ABOUT F8 SPORTSCARS

F8 SportsCars (Previously F1 Motorsports) is an automotive service company built on a high level of love and respect for high end, exotic, rare and bespoke automobiles.

As a company, F8 is a symbol of nearly 20 years of experience in the field of automotive repair and maintenance. It’s a symbol of the last 10+ years of full dedication to the brands we specialize in like Ferrari, Lamborghini, Aston Martin, Porsche, Rolls Royce... Even Panoz, Beck and Delorean... They deserve love too. F8 is always a symbol of doing it right, and charging only what’s necessary. It’s about respect, honor and integrity. Most of all though, F8 SportsCars is a symbol of the passion, understanding and view of these cars that reminds us all that they aren’t just metal, plastic and leather. They are pieces of art, unfortunately sometimes stationary, sometimes art only in motion, examples of stature, prestige, or just an example of somebody’s personal taste. Either way, if you love it, we love it and that’s why F8 SportsCars exists.


We have a very strict compliance to manufacturer procedures and our "customer AND car are #1" view of client service is why F8 SportsCars is the go to place for anybody that expects their car to be respected as much as they do.

JEREMY KAMINSKI

OWNER/HEAD TECHNICIAN

"I knew I was going to be an automotive technician as long as I can remember, I’ve always loved everything about cars. When most kids had pictures of their girlfriends in their wallets and lockers, I had supercars and always had a dream to be able to be around them every day.

I’ve been working on cars professionally for more than 20 years and have had hundreds of hours of training from many of the leading manufacturers in the automotive industry. I have progressed greatly over the years but I started out as any mechanic does, as a kid changing tires and oil.

 

Working on cars and running F8 isn’t about just having a job for me, it’s about being able to do what I love every single day in a way that allows me to share that personal experience and passion with my clients. F8 is a physical representation of who I am and how I expect high end automotive service to be. I see every day as an opportunity to be better as a technician.

On the rare occasion I’m not at the shop, I’m relaxing or if the car-gods allow it, at a racetrack somewhere getting some much needed seat time."

Thought Provoking Question Of The Month
What's your favorite new car under $40k and your favorite new car Over $150K?

"My favorite cars seem to change often. Right now I have to say that a new car under $40k has to be the 2022/2023 BMW 2 Series. At $40K there isn't really many decent options but for the performance, fuel economy and overall class I don't think you can go wrong with a small peppy BMW. Over $150k isn't really an easier decision, there are too many options but if I were forced to pick, I'd go with the Ferrari 812 GTS. $360,000 get's you a lot including an 800 horsepower V12 which is likely one of the last Ferrari will ever build."

Justin Wylin

Technician

"I first got into cars because of my Grandfather. I always had an interest in cars, and my Grandpa saw it and invited me to go to his weekly car show when I was in fourth grade. Since then, I became so much more fascinated with cars, and I always thought it would be sweet to make them faster and fix them. I started working at a Ford dealer and then to another one, finally being blessed with the opportunity to work for F8 Sportscars. I own a Ford Mustang that I like to build and drive/race in my free time."

Thought Provoking Question Of The Month
What's your favorite new car under $40k and your favorite new car Over $150K?

"My favorite car under $40k is probably a Ford Focus RS. Unfortunately they stopped making those here in 2018, they still are pretty dominant. They have the right amount of rally and street racing potential so that they are fun on both dirt and pavement. Over $150k will have to go to the Shelby GT500 Super Snake Roadster. With 825 horsepower and a 10 speed automatic, you cant go wrong (unless it was a manual of course) With that kind of horsepower and still having an open top so you can really hear the supercharged 5.0 under the hood, i dont see much of a better to go around the track."

"Hey! I'm Gabriel, I've been working with F8 for a little over 2 years. I knew this was the place for me so I weaseled my way in :3 I've loved cars ever since i was like 3 so its pretty cool hanging out around Ferraris and stuff all day. My hobbies are going to the arcade and hanging out with my friends. A future goal of mine would be to learn how to wrap cars."

Thought Provoking Question Of The Month
What's your favorite new car under $40k and your favorite new car Over $150K?

"Favorite car under $40K is the FD2 Honda Civic Type R. No one does FWD better than Honda, so a Type R is your best bet. The FD2 generation was the last naturally aspirated Type R, using the legendary K20A 2.0l 4 cylinder. This engines tuning capabilities are insane and the car handles so damn well, love it.

The Nissan GT-R SpecV is my favorite over $150K. There are so many reasons to love the R35 GTR, but it has one small issue, she's heavy. so the SpecV replaced some parts with carbon fiber and just straight removed other unnecessary parts. It came on unique wheels developed by RAYS. plus it came in a super pretty "Ultimate Opal Black" which really suits the car."
