Meet Our Owner

  • Tony Callas

    Owner

    As a precocious kid growing up around his father's sport car shop, Tony's mechanical talent was obvious. At age ten he was servicing Porsches. By sixteen, he was attending factory seminars during the week and crewing a race team on the weekend. In an effort to add to his growing skill, Tony accepted positions at several highly regarded shops in the L.A. area, including the renown Vasek Polak dealership.

    Tony's ambition, through all of this, was to open a small, specialized shop of his own, a goal he realized in 1991. While running a successful and growing business, Tony's love of racing hasn't diminished. Tony was a crew member on the Daytona and LeMans winning Rohr Motorsport team, competing in the GT-1 and 2 classes internationally.

    I requested a 20k service quote on my 13’ 911s. Tony responded and asked if I was asking for his lowest quote. I said “Yes”. He wrote back and said that their shop wouldn’t be a good fit for me. I guess because I was asking for their best price. His attitude, I gathered , was that if I had to ask his price, I couldn’t afford. Been driving Porsches before this person was born. Never been treated like that by anyone. Don’t waste your time.

    John, With all respect, I apologize if I insulted you in any way. I meant no condescension or ill to you personally, so please let me explain.

    My father had a Porsche repair shop since I was 8 years old, I grew up in that Porsche shop in Austin, Texas.

    Callas Rennsport was a referral only business for over 15 years until the internet arrived, around 1997.

    Since the internet, brick and mortar businesses' lives have been greatly affected; we receive calls, emails and notes constantly with people requesting pricing only estimates, and asking if they can supply their own parts. Now, having said that, I understand that you have limited factors in comparing shops and businesses from one to another so that leaves us with the internet, places such as Yelp.

    The only way I have been able to weed out some of the many requests is to ask if a person is interested only in the lowest price, if "yes", I feel that it is better handled by informing people that we are not the best fit for those looking for the 'lowest price'.

    As the owner and originator of Callas Rennsport, I have been here every day for over 26 years and have made sure that each and every car is up to the stringent Callas Rennsport standards.

    For the many of those that know us, know that we have gone to extreme measures to make sure that every client and their automobile is treated with the upmost of honesty, care and integrity.

    Thank you for listening,

    Tony
