About Hi Tec Automotive

Established in San Rafael 30 years ago, Hi Tec Automotive is the premier independent Porsche & Audi facility in Marin County -specializing in the service, repair, reconditioning, and restoration of these fine German vehicles, both new and vintage.

Hi Tec offers factory recommended scheduled maintenance, check engine diagnosis/repair, electrical diagnosis/repair, engine and transmission building, and head to toe mechanical reconditioning (with emphasis on originality). Our technicians, in addition to being ASE certified, have model specific Porsche, Audi and Mini training, and years of experience. They are all European car enthusiasts, and approach each job as if the car was their own.

Owner/Founder Deven Wailes is a factory trained Porsche Technician and ASE Master Technician, and has over 30 years of experience with Porsches and Audis.  He is a true craftsman, and is known for making specialized repairs and in-depth diagnosis.  Before the days of Hit Tec, Deven owned a small shop in Colorado, and then moved back to California where he worked at Felton Porsche, first as a mechanic and then as shop foreman.  When Felton Porsche closed in 1985, he opened his own establishment here in Marin County, Hi Tec Automotive. Deven is a German car enthusiast to the core; his first car at age 16 was 1966 Porsche 911, with more rust than steel.  He has owned over 25 Porsches, many Audis, and now has an Audi Allroad and Porsche 911 twin turbo.
