  • Eric Lee
    New Car Sales Manager
    (425) 452-3200

    Eric brings over 26 years of Porsche Passion to Porsche Bellevue. He concentrates on providing the Porsche Experience and guiding every customer on their Porsche journey. His first Porsche fascination came when he heard the unique sound of a new Porsche 911 driving away from his high school graduation.

    His fascination and passion finally came together in 1990 at Bellevue Porsche. The dealership was later acquired by Jimmy Barrier and became Barrier Porsche. In the beginning, Barrier Porsche was not big enough to have a standalone store, so Eric was also involved as a Sales manager for the Audi, Jaguar, Lotus, Bentley, Rolls Royce, and Lamborghini franchises in addition to Porsche. These experiences helped shape Eric's customer service skills as Porsche expanded into its own facility. Eric was finally allowed to focus just on Porsche. When Eric is not driving the sales department, he keeps busy with his wife and son and two Chihuahua's, Moto and Paco.
