ABOUT FORMULA GARAGE
When Formula Garage’s founder Sri first laid eyes on a McLaren F1 as a teen, it was love at first sight. Even as young kid, he was obsessed with all things performance. His first car purchase was a high-performance four-door saloon, the BMW E60 M5, which he took to the track often. Handling that type of power propelled his interest even further, so naturally he followed his love for German engineering with the best of the them: Porsche.
While he still enjoys the tracks, Sri now spends more time frequenting manufacturers, factories, and automotive museums to gain knowledge as a collector and developer. Visit after visit, he has gained significant experience with all things Porsche. He wanted to find a creative way to share his love for the Porsche brand, so Sri made it his lifelong mission to cultivate an experience that combines both his passion for automotive and education, which ultimately lead to the creation of Formula Garage.
Unimpressed and uninspired by typical car storage facilities, Sri decided to build something different—a place where everyone could learn about supercars, racing fundamentals, and automotive art and history. After an extensive search, he finally found a venue and established Formula Garage. The property underwent extensive renovations for two years before it opened to the public in 2019. Now, as guests walk through the hallways and Museum spaces, they receive a mini vacation to Houston’s own Petersen Museum, decked with memorabilia dedicated to Porsche among other manufacturers.
The goal of founding Formula Garage was to create an immersive automotive experience and bring the car culture to everyone, both private and public. Whether you’re a gearhead or just an art lover, Formula Garage makes automotive education accessible so that anyone can learn about these engineering marvels, while also enjoying them as art in a social atmosphere. Simply put, Sri wanted to combine the best luxury experience all rolled into one, convenient package for everyone to enjoy.
Plans for Phase II are already underway and set to open to the public in Summer 2022. The venue will include luxury car storage that also functions as an art gallery and a multipurpose event space. That means you can make a quick trip to our location, pull your car out of storage, and take it for a spin any time. Or, you can leave it safely displayed in the good company of Sri’s own fine Porsche collection whilst a company party or anniversary event is being hosted. When the full vision of Formula Garage is finally complete, it will truly be unprecedented feat: an Automotive Haven.
