Who We Are:
In 2018 Godspeed Motors celebrated our 10 year anniversary! We are a family owned and operated business that came from humble beginnings (see “Our Beginning” below). At Godspeed Motors you will find a very unique car buying experience. We operate out of our new 33,000 square foot warehouse where every car is kept inside to ensure it is kept in it’s best condition. Our goal is to provide you with a vehicle of extremely high quality at a great price and an easy, laid-back purchasing experience. Our goal is to not pressure you into anything, but to happily offer our advice and strive to meet your needs. We believe it is very important to treat our employees and our customers the way they would want to be treated. We operate on the principles of honesty and integrity in all we do. Our customers come from across the region and the country to shop with us. Whether you live nearby, or across the U.S., we can ship to you! We welcome you to Godspeed Motors and look forward to assisting you in your car buying needs.
While we sell cars of all calibers, we often specialize in cars that are unique, hard to find, and highly sought after. We specialize in European models from Audi, BMW, Jaguar, Land Rover, Mercedes-Benz, and Porsche. Every car that is sold from Godspeed Motors is backed by a combination of over 100 years of experience in the car industry. We have high expectations for every car we buy and sell. Our passion for quality is what ensures every buyer that he is getting what he pays for. We have sold thousands of cars and are very intentional about doing things the “right” way. We service our cars with integrity and feel very confident that Godspeed Motors has some of the nicest, well maintained, high quality cars out there. Every car gets a 120+ point inspection, an average of 10 hours of service, approximately $1,000 in repairs, and an average of 8 hours spent on detailing and reconditioning.
We offer great financing at extremely competitive rates and can work with many levels of credit. We work with many different banks and credit unions to ensure you have the best options available. We also offer extended warranties, gap insurance and additional products to meet your needs.
We recently relocated to our new location at 11881 Vance Davis Dr Charlotte NC 28269. This building was purchased from BAM Foyt Racing and was previously used as a race shop for a 2 car Nascar team. We are currently remodeling our new 33,000 square foot facility with 3.5 acres. Our new location is located on the north side of Charlotte in the Twin Lakes business park alongside companies such as; Michelin Tires, Ingersoll Rand, and Wells Fargo. We are located directly off exit 23-C on 485 and we are less than 1 mile from I-77. When renovations are completed, it will include a full mechanic workshop, a body shop, a detail shop, a 4,000 square foot showroom, customer lounge, office space and over 20,000 square foot space for indoor car sales display. The 3,000 square foot heated/cooled mechanic shop includes all top of the line equipment, including; 5 Rotary lifts, a Hunter Revolution tire changer and road force balancer, state inspection machine, 20-ton press, engine and transmission stands and jacks, parts washer, brake lathe, Robin Air AC machine, and over $30,000 in diagnostic equipment. The body shop includes top of the line, German made, grade level down draft paint booth with a finishing bake cycle, a prep area with dust particle extraction system, and a PPG paint mixing station. Our detail shop consists of 2,400 total square feet, with a 3000-psi electric hot water pressure washer with in-ground oil/water separator, high temperature carpet cleaning extractors, and a steam cleaner. We are hoping to have all the renovations completed middle to late summer of 2018.

Matt Nietupski is 100% owner of Godspeed Motors, but a steward of everything God has given him. From a very young age, he was very passionate about cars. His free time in his younger years, was mostly spent wrenching on his different project race cars (including a 450hp turbo awd Eagle Talon, many M3’s, supercharged 800hp ZO6 corvette, and 1000hp 2JZGTE E-36 M3). He has been involved in drag racing, drifting, and road racing. He began working at a highline dealership straight out of high school as a lot boy/errand runner. Over a 7 year period, he worked his way up through the positions, including service, detail, sales and finally to general manager. Matt Nietupski started Godspeed Motors in March of 2008 when he was 24 years old, just before the economy crashed, with a total life savings of $30,000. The business began in Fort Mill SC, in a small 3,000 square foot warehouse with a 100 square foot office. The first several years were very trying and he came close to going out of business multiple times. Back then, Matt did most of the vehicle repairs and detailing himself. About 2 years into business, Matt brought his wife Amber of 3 years, on board. They shared a desk in the small 100 square foot office. As any married couple would understand, this was definitely not ideal working conditions! By the grace of God, their business grew and by the 4th year they expanded to a 12,000 square foot warehouse in Charlotte, NC. Matt and Amber’s family also grew, as they added their first child, Abby. Abby came to work most days, where she had her own nursery/play room. Over the next several years, they were able to add 6 employees and bring service and detailing of the vehicles in house. They also added two more children to their family, Eli and Libby. At the beginning of 2018, they purchased a 33,000 square foot facility. To God be the glory, great things He has done!
