In 1982 aged 14 a young man called Andrew Mearns used a small inheritance to buy his first VW Beetle for £125. He later went on to sell it in 1987 for £3,750 – and Gmund Cars was conceived.
Passionate about air-cooled he aspired to own a Porsche and read and collected all he could find on the brand.
In 1989, his dream was fulfilled with the purchase of a 1979 Porsche 911 SC, and he was hooked!
Fast forward 30 years, Gmund Cars is now a small but equally passionate team of 7 specialising in the sale, servicing and restoration of classic Porsche and Volkswagen Cars. In all that time, Andrew has never forgotten the thrill of the purchase of his first Porsche and strives to ensure that experience is replicated for all who deal with him and his team.
What people say about us
Phillip G Watson
Andrew and his team embody the ethos of Gmund. Enthusiasts who love their cars and want their customers to share in the experience. Gmund are fervent supporters of our club ( Porsche 924 owners) and frequently hold open days to allow owners and prospective owners a wonderful opportunity to get close to the cars and share the knowledge and passion for all things Porsche.
Excellent company, Lovely People. THE place to go for only the best PORSCHE will do!
Great people, very knowledgeable and friendly. Always interesting stock, not your run of the mill, boring Porsches.
Thought I'd write a quick review of the service received from Gmund and Andrew Mearns. I contacted Andrew regarding a low mileage 944 Cab and as we are based in South Wales and Gmund is not as close as we would like I decided to take a chance on their reputation. I wasn't disappointed, I bought the car unseen (2nd Porsche I have done this with) and the car was delivered by Andrew's company to my door free of charge. The car has been amazing and any little glitches (there weren't many) have been resolved immediately through a specialist based in South Wales. I would highly recommend Gmund and the after sales service they have provided is exceptional. They will be my first port of call for my next car.
