What We Do

Autobahn Extremist was founded in 1997 by, Christopher R. Moore and was born from his pursuit for perfection and his passion for Porsche.  We are a one stop Porsche shop and proud to say we do it all!  We have the more equipment than the local Porsche dealerships and our expertise really puts them to shame.  We do tires, maintenance, race prep, build our own engines, and transmissions, powdercoat, paint, concours and full Restoration.  We have not been stumped yet.

Our new Avon Lake facility is a little smaller but we offer our same O.C.D. attention to detail.  By appointment only.

Engine Building

Chris Moore, Autobahn’s resident mechanical artist has been mechanically inclined his entire life.  At the age of 8, he put together a motorcycle his friend’s dad promised “if you can put put this bike together you can ride it”. He did put that bike together but never did get to ride it.

Chris is a master engine builder who meticulously address every part, right down to the patina of the bolts!  When building an engine, Chris ensures that every component is polished, re-plated, painted and refinished to OEM specs.   Our customers can attest that his engines make their Porsches’ fast and reliable.

To ensure that your engine is tuned to perfection, we use our own in-house Mustang chassis dyno to develop the perfect blend of horsepower and torque.


While serving in the U.S. Air Force in Germany, Chris Moore became acquainted with Technischer Uberwachungsverein (TUV), Germany’s Technical Monitoring Association.  TUV requires every dealership or independent shop to repair any safety related issues found on a vehicle.

Chris embraces the spirit of TUV at Autobahn Extremist, inspecting every client’s car for safety related items whenever a car is in for service.

Autobahn maintains, upgrades, and restores all generations of Porsche from 356’s to 991’s.  Whether you just need a proper 4-wheel alignment…or are looking a for shop that can balance you wheels without scratching the rims….or have an unresolved issue with which other shops have thrown in the towel, then Autobahn is the place for your Porsche.

We save the originality of your Porsche and abide by the COA.  If you’re entering a prepared class we style your car in an appealing way that honors the marque.

What Our Clients Say About Us

I met Chris in 2002 when I started turning a 924S street car into a race car. He’s been a huge help in making —and keeping—the car trackworthy. I have confidence in the car because I trust Chris and know he won’t let the car hit the track until it’s safe and fast.
Dan Davis-
The people of Autobahn Extremist are more than just superbly knowledgeable about Porsches. They are passionate about Porsches. They live, breathe, eat, sleep Porsches. From routine maintenance to street upgrades to all-out racing development, Chris Moore is the most talented and creative and customer-friendly Porsche technician you will ever find.
Mike Marn-
I stopped going to dealer repair shops when I met Chris and Debbie Moore. Their work is reliable and timely. But, more than anything else, they are honest. Chris doesn’t try to replace parts that still have life in them. He doesn’t try to pad his bill with bogus charges. He’s down to earth and takes the time to explain why something needs to be done. He’s creative and is always cooperative. Chris and Deb treat my cars like they treat their own.
Jim Stipanovich-
The car runs great and the brakes are fantastic! Nice to have a stable steering wheel too! Autobahn does EVERY kind of mechanical service for any Porsche – well equipped including dyno! Engine building a particular strength and full racecar services. Very satisfied with results – a Porsche service goldmine. No “parts changer” – REAL mechanic!
