Pacific Power Motorsports was founded in 2006 by three partners, Eric Leman, Wayne VanNorsdall and
Jeff Kost. The business was founded to enable the partners to pursue their passion for Porsche cars. The
original mission of PPM was to proactively lead the development of the local Porsche racing community
while providing a much needed high quality shop to maintain service and repair Porsche cars. Over
time, given the owners long experience and passion for not just Porsche cars, but all German cars, Pacific
Power Motorsports has evolved into a successful German auto repair and service shop.
