We invite you to contact one of our Certified Porsche Specialists for information regarding Porsche. We look forward to hearing from you.

Phil Whitehead

Phil Whitehead | General Manager

I'll always remember the first Porsche I sold. It was a white 911 Carrera S Convertible. What an amazing feeling to hand someone the keys to their brand new Porsche!

Jason D'Arcy

Jason D'Arcy | Porsche Brand Ambassador Sales Manager

I'm originally from upstate New York. In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with lovely wife and 3 beautiful daughters. I also enjoy church, golf, soccer, track events, singing, and music.  I've been with Porsche since early 2012 and absolutely love being a Porsche Ambassador. My daughters are even able to pick out Porsches as we drive down the road.

Theresa Kramer

Theresa Kramer | Porsche Brand Ambassador Service Manager

I was born in New Richmond, WI and moved to North Carolina on a leap of faith and to escape all the snow. My primary hobby is woodworking, re-purposing, and restoring.  I am also Community Emergency Response Team certified for major disasters, which many people find to be an interesting fact about me. 

I love welcoming our clients to Porsche Southpoint. We are a family here, so our hope is that each client feels more like a family member than a client.

Woody Clark

Woody Clark | Finance Manager

I’m originally from Jacksonville, FL. I love working with and around cars because it's not the same thing everyday.  The first time I ever rode in a Porsche was around 1965/66.  I didn't have a driver’s license yet, but my friend did.  We stopped by a Porsche store, and a very kind salesman said he would take me for a spin.  I thought it was the coolest car I had ever been in.  My first Porsche was a 1975 914 2 liter. I'm on my fifth Porsche now.  I believe a car buying experience should be fun, easy, and confidence building.

Tom Roos

Tom Roos | Porsche Guru

I was born in New Jersey, but I’ve lived in Durham since the 80s and have been on the Porsche Southpoint team since 2013, when we were still located in Chapel Hill and doing business as Performance Porsche.

I have a deep interest in sports cars, and I believe that Porsche makes the ultimate sports car. I’ve owned a Porsche from every decade, and I currently own 1969, 1973, and 1997 models.

Kim Smith

Kim Smith | Porsche Brand Ambassador

I've worked in the automotive industry since 1972, with 25 years served in the service side of the business. I’ve been married for 45 years and I have three adult children. When I’m not having fun at the office, I like to spend my time woodworking and building furniture.  I also own eight acres of land, so my tractor has become my safe haven; it brings me peace.

Edwin Kratzat

Edwin Kratzat | Porsche Brand Ambassador

I was born in Ntondo, Democratic Republic of the Congo. My parents moved to here in the mid-80s, so I decided to follow them.  Something that people would find intriguing about me is my birth certificate does not have the place where he was born. Instead, it says Equator Zaire, because I was born on the Equator. I love the Porsche brand, and I plan to own at least three in the next 10 years.  I want a 1997 4S Coupe and a 2016 Boxster Spyder.

David Lilley

David Lilley | Porsche Brand Ambassador

I joined the sales team here at Porsche Southpoint in March 2018.

I enjoy reading...a lot. It's my personal obsession, especially World War II fiction, which often leads me to WWII non-fiction so I can better relate to the fictional characters I follow. I also enjoy space opera-type science fiction. Just give me a book and I can find my bliss. When I'm not reading, I'm surfing. 

I look forward to meeting you at Porsche Southpoint. Let's talk Porsche, books, and surfing.

Vicki Basting

I was born in Brevard, North Carolina, and moved to the Triangle when my husband was transferred with IBM. When I'm not at work, I like being out on the lake waterskiing or playing golf with my husband. I really enjoy spending time with my 12 grandchildren and three great-grandchildren.  I want to make sure that whatever client I encounter is taken care of above and beyond any of their expectations.

Manny Kratzat

Manny Kratzat | Porsche Renaissance Man

Many people don't know at first that my brother is Edwin Kratzat on the Porsche sales team here at Porsche Southpoint. My job is a little different. I'm the dealership Renaissance Man; I handle a hodgepodge of tasks, including inventory photography, shuttle service, and inventory lot control. I love it all! If you think we have a beautiful lot and photos for our website, please let me know; I enjoy the feedback.
