About

Our Mission

Our mission is to make exotic car ownership an all-around pleasurable experience. Our focus is to give “quality vs. quantity” service. We want to make sure your experience is unlike any dealership service department. Not only do we want to fix your vehicle, we want you to have fun with your vehicle. The exclusive VEX Driving Club hosts dinners, drives, and other events to get to know your mechanic as well as bring local exotic car owners together. We want our clients to be part of our VEX family.

Vincent Carollo (Vinnie)

Owner / Porsche Certified Master Technician

Vinnie began his interest in auto-mechanics in the late 90s, working on vehicles for his family and friends. At his father’s advice, he enrolled at Universal Technical Institute in Mooresville, NC in 2005, with plans in mind of becoming a Porsche technician. While in training, he worked for a Mazda/Suzuki dealership service department, gaining his first experience with dealership service life. After graduating, he returned to begin a new career at the Porsche dealership in Baton Rouge, LA, where he worked and trained, becoming a Porsche Certified Master Mechanic. Here is where he met most of his clients who are still with him today. After seven years of loyal service, he left this dealership to further his career at a Porsche dealership in New Orleans, LA. 

It had always been a dream of his to own his own shop and be in business for himself. After much advice and encouragement from his best clients and friends, in 2012, he began VEX as a promotional company to bring together his exotic clientele base for exclusive dinners and drives, as well as co-sponsoring local car shows. In October of 2014, Vinnie was able to open a single bay in a good friend’s shop. He worked there part-time until making the tough decision to leave the dealer world for good and go all in for himself. In January of 2015, Vinnie’s Exotics was open full-time and full-service.

As you can see, we have set in place all the pieces to have a high-level automotive shop working on high-end and exotic vehicles that has not been seen in our area. Friendly faces and knowledgeable staff are not just buzzwords, they are actualities. What we do is not just a job; it’s our lifestyle and our calling. We welcome you to stop by, experience our newest 14,000 sq ft facility, and meet our staff. We are a small shop doing big things for our local car market. We hope to earn your business as well.
