In 2011 after a two day Porsche Driving School event that changed his life forever, Matt Muller set out on a course that ultimately lead to the formation of Aspen Autosports. In 2012, Matt met Bob and Jake who had been in the Porsche Track world for a collective 30 years at that point. Over the next few years as Bob, Jake and Matt talked cars, track and going fast the idea of Aspen began to form. January of 2016 the idea was solidified – Create a new Porsche focused, track oriented shop focused on the needs of the customer by offering a feature rich set or services to provide the customer with everything that they need to enjoy their on track experience better than any other shop can. Frustrated at the some of the traditional service we found at other locations, our commitment to the customer is to be transparent in pricing, to find the right solutions for your needs and build a community for the long term of ‘friends’. Our commitment to you is we will work with you to find ways for you to go faster on track. Period.
Meet The Team
Matt was taken with Porsche’s from the age of 5, when his father’s friend showed him his Ivory White 356 with a red interior and it changed his life from that point forward. After migrating from Australia to the US in 1999 Matt was able to finally realize a lifelong dream of owning a Porsche. That car was a 2002 Boxster S and the journey had begun. It started with some autocross in the early years and after another 10 years focused on a career, Matt retired from the corporate world and started down the track life path.
In the next 18 months, Matt started driving on track in the Green run group, bought a second track car which was a real race car, started instructing, won his first race and set his first lap record. 5 years later, Matt owned two 997 GT3RS’s, two 996 GT3’s, two Boxster race car’s and a Cayenne GTS. Matt is a PCA National instructor and PCA Club Racer, with track records and wins at tracks from Sebring, Florida to Watkins Glen, NY.
