About Us

Werks 1, “The Porsche Shop in Sea Cliff” New York’s best kept Porsche repair secret is owned and operated by Dave Hammers and his son Michael.  The shop dates back to the 60s when John Howe operated the shop.  Dave started as John’s apprentice and took over in 1985.  Dave’s experience and knowledge is second to none in the world of air cooled (and now water cooled!) Porsches, with intimate knowledge of the earliest 356s to the latest GT3s.  A long time racer, Dave knows the importance of perfect repairs covering everything from full Concours restoration to routine service.  Dave’s customer base is primarily made of long time customers who will not let anyone else touch their Porsche.  The ultimate compliment.
