This month we are happy to introduce another longtime member of the Porsche world in Houston. Say hello to Robert Lee Neal.
A Porsche Veteran
Robert was born and raised in Ohio. He moved to Texas in the late 1970s. In 1978, Robert started selling Porsche’s for the dealership Southpoint Porsche/Audi. During the next 13 years, he achieved a national sales ranking of #1 in the USA for 10 consecutive years. He ultimately purchased a portion of the dealership. In the years to follow, he bought and sold 2 different high line dealerships in the Houston area.
He is the founder of Victorymotorcars and has been involved in new and pre-owned Porsche sales for 40 years.
Victorymotorcars has combined experience into one location to deliver the best possible product and services available today. They specialize in Porsche models from 1955 to 1998 – the air-cooled 911s. Robert specializes in repairing these air-cooled Porsches. Since June 2007, Victorymotorcars has offered a complete service department to its customers.
Robert also has a worldwide Porsche shipping company. During the early years of 2003-2010, he became a strong exporter of Porsches to Kiel Germany and to the rest of Europe. Thanks to the Euro/USD rate, he shipped close to 20 cars per month. He has a long list of customers and friends in Mexico and South America, Europe, and the Far East.
For the last 3 years, they have been restoring a 1970 Porsche 911 model for a Mexican customer who brought the 911 to Houston for restoration by Robert’s team.
Robert has been a member of LSRPCA for 12 years. Victorymotorcars has always been very active since it’s beginning supporting Concourse events. The company was the primary sponsor for 7 years in all club activities in the Houston Area. His company brought tract support for 3 years providing 3 cars. He has in his office a fantastic trophy donated by the Porsche Club of America “Lone Star Region” in appreciation and thanks for the great sponsorship during 2008. Fantastic recognition!
Besides restoring classic Porsches, Robert also enjoys restoring antique items as a hobby.
