Not only do we service and build Porsches as a profession, but almost everyone in the shop has built, driven, and raced their own personal vintage Porsches.

Julian founded Werks 11 back in 2005 while serving in the US Army. Soon after, he retired from the Army to pursue Werks 11 full time. He apprenticed in several Porsche specialty shops in the United States as well as Europe. His total experience working on Porsches totals over 30 years.

Jason started at Werks 11 four years ago after retiring from the US Army with over twenty years of service. Obsessed with cars from a young age, Jason bought his first Porsche in 2004 and restored it from the ground up with Julian’s help. An air-cooled enthusiast, he drives a ’66 912, a ’77 911S, and is always working on a secret project or two on the side.

An experienced illustrator and graphic designer, Mike shifted his focus to a wide variety of all things racing before joining the team in 2018. With over 40 years of working on performance cars, hot rods, and race cars, including 11 years owning and operating Mulligan Racing Development, Mike considers himself, no matter how old the car is, to be a vintage racer.

Daelon came to us last fall expressing his goal of learning all things air-cooled. His ability to learn quickly has only added to his staggering skill set and have made him an integral part of the team. Daelon is the youngest at Werks 11 but don’t hold that against him. His work ethic and continual thirst for knowledge for all things Porsche makes him a valued asset to our team. We are very excited to be a part of working toward passing the torch to the next generation of air-cooled Porsche enthusiasts.

Incredibly talented, like his father Teo, Alexis keeps surprising us with more and more hidden skills. Whether he is prepping a vehicle for primer or paint, cutting rust, or buffing Alexis is thorough and has an eye for detail and a clear vision for each project he works on.

Rod, who is a Master Machinist, became first involved with Porsche in 1988 thus beginning a career that has so far spanned over 30 years of Porsche experience. In 1996, he got involved with vintage Porsche racing when he was with Ecurie Racing for a brief time. This led to a 911 project and then taking on clients to build projects for them. Rod joined a streetcar shop in San Diego that developed a vintage Porsche racing division. In this position, Rod became more involved with building engines and transmissions, including various rebuilding and replacing at racing events across the United States. He also spent a few years working with Wayne Baker at Personalized Auto Haus. On a side note, Rod was invited to join MENSA. He joined Werks 11 in early 2021 and we have reaped the benefits ever since.

Recently added to our team, we are pleased to have JR as our in-house upholsterer. He has been master upholsterer for 15 years. JR sat down one day and learned how to use a sewing machine. From that point, he has enjoyed this journey. His previous experience with vintage to newer cars has led him to Werks 11 and a chance to work on high end cars.

Some consider Ricky Bobby to be the best of all employees. She manages her time between howling at fire, police, and ambulance sirens, sleeping, searching for food, and belly scratches around the office.
