About Hi-Tec Automotive

Hi Tec Automotive offers factory recommended scheduled maintenance, check engine diagnosis/repair, electrical diagnosis/repair, engine and transmission building, and head to toe mechanical reconditioning (with emphasis on originality). Our technicians, in addition to being ASE certified, have model specific Porsche factory training and over 35 years of Audi service and experience. They are all European car enthusiasts, and approach each job as if the car was their own.

Owner and founder Deven Wailes is a factory trained Porsche Technician and ASE Master Technician, and has over 40 years of experience with Porsches and Audis.  He is a true craftsman, and is known for making specialized repairs and in-depth diagnosis.  Before the days of Hit Tec, Deven owned a small shop in Colorado, and then moved back to California where he worked at Felton Porsche, first as a mechanic and then as shop foreman.  When Felton Porsche closed in 1985, he opened his own establishment here in Marin County, Hi Tec Automotive. Deven is a German car enthusiast to the core; his first car at age 16 was 1966 Porsche 911, with more rust than steel.  He has owned over 25 Porsches, many Audis, and now has an Audi Allroad and Porsche 911 twin turbo.
