About Euro Autowerks

Serving Grand Rapids and West Michigan Since 1984


Tim Thatcher, Owner

From a routine oil change to a rebuild or restoration, we take pride in our sterling reputation for making happy clients. Founded by Tim Thatcher, Euro Autowerks began as an independent Porsche specialist located in Kentwood, Michigan. An avowed Porsche enthusiast, Tim owned a 356 by the time he was 18 years old. Tim apprenticed and worked at various local import dealerships before launching Euro Autowerks in 1984, committed to providing quality service at a reasonable price.

Soon after the shop opened there began a growing demand for Euro Autowerks to service additional brands. With the same level of care and attention to detail afforded to Porsches, Tim and his team began providing similar services to the owners of other marques such as BMW, Mercedes, Volkswagen, and Audi. Eventually there came other import brands, such as Lotus, Alfa Romeo, Toyota, Saab, Acura, Ferrari, Nissan, Jaguar, Lexus, Volvo, and others.

In 2000 Euro Autowerks moved to its current location, just north of Grand Rapids and just west of the Grattan Raceway. Tim is ASE master certified and a PCA member. Stop by and see us.
