  • Jim Whitney
    Sales Manager - Pre-Owned
    480. 994. 9000

    Although I am originally from New York City, it has been a pleasure living in Arizona since 1966. Ever since I sold my 1st car in 1969, I guess you can say that the automotive industry has been the life that I share with my loved ones. Aside from my focus on customer service and the automotive industry, my passion is collecting fine and historical timepieces. The only thing that surpasses my passion for collecting timepieces is the admiration that I have for precision engineered Porsche vehicles. I am proud to be able to represent such a prestigious and well-respected company such as Porsche Chandler.

My husband and I enjoy spending time hiking and camping with our two dogs Britany, and Molly. I spent 20 years in DuBois, PA in the freezing cold. I moved to Arizona about 17 years ago, and I love the sun and the heat. I am an avid hiker, and have hiked trails all over the Phoenix area, as well as the Grand Canyon rim to rim, and backpacked Yosemite. If you don't see me at work, there's a good chance you will find me on a hiking trail.

    My childhood was spent growing up in Southern California, while my 20's were spent in Michigan. I've been in Arizona for over 10 years and I absolutely love it here. I've been an auto enthusiast my entire life, yet I have only been involved in the automotive industry, as a profession, for the past few years. I've owned numerous performance cars, but my Porsche is my prized possession. We have a very solid team environment at Porsche Chandler. We individually and collectively look forward to making your visit with us memorable and informative.

    Originally, I'm from Toledo, Ohio but later I moved to Arizona in 1978. While growing up in the city of Mesa, I remember always loving fast cars and dreaming of owning a Porsche 911 just like the one on the poster I had pinned to my bedroom wall. My parents owned a small dealership and I myself have been involved in the automotive industry since 1993. After a long day, I enjoy going home and spending time with my two dogs and my pet tortoise.

Most of the time I spent growing up in the east valley of the Phoenix area, with exception to my time spent at Dartmouth College where I not only received my college degree, but I was a Division 1 Pitcher for the college baseball team. I take pride in being a "people person" and cannot wait to serve our clients in a truly exceptional way and share my passion for the Porsche brand.

    I was born and raised in Omaha, Nebraska. I've been a car nut my whole life. My first remote control car was a Porsche race car, and I've loved Porsches ever since. I grew up around racing; my dad was a very avid member of the SCCA since the early 60's with several trophies for road racing. At the age of 12, I even got into go-kart racing. I've been working in automotive since 1999 and moved to AZ in 2003. In my spare time, I'm spending time with my wife and all of our pets.
