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. Every car comes with a 30-day 3,000 mile powertrain warranty.
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!
