    I am reearching the history of a former Ferrari garage/dealership in Geneva.

    A friend of mine took this photo of VECTOR W8, chassis 001 on March 13, 1993 at a Geneva luxury car garage, 210 Route de Meyrin:

    The garage was located just adjacent to the Southern end of the Geneva airport runway:

    Does anyone know the name of this garage?
    Up to 1992 it used to be a Ferrari garage and dealership.
    In 1993 it appears to have already changed ownership.

    I don't have one to hand but anyone with a pre-93 Ferrari will be able to check it in their Sales & Service Organisation book which lists dealerships worldwide

    I can't help much except of the fact that next to it is a gas station where i often filled up the tank.

    Great find! Thanks so much.

    Do you happen to know the year they closed?
    I would like to find some former staff who may have worked on the VECTOR W8, chassis 001 (see photo above).
    Getting names of former employees or CEO would help a lot.

    So it looks that 1981 the shop started as the Ferrari Geneva HQ, then switching around 1992/1993 into Autodiffusion and some time recently into a shoe shop?

    When you get on bing maps (aerial view) or google maps street view you can see Ghaddafi´s Tamoil gas station.

    I am still trying to find former employees of the above Ferrari and exotics garage at Route Meyrin 210 in Geneva who worked at this place during the early 1990´s (1990- 1993).
    In order to research the history of VECTOR W8, chassis 001 I would like to talk to anyone affiliated with them in those days.

    You can find answers in the Swiss thread where you had also asked for information.
