Tony Callas grew up in his father’s shop, Rennsport Porsche Works, in Sealy, Texas, and demonstrated mechanical talent at a very young age. At 10, he was servicing Porsches; at 16, he rebuilt his first engine; at 18, he went to the Porsche Factory School and began teching race cars on weekends.
In Los Angeles, Tony mentored under Adrian Gang at Edelweiss Porsche, Alwin Springer of ANDIAL, and the renowned Vasek Polak. Then, in February of 1993, the dream of Callas Rennsport became a reality with the opening of a one-bay shop at 24714 Crenshaw Boulevard in the Skypark Shopping Center. Quickly outgrowing this location, Callas expanded to our Hawthorne Boulevard address on Car Row, where we continuing growing today.
The Callas legacy includes an international racing history with Roock, Seikel, Champion, Peterson White-Lightning, and wins at the 24 Hours of Daytona and Le Mans, where Tony was Mechanic of the Year for Porsche in 2001.
Today, in addition to our service work, Callas Rennsport restores classic collector cars, including vintage 914s and 356s, and is one of two premiere shops in the country that service the 959s. We are proud of who we are and what we do.
