Hola beautiful people! Hope you are all doing amazing! It is wonderful to have you all here today. Welcome to another special feature on my blog post brought to you by my property development firm KMD GROUP CANADA! Today I am showcasing my visit to PFAFF Porsche where I met with Porsche specialist Alex Krigos. I recently purchased my very first Porsche from this dealership and their service has been quite outstanding.
Porsche is a German automobile manufacturer specializing in high-performance sports cars, SUVs and sedans. The Porsche company claims that over seventy percent of the cars they have ever built are still on the road today! How amazing is that!
PFAFF Porsche is located in Vaughan (just north of Toronto) and they describe their team as being “United by Cars”. Personally I have a long history as an architect designing car dealerships in my home country of Costa Rica. You can see more of my work in Costa Rica here http://katiamartenarq.com/ and I am always impressed by a good showroom. So it is safe to say that it was a delight for me to be in the PFAFF Porsche showroom.
PFAFF Porsche has a racing team and I was excited by this because I have been a racing enthusiast for most of my life. Just another reason why I really loved my experience here. As I mentioned previously, On this day I met with Porsche specialist Alex Krigos. Alex was the one who helped guide me in selecting the best Porsche for my needs. Below he explains how he came to be a part of the Porsche team.
Katia: How did you come to be a part of the PFAFF Porsche Team and what is something unique about the branch that you work in and feel free to expand on anything else you would like to share?
Alex Krigos: I have always been passionate about the Porsche brand and cars from as long as I can remember. From a young age I always wanted to own one and I bought my fist one at 25 years old. I have been with PFAFF since 2005 working at our Audi store and I joined the Porsche team in 2015. Working with other brands there is no comparison to Porsche. The reliability, quality and especially the drive and feed back you get. No other brand compares to the drive of the Cayenne, Macan or a 911 to use as a daily driver or a weekend vehicle. I drive a 911 and I look forward to every time I sit behind the wheel to drive to work or for leisure.
Katia: I am very interested in learning more about the racing team that your branch has. Can you expand on this?
Alex Krigos: PFAFF has been involved in Motorsports for many years. We have raced in many different series over the years (Audi, BMW, Porsche, VW, McLaren) to this year the IMSA series with our Porsche GT3R. Our team is managed by our long time Pfaff Employee Steve Bortolloti and our main drivers are Scott Hargrove and Zach Robichon.

What a joy to sit in one of the convertibles!
Alex gives me the keys to my new car!
The car of my choice! The Macan.
Isn’t she a beauty!
Had to give him some coffee from Costa Rica for his outstanding customer service!
Here is Ryan who presented me with a neat gift from the PFAFF Porsche team. He also spent about half an hour showing me how to use all the special features of the car. There were some super neat ones such as the ability for the driver and passenger to both answer calls on blue tooth at the same time. It will probably take me some time to get used to all the features but I am excited by the possibilities.
Discussing all the great features of the car.
Stepping into some of the other rides!
Don’t you just love this red color!
How about the blue?
We headed to the basement of the showroom and that is where some of their best cars are kept! Choices Choice Choices!
Okay everyone that brings me to the end of this blog post. It has always been a dream of mine to own a Porsche and I am thrilled to now be the proud owner of one.
Thank you to Alex Krigos and the rest of the PFAFF team (including Ryan Pappas and Helen Li) for making my experience a truly memorable one.
Until next time Love and Light always!
