Michael Culhane | Sales Manager

My Porsche passion started in 2009 when I joined Porsche, from the iconic 911, to the perfectly balanced Cayman, and the only vehicle that truly puts (Sports) in SUV, the Cayenne. As much as we think the car is the star, it’s our clients that make it such an honor to represent Porsche. Erin and I enjoy cooking, travel, working in our perennial gardens, and most importantly spending time with Brendan, Clare, Morgan, and Liam. We have enjoyed many days at swim meets, volleyball matches, football, basketball, and baseball games. When time allows, cycling and practicing bonsai are where I find relaxation.

I have been in the auto industry for 34 years. I focused on selling for the majority of my career, and 7 years ago I decided to jump into management. My wife Carol and I have been married since 1982. We enjoy boating on the St. Croix River in the summertime and have been enjoying the scenery since 1984. We love trying new and different restaurants. We believe Minneapolis and St. Paul have the best restaurants to try with the Porter House being one of our favorites. Our family and friends are foremost in our lives. I look forward to meeting you when you visit our dealership.

David Pfuhl | Porsche Brand Ambassador

I have been passionate about Porsche vehicles ever since I was a little boy with my own paper route. I have owned 4 Porsches in the past with the 1987 911 Turbo being my favorite. I started selling cars while still in school and have been in the business ever since. I feel fortunate to be able to sell the finest cars on the market because that allows me to work with the nicest and most interesting clientele. My wife Jamie and I are both lifelong Minnesotans. I am an avid bicyclist, and enjoy reading and renovating our charming old home.

Bruce Bigalke

Bruce Bigalke | Service Manager

I’ve been connected to vehicles ever since my youth fixing tractors on my parent’s farm. I love to spend my free time at my cabin fishing, hunting, and working on small gas engines.   After my education at St. Cloud State University and Dunwoody Industrial Institute, I became a journeyman mechanic for General Motors and then for United Parcel Service for over 7 years.  Substitute teaching auto mechanics at Dunwoody was also a valuable experience.  I later became a service advisor and then a service manager with Mercedes-Benz dealerships and Porsche of St. Paul for a total of 22 years.  My extensive background has equipped me to better understand how a vehicle operates, to more effectively assist customers with their needs, and to educate and guide my staff to provide exceptional customer service.

Justin Hueg

Justin Hueg | Service Advisor

I started working in the automotive industry in 2001 as a service runner and appointment coordinator. My career with Porsche began in 2003 when I started a car washer and was later promoted to team lead. I served as an inventory control specialist and then became a Porsche service advisor. I remember driving by the Porsche dealership as a child and looking out of the back seat of my parents’ car at the Porsche 911’s on the front display. At that moment a seed had been planted that would grow into a passion for the brand that would continue for the next 20 plus years. It’s only fitting that years down the line, I surround myself with such prestigious vehicles everyday. During my free time I enjoy spending time with my family, watching sports, going to car shows, and attempting to cook.
