We’re a 911 shop.
(that’s our shop)
Welcome to Zuffenhaus Eurowerks:
We’ve specialized in Porsche service, repair, restoration, and fabrication – and proudly so, since 2001. Today, our focus is the air-cooled 911.
Our business has been built on three principles:
As enthusiasts ourselves, we have a personal interest in these cars and our goal is to exceed the standard of quality, attention to detail, and depth of product knowledge expected by our clients.
Accordingly, we stand by our work. Our workmanship and materials are warrantied for 24 months after your visit.
In pursuit of this standard, we employ specialized tools and the appropriate equipment to assist our effort; including Porsche factory tools & frame benches. Non-factory equipment that we employ includes Hunter Engineering’s Road Force Measurement System (Wheel Balancer), Damage-Free Tire Changer, & Optical Alignment System. We also design and build our own specialized equipment as needed, such as our in-house Bosch MFI testing/calibration station.
Over the years, our shop has evolved to suit our service objectives – currently 10,000 square feet dedicated to Porsche work, and includes the facilities needed for mechanical work ranging from simple oil services to complete rebuilds.
We provide mechanical services ranging from regular maintenance to complete rebuilding of air-cooled models.
Air-cooled Porsches are our forte. We’ve been maintaining, modifying, and building the luftgekühlt since the doors opened, and our expertise extends to all eras, short-wheelbase to 993. In addition to major rehabilitation and tuning, historic and structural modification, and sports-oriented enhancement and suspension setup, our in-house restoration capabilities include all aspects of rust remediation and chassis straightening, utilizing Porsche-specified and dedicated Celette frame benches.
Your patronage is important to us, and want you to have a positive experience at Zuffenhaus.
We strive to provide a pleasant atmosphere at our shop so that you and your family can feel comfortable when visiting, and communicate in a clear manner so as to fully understand your requests and properly meet your expectations.
For your convenience and to allow us to focus on your specific vehicle during its time with us, all service is by appointment only.
We will do our best to accommodate your scheduling needs, but as with any expert service provider, our schedule does fill quickly during certain times of the year. Being a smaller, more focused shop, the service schedule can runs same-week to several weeks out; whereas our restoration/special project schedule can have a 12-18 month lead time. Emergency work is given scheduling priority for the safety and convenience of our clientele. Cancellations, customer conflicts, and special service situations can occur, so contact us at your earliest convenience to schedule your visit.
When you arrive at Zuffenhaus Eurowerks, please use the Client Entrance on the east side of the building (we’re upstairs in Suite 100.) The client entrance is a glass door accessible via the parking lot on the left side of the property. For insurance reasons and to allow us to properly care for your Porsche, we will move your car from the client parking to the shop parking area behind the fence, and into/out of the shop area as necessary. When your work is completed there will be a final test drive, and you will find your 911 waiting for you in the client parking once again.
Similarly, we ask our clients to not enter shop areas, shop parking areas, or loading dock entrance unescorted – for both your safety and that of your car – in addition to maintaining the distraction-free environment in which to operate.
We understand that it can be difficult to make time during the workday to bring your 911 for its appointment. Many of our clients choose to drop off after hours or on weekends, using our Key Drop Box. If this is more convenient for you, call us and I’ll walk you through the drop off procedure and location of the key drop box.
Vehicles dropped off during the weekend will be moved into the building before that evening. (All client vehicles are stored indoors at Zuffenhaus.)

In North Carolina, before any service or repair can commence you must authorize us to work on your vehicle. The Zuffenhaus Eurowerks Client Authorization Form can be downloaded and brought with you, signed at our reception counter when you arrive, or can be found in the after-hours key drop box (printed on the face of your key envelope.)
As stated above, we warranty our workmanship and materials for 24 months/24,000 miles. Please feel free to review our warranty before your scheduled appointment.
Often the relationship begins even prior to the purchase of your Porsche, with our PRE-PURCHASE INSPECTION (PPI) Service.
The 911 will be inspected and critiqued according to five pages of criteria developed from our experience with these vehicles. While it is not our policy to persuade or dissuade you from purchasing a particular vehicle, we will make every available effort to discern the condition and quality of the automobile in question so that you can make the most informed decision possible. The mission is to facilitate your long-term involvement with the marque, and an informed investment is the best way to begin. The results of our inspection belong to you. Your PPI results will not be shared with anyone without your authorization.
If geography precludes Eurowerks’ involvement in your vehicle inspection process, the PRE-PURCHASE INSPECTION CHECKLIST is offered for download for your convenience and that of your chosen service provider.
If you already own your 911 and are bringing it for the first time, it will receive a complimentary 37-point checkover. This service is provided in order to establish a baseline of overall condition and advise you of components that may need mechanical attention in the near future. We’ll work with you to prioritize and develop a timeline strategy for addressing any issues that are revealed during the inspection – so you can focus on enjoying your car instead of worrying about unpleasant surprises.
