Why Choose Dougherty Automotive?

Specialized Professional Service

Dougherty Automotive Services of West Chester Pennsylvania was founded in 1977. We are a family-run service facility specializing in European cars.

Originally concentrating on Volvo and Saab, an expansion of marque coverage to include German cars, with special emphasis on Porsche, elevated our status to one of Southeastern Pennsylvania’s most comprehensive independent repair shops.

We are proud to have been providing excellent service for over 35 years and the loyalty of our customers is testimony to our commitment to be the best.

Racing Services

Dougherty Automotive Racing Services

In addition to maintaining a routine maintenance facility, Dougherty Automotive has established itself as a premier race car preparation shop. Realizing the growing interest in performance and track driving, we recognized the need for quality design and fabrication to provide customers with “specialized” vehicles.

This division of the business has grown to represent a significant portion of everyday operations. Dougherty constructed and prepared Porsches regularly participate in all Club “performance” events consistently placing in the top positions. A major factor in the success of Dougherty Automotive is the impressive background of their personnel, rich in racing experience, which rewards performance and general service customers with work that meets the highest standards.
