Need a Porsche towing company in North Metro Atlanta.

Anybody know of a place in North Metro Atlanta who can tow a Porsche? When I called AAA they don't have anyone who can tow by flatbed with the "webs" that hold the wheels down rather than holding the car down by the suspension.

If I can't find anyone, are there any good places to connect the tie downs?

I'll be calling around in the morning, but if anyone knows of a place before then it would be wonderful.

TIA!

The wife was shopping and was ready to come home, but the Box wanted to rest. It starts and runs rough for a minute then everything smooths out, but when you hit the gas it won't go, just sits there at 1k rpm. There are no codes so it's hard to tell what the problem might be, but I'm guessing a vacuum leak for starters. I just need to get her home so I can figure it out.

I would bet one of the dealers would know a flatbed company or call Porsche Roadside Assistance - since they contract with flatbeds for towing, they could recommend someone close to your area. Good luck
