Joseph Auto Group dealership heritage dates back to 1938 when the Joseph's were awarded an Oldsmobile franchise from General Motors. The Joseph's purchased the land at the corner of 5th and Sycamore streets in downtown Cincinnati. Back then, Columbia Parkway would lead you down 5th Street and right to the corner of 5th and Sycamore and thus a natural name for the Oldsmobile dealership was Columbia Oldsmobile. For over forty years you could always find a few members of the Joseph family at Columbia Oldsmobile taking care of customers. With such a central location downtown, Columbia was always hopping with service and sales. On any given day, politicians, members of the Reds or Bengals, bankers, business people and friends would stop by to check out the new Cars or just say hello. Columbia began as a very welcoming place, a tradition that still continues today. For many decades Columbia was the largest volume Oldsmobile dealer in the state of Ohio as well as a top dealer nationally. Columbia Oldsmobile remained as a bustling auto dealership hub downtown until 1980.
Fast forward a few decades the Joseph Auto Group was awarded the opportunity to purchase the Porsche and Audi franchise. For a few years during the early 2000's the stores were in a dual dealership and both franchises kept getting bigger and bigger. They decided to build a beautiful new stand alone Porsche dealership in the heart of the Kings Auto Mall to serve all of greater Cincinnati. The Porsche store is a landmark in the Auto Mall and encompasses amazing customer service for all Porsche customers.
