Question Good Porsche Mechanics in Metro Atlanta

First post and definitely not my last. I've been in the market for a Boxster for a few months and wanted to inquire if any of you guys can recommend a good honest porsche mechanic in metro atlanta? I know the rule of thumb is 6k/yr for a Porsche but I recently spotted a gorgeous 2001 boxster with 60k miles. Pricing is 23k. I am wanting to take it to mechanic to get it inspected before I negotiate on pricing. Please advise.

German MasterTech has done a great job with the Boxster before I started doing most of the maintenance and repairs. Pretty reasonable prices. http://www.germanmastertech.com/

If you are a member of PCA and get the Peachstate club newsletter, there's a company in Roswell that services P-cars too. I've never used them since I live way north in Cumming.

For the inspection, I'd take it to a dealer (Hennesey in Alpharetta). It costs more, but they will have the most experience with Boxsters since they are a relatively new model. Also, look through the threads asking about what to look for. There are a few common things that you may be able to rule out easily.

If you look at doing any DIY on her let me know. You're welcome to come up and use the air tools (best darn Christmas gift I ever got) and such on weekends and I'll be glad to give you a hand.

Have a wonderful evening!
