About Greff Motors

Ohne geschichte gibt keine zukunft.
Without history, there is no future.

 

Leon J Greff, Jr. 1933-1989

Leon Greff founded Greff Motors in 1963. Located in Metairie, it was the first independent Porsche repair center in the Gulf South. Leon was stationed at Okinawa Air Force Base during the Korean War, where he was crew chief in charge of maintenance and repair of military jets.

In the 1960’s Greff drag raced Porsche powered (906 engine) cars and is a national record holder with NHRA in I-Gas, J-Gas, and F-Gas.

Greff Motors, dba Delta Motors in 1972, was the only Alfa Romeo dealership in New Orleans. The dealership was relinquished in 1976 and Greff Motors became an exclusive Porsche facility in 1980. Greff Motors expanded their service and repair to include Mercedes and BMW.

Leon Greff and his wife Delta were charter members of the Swampland Region Porsche Club.

Leon Greff lost his battle with cancer in Feb 1989.
