    Just take a look at Aaron’s Insta profile – @gtsdaddy – and you’ll find him at 4-years old in superman underwear, cape-and-all, in front of his uncle’s “Light Bronze Metallic” 964. Clearly, the Porsche passion started early, maybe even before he was born.

    Aaron grew up in a small town in the southeast called North Miami Beach. Car culture runs deep in Miami, where Aaron drove and modified everything from Nissan’s turbocharged 300zx to supercharged Mercedes amg’s and plenty more.

    Aaron spent a few years on the California coastline before planting his roots here in Colorado. For nearly ten years, he founded and was the CEO of two packaged food companies before joining the family-owned team here at Prestige Imports Porsche.

    Rest assured, working with Aaron will result in transparency, honesty, and talks of beach-life in some shape or form.

    I was born and raised in Colorado and have two beautiful, talented, and extremely smart daughters, ages 23 and 18. Both are CU Buffs attending school in Boulder. The eldest is class of 2019 and the younger class of 2023. I am incredibly blessed to have such extremely bright and very beautiful daughters.

    I’m an avid golfer and skier, so the Colorado lifestyle has been an absolutely perfect fit for my entire life.

    I have worked in the auto industry since 1989. I spent some time on the sales side of the business and have managed stores in a variety of roles; but I’ve found my passion in the finance office. I appreciate the opportunity to assist and guide our guests in the direction that best aligns with their financial priorities and to be able to satisfy their automotive needs.

    Corwin Fergus

    I’m a third-generation car guy from Columbus, OH. My grandfather and great uncle ran one of the five original distributors for Volkswagen in the US. They had a Porsche, Audi, and Volkswagen dealership and began racing in the 1950’s. My father followed in their footsteps working with Porsche for a short time and then as a professional race car driver in the 80​’s and 90’s. Since racing is in my blood, I also become a professional driver in 2012. I even won my first professional championship in a Porsche Cayman!

    I grew up around amazing cars and have always loved driving Porsche’s. I have owned two Macan’s – my favorite being the Macan GTS. ​In 2013, I become a Porsche Brand Ambassador and have been with the brand since. My wife and I moved to Colorado in 2020 and I found my second home here at Prestige Imports.

    Warren Kaye

    Porsche Brand Ambassador

    Prestige Imports’ Porsche Brand Ambassador Warren Kaye has worked in the automotive industry for close to sixteen years. Recently, he completed the sale of his two thousandth vehicle. While he readily admits that some “people have sold more” cars and have done so “faster,” Kaye’s career sales volume is a lofty number that merits celebration.

    Even though he’s a sixteen year veteran of the industry, the business of selling cars still poses challenges for Kaye. “I would love to say that the job gets easier. I mean, the processes involved with a sale become easier. But the longer you’re in the business, the more you expect from yourself. So, in that respect, it’s never easy.” Of course, Kaye is quick to mention that, “after sixteen years, it’s hard to imagine doing anything else.”

    As relatively new Coloradoan, Kaye carves out time to explore the natural wonders, scenic views, and open roads that make this state so special. “I love driving,” he says, “I’ve owned an Audi A6 for 5 or 6 years now… and just bought a Porsche Boxster.” When his work schedule and the weather permits, he enjoys heading up to the Conifer area for a drive, as well as “going for a hike.” Occasionally, he also “brings [his] pole and do some fly fishing.”

    I have been with Prestige since 2012, but have been a part of the dealership since I was a kid because my father worked here throughout my childhood. I enjoy working with Porsche vehicles and the people that drive them. I believe there is not a better brand to be a part of. In my off time, I enjoy hanging out with my three kids and wife. I also enjoy playing music, especially drums and guitar. I can’t wait to see what Porsche has in store for us in the future.
