About Hi-Tec Automotive

Hi Tec Automotive offers factory recommended scheduled maintenance, check engine diagnosis/repair, electrical diagnosis/repair, engine and transmission building, street performance upgrades and head to toe mechanical reconditioning. Our technicians, in addition to being ASE certified, have model specific Porsche and BMW factory training and years of experience with these marks. As European car enthusiasts and owners, we approach each job as if the car was our own.

Owner and founder Deven Wailes is a factory trained Porsche Technician and ASE Master Technician, and has over 45 years of experience with Porsches. He is a true craftsman, and is known for making specialized repairs and in-depth diagnosis. Before the days of Hi 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 since then and takes great pride in every Porsche that he works on.
