Default GT car / Salesman - Shiraaz Sookralli - Champion Porsche's VP of Marketing

Posting something unusual trying to enquire if any rennlister's have had any buying/selling experiences (good or bad) with Shiraaz Sookralli. If so, would you be kind enough to share with me? Private message is OK if that's preferred. With some recent events, I'm trying to learn more. Thanks in advance.

What's going on with Champion Porsche? I keep seeing chatter about some sh*t going down there.

Anyone defrauded should contact Roy Diaz - Champion Porsche's Attorney.

UPDATE on STORY

Fraudulently stolen deposits in question totaling around $2.5 million that he took from customers for Porsche GT car deposits.

Shiraaz Sookralli was VP of Marketing at Champion Porsche and handled all GT car sales and allocations. They are the #1 volume Porsche dealer in the USA. He is now missing and on the run.

He set up his own shill company called Champion Autosports and took deposits for Porsche GT car allocations through it.

He is now missing. He was also involved in some fraudulent activity at Champion Porsche earlier this year and last year regarding a 911R. He was allowed to continue his employment with them after that which allowed him to further his $2.5MM fraud. He has supposedly been with Champion Porsche around 10 years.

There are PDF's of public court filings linked below on the 911R fraud incident and this new one on the stolen $2.5MM. His wife Devika Budhram is also listed as an accomplice.

It looks as if Champion IS NOT honoring their deposits right now, but directing victims to their attorney. Champion is also calling themselves a "victim". Bad customer relations treating their customers like this. They have offered no apologies and management isn't taking victims calls.

I feel very sorry for the guys who were taken advantage of here. Hopefully some resolution by PCNA / Porsche Cars North America and Champion Porsche here happens.

What a joke this whole Porsche GT car deposit thing is. Some USA dealers are probably holding a couple million $$ each in interest free $$.

After the tragic loss of their Dad , Champion's Principle owner , the sons are taking on the fathers duties and with the support and continued leadership of Jim Hahn and many Sr. Brand Ambassadors and their outstanding service department again with deep experience the dealership will continue being a Champion , Hugely Dedicated Team (Family).

Let me guess, another broken promise? MSRP deal gone bad?
We pushed that subject pretty well in the Dealer Loyalty thread - no holding back there

Think he's listed as a VP of Marketing.

NOT an owner

Nothing more than trying to learn about a salesmanís reputation. Itís not intended in anyway other than that. Iíve heard wonderful things about Champion. I thought a forum was meant to engage and exchange. Some folks as a General note, take things totally out of perspective.
