I am proud to say that I have been a Carlsen team member for over 25 years.  Prior to coming to Carlsen Porsche, I was the general manager of Carlsen Subaru in Redwood City for 11 years.  It is extremely rewarding working in this family-owned, customer focused environment that sets Carlsen apart from other dealerships.   We retain a staff of employees who are passionate about the Porsche brand, and who are committed to helping you realize the full potential of your Porsche vehicle.  Thank you for the virtual visit. Hope to see you at the dealership soon.

Ray Kong

Ray Kong | Sales Consultant

One of my earliest childhood car-related memories is the first time I sat in a Porsche 911 (930 Air cooled) in Hong Kong. I can still vividly remember how it felt to open the door and sit in the front seat.  I have been lucky to have owned several Porsches during my life.  My current daily driver is a 40th anniversary 911 coupe that I bought from Carlsen.  I am also one of the co-owners and drivers of our Carlsen sponsored amateur autocross team that competes in local Porsche Club of America Golden Gate Regional events.  I joined Carlsen Porsche in 2015. I have attended many great Porsche training and new vehicle launch events, and I pride myself on my product knowledge.  I speak English, Cantonese 廣東話, Mandarin 普通話, and some Japanese.   Please let me help you find or build the Porsche of your dreams, and realize many, many smiles per mile.
