Schleissing, owner and founder of
GTS Classics and his family have been
involved with cars since 1920. They
owned a car dealership selling various
makes in Germany. Stefan's grandfather
raced motorcycles and took his daughters
to all the famous races at the Nurburgring
during the time of the famous "Silberpfeile".
After the war not much changed for
this family of car lovers. Stefan's
dad, a rallye driver, joined the family
car dealership and began selling VW's,
Porsches and later Audi's.
Stefan grew up with Porsches and cheering
for the small Stuttgart Auto manufacturer.
After an apprentiship within the Volkswagen,
Audi, and Porsche organization as
a car mechanic and economist, Stefan
also joined the family business selling
Quattro's as they were at their peak
and introducing the Porsche Turbo.
Stefan's personal motor sport career
started by promoting the latest dealership
cars by racing them in orientation
rallies and race slaloms.
He then turned his attention to restoring
,racing and rallying classic cars
starting with a 356, followed by a
914-6, 911, Lotus, Devin, TVR's, Sunbeam
Tigers and Mini Coopers.
He competed in Zolder, in the Monte
Carlo Sestriere, Coppa delle Alpi,
the Tour de France, the Histo Monte,
Baja, La Carrera Classica and also
in the classic version of the Cannonball.
During this time he realized the importance
of having good supportive seats and
the lack of companies making period-correct
ones. Stefan now devotes all his attention
on classic seat models for classic
cars, on the safety and comfort features
needed to keep the classic seats up
to date, the development of new models
and applications. GTS has been providing
