Porsche Albania, situated at Tirane-Durres Highway Km. 3, has entered the Albanian market in 2005 with a clear vision of bringing the experience of Porsche Holding in the fields of communication, sales and after sales in order that the Albanian customer could benefit from the experience of one of the largest automobile groups in Europe. 

At start up in the first year of business the company introduced two brands: Audi and SEAT. It took only one year to introduce the third brand ŠKODA in Albania. Three brands and more that 42 models have been bought to serve the needs and preferences of the Albanian customers.
