At Panzer, we treat every vehicle with the same level of passion and performance. We always make it right
Panzer Performance was founded in 2012 by Tom Panzarella. His love for all things related to the German Automobiles we service was the driving force in opening his own shop, working after hours in a small garage Tom knew Panzer was destined for bigger things. He grew up in his father's Vw shop from a very young age, learning a lot about the job, the industry, and the cars. Tom attend MTC for graduating with a degree in automotive technology. Like his father Tom also worked for Vw for several years before finally opening Panzer during the 9-5 hours in 2016.
In 2017 the Panzer Team grew with the addition of a new Technician Chris Benson. Chris, MTC graduate, a former Marine, and a former Vw technician was perfect fit at Panzer. Chris is a family man and a die hard Vw TDI fan.
2018 was a banner year for us at Panzer Performance. We brought on Scott Rawson to fulfill the role of Service writer and marketing manager. Scott has been a car enthusiast from day one, and loves his B5 S4 more than any man should.
We also we lucky to add Joey Layman as our third technician. Joey a graduate of Sarasota Technical Institute and a former BMW technician, brings more expertise to our team. Joey is an advit BMX rider and has possible the best looking dog of all time.
This new facility was opened in January of 2016. We wanted to create the best possible area to service these vehicles. Before and After