Jasmine Walker2 weeks agoWow ! That is truly the word to use to sum up my experience! This is by far the best car buying experience that I have had. My salesman Tony was personable and made my purchase extremely easy from start to finish. He connected with me and listened it was more to him then just a sale. He truly wanted me to be happy with my purchase! Screw Covid I gave him one huge hug once my experience was complete. I will never go anywhere else when looking for my next vehicle! Godspeed Auto is my dealer and Tony is my salesman! Bottom line! If your looking for an honest place to shop here it is look no further! And ask for Tony you will not be disappointed he makes you feel like your shopping with family ! You can certainly trust he is acting in your best interest! ??
Emma Beam2 weeks agoThis was truly an amazing experience! I am a first time buyer and Godspeed was 100% the place for me. With outstanding help from Ash he made this process so much easier! Being a first time buyer can be nerve-racking but he helped me step by step through the process. Making sure I understood everything before moving on to the next step!! I would recommend making your first purchase or any purchase through Godspeed!
Andrew1 month agoYuri is the best! He went above and beyond to help me and my girl and we can’t thank him enough for his kindness and professionalism ! We got the car we wanted for the lowest price in the market! No hassle and stress free! I will definitely recommend him and Godspeed.
Robert Guerieri1 month agoHad a really great experience buying a car at Godspeed Motors. We were looking for a specific car in a specific color and trim (needle in. haystack). Godspeed had the car. They do work using a fixed price model, so there was no back and forth haggling. The price was fair considering the other cars on the market; it was not a screaming deal. We decided to go forward with buying the car and worked with Yuri throughout the sales process. He was polite, congenial, and very forthright with all of the information on the car. He was very responsive when we called, left messages, and texted him. We live across country, so it took some coordinating to see the car. Yuri stayed late one day so that we could see the car when we got there, and then we did all of the paperwork the next day. Yuri even told us and showed us there was another appointment for the car, that he had to cancel because we bought it. It is definitely refreshing to find a salesmen that is upfront and honest, no guessing or game playing. Also, Rob in finance was great to work with and talk to. He is a straight shooter, very organized with the paperwork, and has the process down pat. Although it was across the country, it was well worth the trip to buy a car at Godspeed. We would do business with them in the future if/when we are in the market for another vehicle.
Matthew Maddalone2 months agoBest car buying experience hands down! I for one hate buying cars so I put it off and off. Walked in and had a quick conversion with a sales manager and then I was left alone to check out a nice selection of luxury cars all in beautiful condition and detailed with perfection. I was able to take my time and never bothered again by a salesman. Found the car I loved and walked out of the door in under an hour with the keys to my new Mercedes! I will definitely be back with the family next time to buy our family ride.
Josh W3 months agoThis place is like a candy store! The most beautiful selection of cars I’ve seen. Yuri was great and made our experience even better! I wish I had found you guys before! Thanks again!
Kim Lane3 months agoGodspeed Motors is any car lover’s dream. They have a large selection of high-end and hard to find vehicles. The buying experience is one of a kind; all of the vehicles are kept inside, so it is so much easier to look around. JaJa Mallory helped me find exactly what I wanted and was able to get me a great deal. From beginning to end, everyone was super chill and never pressured me. I won’t go anywhere else for my vehicle purchases after experiencing Godspeed Motors!
Maria Cole3 months agoIf you are looking for a great looking luxury vehicle this is the place to go. My and I found a vehicle online and called them to set up an appointment the next day. Our sales person Yuri was great. He gave us all the information we needed about the car. Very professional and helpful. We always felt like we were kept in the loop. My wife loves her new car. I highly recommend you check this place out. Thanks to everyone at Godspeed Auto. Stewart and Maria Cole
Marvin Glockner3 months agoThis is my first luxury car and I am very enthusiastic about it. Your communication during the course of my purchase was excellent as well as your explanation of the process & procedure. The car was as advertised; pristine and clean. I am exceedingly happy with my purchase and the service provided by Godspeed Motors. I will definitely visit your website prior to my next purchase or contact you directly. Thanks again for everything.
Puru Garg5 months agoI visited the showroom with my friend and we had a great experience with the salesman named Yuri. He is an excellent person and explained each and everything in detail. We were very impressed and satisfied and finally we bought the car we were looking for. So if anyone is interested in buying a nice car from the showroom please look for Yuri. Thank you ??
