Although we don’t have to worry about driving through snow and ice in the Bay Area.  Your Porsche could probably use a little attention as the temperature is falling.

Is the heating and defrost system in your air-cooled 911 or 356 operating at full efficiency?  Not if the ducting has developed holes, the heater valves are stuck or not opening fully, or one of your blowers has quit.  We can have a look and make sure you are getting all the heat you can out of that system.

The Stable



The Stable was founded by Alan Klingen in 1975. He was trained by two specialists sent from the Porsche factory to support the growing number of Northern California Porsche owners.  The original building was actually a former horse stable on Sacramento Street in San Francisco, so naming the business was easy.

His passion for air-cooled Porsches made The Stable the go-to shop for all things 356 or 911.
Alan participated in supporting many restoration and racing projects over the years and the shop’s reputation grew Beyond the Bay Area.


It was time to find more space, and The Stable moved to it’s current location in the heart of San Francisco. With 14,000 square feet to fill with Porsches at the corner of Pine and Franklin Streets, there was room to grow.


This was another critical year for San Francisco’s oldest Porsche service shop.  After 28 years, Alan decided to finally put down his wrenches and enjoy a well-earned retirement, staying on as a technical adviser for the shop.
George Tam – his lead technician for 13 Years, and Engineer Brian Kirkis took over the operation and plan to provide the same excellent service for air-cooled cars that the Stable has been known for, while expanding parts and service offerings to the more recent models from Stuttgart.
