Our Vision.

The automotive performance world has changed dramatically over the last 10-20 years.  The days of having a fast car that stays in the garage except for weekends and having a daily driver for the rest of the week is a thing of the past.  At Squires, we believe you can have your cake and eat it too with a serious high horsepower performance car that is daily driven and road-trip worthy.  1000HP and great fuel mileage with all the factory comforts and road manners of a production touring vehicle is well within reach and can be yours with proper planning and a reasonable budget.  You spend enough time in your vehicle, why not enjoy it every minute.

Unlike many shops that dabble in the performance market, Squires only focuses on performance builds and understands that performance work is done at a whole different level than standard automotive repairs.  Squires can help you reach your horsepower and performance goals in a timely and professional manner.  Just check out some of the testimonials of customers that have worked with Squires on their performance projects.
