and a generally great guy. ”

1986 Porsche 930 911 Turbo Coupe

Dave, Seattle, Washington – Buyers 10/12

Paul;

Thanks again for hooking me up with the ’86 930 Turbo.  It was all you said it was and even more and this is so important for out of area buyers like myself.  You never know what you are getting when dealing remotely but your portrayal of the car was spot on and the pictures and supporting information was what buyers need.  The actual negotiations, inspection and purchase was painless and straight forward. If I ever get tired of the 930, doubtful, I will back in touch for another sweet ride like this one.

Regards,

We weren’t looking for another Pontiac, but when we saw this car, we knew we had to have it.  We contacted Paul.  He and his father could not have been more helpful; communication was great the entire time.  We love the car, and it was exactly as described (and more!!).  We’ll definitely deal with AutoKennel again if we have the opportunity.  Thanks again.

Many thanks again for all your help,

John and Suzette

2001 Chrysler Prowler Roadster

Mulholland Edition

George, United Arab Emirates, Middle East – Buyer 4/12

I live in the United Arab Emirates, Middle East, and I have always wanted to own a Prowler here but there are none here and I had to ship it from the US. I was really hesitant at first because there are many procedures and it’s a hard job to get done. However dealing with Paul made the whole thing very easy and smooth, although I troubled him a lot because I was really scared of scams, as many people warned me of online purchasing. Paul described the car with full honesty and I didn’t believe it until I saw the car since it was better than described. He also helped me in finding the right shipping company and sorted out all the formalities for the shipment. Long story short, there aren’t many people like Paul nowadays and I recommend you deal with him and Autokennel regardless of where you are and what you want. Thanks again Paul and as I said before this is not the last time we make business.

Jay, So. California – Seller 5/12

Hello Paul,

Just a quick note of thanks on your quick and professional work in selling my 1980 Porsche 911SC Targa. The entire experience from start to finish was pleasant and pain free. The combination of your knowledge and marketing abilities generated a quick sale at a net price to me that probably exceeded what I could have done on my own without any of the hassle. I have already passed your name on to others and will continue to do so. I will also be contacting you first when I begin the search for my “Next Car”!

Here’s to your continued success!

Dear Paul and Ed

Having had the pleasure to be in your driving posse at some rallies, let me just say that you sell cars just like you drive! The whole thing was no hassle, light touch but always communicative, and the next thing you know everything was done. I would do it all again with AutoKennel.

Frank, The Netherlands – Buyer 9/09

Hi Paul,

Picked up the car yesterday and I must say: NICE!
I am very happy with the car!
I am very happy with the way the transaction worked out (very smooth) and the quick responses from your side made buying an unseen overseas car (in real life) very easy.
The car has hardly any surprises as it was described in detail by you (both written as with pictures).
It was a pleasure and we will meet again!

Peter, Germany – Buyer 11/10

Hello Paul,

Today my son and I came back from our Florida trip. I visited [your client] in his house last Thursday and saw the nice Targa which meets my expectations absolutely. It was a pleasure to make that deal with you because everything around the vehicle was as serious as you described it. This cannot be taken for granted nowadays and therefore I appreciate it.

I hope this was not the last Porsche deal we made together.

Best regards

Peter

Hi Paul,

Thank you very much with all your help and honest descriptions of the Targa. After 5 weeks on the boat and a week in storage the car started second try and I drove it onto the trailer and then brought it back to Devon.  So Los Angeles to Devon in the UK where it has already caused a stir.

I would happily recommend anyone to you do feel free to pass my number…

Once again many thanks,

1967 Porsche 911 S Targa

Steve, New Jersey – Buyer 5/10

I wanted to send this e-mail in order to express how pleased I was when my 67 911S Targa finally arrived.  It was more than  Paul described. It’s first stop in NJ before coming to my home was at a shop in NJ well known for it’s work on Porsches. Although I was very hesitant to buy a car sight unseen I had heard many great things about Paul and his shop.  The reception the car received upon arrival in my friend’s shop was overwhelming.  The clients who visit the shop on a regular basis to look at the work being done or just to hang out were floored by the quality of the car and how well it presented.  I am really at a loss for words to describe the car other than AWESOME.

Thanks to Paul I now own a car that was originally only a  dream.
