- John G.
I was interested in a Macan and had visited the dealership near me. I had always had good experience with Boardwalk with Audi and was set to purchase my Macan from their sister dealership. Unfortunately Boardwalk sold out to a national chain and the quality of the dealership has suffered greatly. You may as well be buying a television, the experience is lost.
I was still set on a Macan so I looked for other dealerships in the metroplex and found that Park Place had received many favorable reviews. I live in Frisco and Park Place was more than double the distance as the aforementioned dealership - in short, it was well worth the extra distance and time. The dealership is everything that has been mentioned prior - nothing but professional and class.
I was placed with Jim randomly as a salesman, but I could not be happier. Jim was thoughtful, considerate and what I most appreciated, a true fun of Porsche. He actually had an understanding of the product and we talked intimately about Porsche, driving and all the periphery. I cannot recommend Jim highly enough and guarantee that I will visit him again on my next purchase.
"First Porsche Purchase"
Wow, this is my first Porsche purchase. Jim Lannom is the salesman that showed first show me the Macan when I started seriously looking. I am so glad he was my sales consultant. He made the process so easy and was extremely patient and accommodating with all my questions as I pondered the purchase. He made the car purchase decision so extremely easy. I cannot more fully recommend Jim and the dealership any higher. I am extremely happy.
"A chance occurrence"
So I'm at my favorite Starbuck's on a Saturday morning recently when I noticed many Porsches begin to fill in spaces in the parking lot. Soon it was a carpet of many colors with new, gently-owned, and new Porsches. Then I spied my favorite salesperson, Jim Lannom, from Park Place Porsche in Dallas. As we talked he mentioned that one of his clients had just traded his 2014 Turbo S cab for a new one just the previous day. I asked Jim about the car, found out it was Rhodium Silver with full black/white leather interior. "I'll meet you at the dealership in 30 minutes" I saId, realizing that this car would sell quickly. Jim met me at Park Place and showed me the car...and I bought it! I am thrilled with the car and with Jim's kindness and interest in me as well as our mutual love for Porsche automobiles. This is my 3rd Porsche purchase with him and he appears to be as pleased as I am. If I were to sell cars for Porsche. I would work at Park Place Porsche and try my best to be another Jim Lannom!
"What a great car buying experience!"
I have always hated buying a car from a dealership, but this purchase was different. Jim Lannom made my car purchase a great experience. I didn't feel pressured at all and Jim was so helpful introducing me to my car and how everything worked.
"An extremely high level of service"
I have now purchased six Porsches from Jim, the last one being a GT4 in March. I will take delivery of a GT3 RS in a couple of weeks, and that will be my seventh Porsche I have purchased from JIm. The level of service I receive from him is very high, and he is professional, follows-up, and provides advice at every step of the sales process. For example, over three years ago, he told me to place a deposit on a GT3 RS, and I did so. When I wanted a "paint to sample" (PTS) color, he encouraged me to make a quick decision before the PTS order window closed. I put in my request, it was approved, and within a couple of weeks, the PTS order window had closed.
I have referred many friends to Jim, and they are very happy clients of Jim, and Park Place. I should also add that Park Place sells hard to get models (GT3, GT4, RS, R, GT2 etc.) at MSRP. Most dealers do not adhere to this sales philosophy, and charge a significant premium over MSRP. They are a highly ethical dealership.
"Pleasant, comfortabe, no worries buying experience"
My vehicle purchase with Jim Lannom was such a good experience for the following reasons.
Jim is kind, curious, respectful and intelligent. A real gentleman. Jim defiantly makes me want to do more business with Park Place and recommend it to my friends and family. He was able to answer all my questions accurately and with patience. I had a lot of questions. Jim was attentive to all my needs.
I've bought a lot of cars, including Porsche's from other dealers, and this was by far the best buying experience.
"A very positive experience."
My experience with Park Place Porsche and their sales staff was a very positive experience in every way.
Neal Brown and Jim Lannom did everything they could to make my purchase of a new Porsche smooth and easy.
Everything was as promised and they went out of their way to make me feel appreciated as a customer.
I have purchased many cars from many dealers over the years, but would have to say that Park Place is on the top of my list as the dealer that I would want to buy from again, and the salesmen that I would want to work with as well.

"From the initial contact to the point in time I drove off..."
From the initial contact to the point in time I drove off with my car and since taki9ng delivery, Jim Lannom has been the single best example of a professional car sales person I have ever met. His approach has been courteous and effcient from the get go - JIm has attended to and insured every one of my needs have been met. Park Place and Jim represent the best automobile buying experience one could ask for that made my trip to Daollas to collect the car worth every minute of my time. I will go back to Park Place / Jim as the first stop I make when I start looking for my next car.
"After testing several cars including the new M5, 650I,..."
After testing several cars including the new M5, 650I, Audi S7 & RS5 I happened to be driving by Porsche on Lemmon ave on a Monday night after work. I met Jim Lannom while looking at the cars in the pre-owned section. We chatted for a few minutes and proceeded to view the new 991. Long story short I picked out the car I wanted that night. I negotiated with Jim and His manager Jeff Clarimont Tuesday and picked the car up Wednesday after lunch. Coming from a Prestige Audi S5 manual which was a good car, but never as special as it should have been, the Porsche 911 is in a different league. The follow up from Jim has been great. He was a gentleman, a Porsche enthusiast and easy to work with. I would suggest Jim to friends, family and CoWorkers. Less than two weeks later I had my girlfriend buy her new Mercedes at Park Place.
I am already looking forward to my next 911C4S
"I was looking for a used Boxster. Jim Lannom treated me..."
I was looking for a used Boxster. Jim Lannom treated me as if I was buying a brand new car. Very personal and wanting to make sure I had all the information for me to make my decision. He introduced me to the Service Manager, Justin Nevitt, who took the time to give me the history of the car and a feeling of comfort that I would be buying a very good car.
I have been a long time proud Park Place Lexus customer and the Park Place Porsche team provided me with another great Park Place experience. I would highly recommend them! Chuck
