About Us

Leading European vehicle specialist in Woodbridge, CT.

Specializing In Foreign Vehicles Since 1993

JP Motors LLC was started in a small two bay garage by Joe Portelinha in 1993.

Through hard work and attention to detail Joe quickly outgrew that little shop and made the decision to build a new facility from the ground up in order to meet the demands of his customers.

Our present location is 7000 square feet and contains nine working bays.

We officially opened the doors to the new building in 1999. Ever since we have grown year after year by providing the same level of expertise and value to our customers as in the beginning, we value our customers like family. This is the foundation of our success!

Let’s Talk Equipment and How It Affects YOU

At our core we believe in this business, you need to keep up with the times and technology. This all comes down to bringing value to YOU, our customer.

Here’s a little about the shop and what we can do!

Our building has a lower level for rebuilding engines and transmissions. On top of these features,  JP Motors LLC is taking the proactive and responsible steps to go green to reduce our carbon footprint.

Going Green!

We’ve installed a 10,000 watt solar panel array on our roof to conserve energy. Plus our shop is heated with strictly waste oil fueled equipment. Hot water is provided by an energy efficient on-demand system, yet another step to reduce our use of energy.

We have a five star rating with the Better Business Bureau, Angie’s list and Customer link.

Our technicians, JP (owner) Jerry, “aka scooter” (shop manager) John, Josh, Axle, and Frank take pride in fixing your vehicle correctly, every time. They are also stay familiar with technical service bulletins, recalls and known common issues for each make and model.

Constant training and learning are how we continue to service the newest vehicles on the road.

Our technicians have the tools and equipment they need to do their job well. JP and Scooter make sure they have all the tools and materials needed to find the issue and efficiently fix your vehicle, no matter how complex the issue.

Jp and  Scooter are certified locksmiths. This means they can order theft relevant parts and keys for Mercedes Benz and other makes, don’t want to go to the dealer for these specialized services? YOU DON’T HAVE TO!

JP and his crew have true passion for the automotive business and stay up to date on the latest innovations in the industry to help better serve our customer. 

We strive to ensure our facility has the correct tools and equipment on hand. We understand the need to stay up to date with the ever changing automotive industry. Making sure our technicians have the proper knowledge and tools to excel is just another way we pass value on to you…. our valued customer.
