The Werks Car Club is a new car community set to open in Cornelius, North Carolina in 2023. The car club will provide car enthusiasts with shared car experiences, as well as private car storage, a luxury club house, and concierge services.
The car club was created by David Van Epps, a lifelong car enthusiast and owner of Sonderwerks, a Porsche performance and restoration shop in Cornelius, NC. Mr. Epps recently purchased a 6-acre plot of land near his Sonderwerks restoration shop in order to bring car collectors together to share car experiences.
Mr. Epps Says: “I’d always dreamt of creating this sort of automotive campus, where men and women, similarly bitten by the automotive bug, could come together and share their passion for cars in the same way golfers or boaters do.”
The car club complex includes 89 units ranging in size from approximately 1,200 to 1,600 square feet. The garage condos range in price from $275,000 to $400,000, depending on size and location.
Each garage unit offers an upper mezzanines, large garage doors, bathrooms, plumbing, electricity, and is cable and wifi ready. Owners are free to customize the unit however they see fit.
All members will have access to an on-site clubhouse, which features a covered outdoor patio, meeting rooms, and event space. The clubhouse maintains a calendar of social events, local car club meetings, car meet-ups, sponsored rallies, and destination drives.
Membership in the private club as well as a variety of concierge services are included with ownership. For those who do not wish to purchase a garage, a social membership is also available.
The shared services, which include a private clubhouse, private party rentals, and an outdoor event covered area, are available to everyone in the community.
The first phase, which will include 58 garages and a clubhouse, is expected to be completed in 2023.
The Werks Car Club is located near Cornelius, North Carolina, where you’ll find some of the most expensive real estate in the country as well as a thriving car culture. Cornelius is also home to Lake Norman, one of Charlotte’s most popular attractions.
Lake Norman offers beautiful beaches, boating, fishing, camping, hiking trails, and other activities. The lake is one of the most beautiful man-made lakes in North Carolina, with 520 miles of shoreline. Simply put, you must see Lake Norman if you visit Cornelius, NC.
“There have been some other complexes in the area where developers have sold storage units as condos, there have been none with an exclusive car collector focus, set up as a private club. The Werks will be for motoring enthusiasts exclusively. Our members will store their cars, trucks, RVs, or powersports toys with the assurance that neighboring units will be occupied by like-minded owners”

Taking The Long Road
This project has been in the works (no pun intended) for the last 4 years. As a lifelong car guy and Porsche enthusiast, Dave decided to turn his passion into a business, first purchasing the Chartown Drive property that’s now the home of Sonderwerks, a Porsche service, performance, and restoration shop that services all Porsches, but specializes in classic air-cooled cars. Then, shortly thereafter, he purchased the 6+ acre parcel adjoining to the north. “I’d always dreamt of creating this sort of automotive campus, where men and women, similarly bitten by the automotive bug, could come together and share their passion for cars in the same way golfers or boaters do.”
