Early life

Jean Pierre Krämer grew up in middle class in Dortmund, where he still lives today. After leaving school, he began training as an automotive salesman at Porsche AG and later became sales manager at Porschetuner 9ff. An affinity for the Porsche brand was already evident in early years. In 2007 JP and his then business partner Sidney Hoffmann ventured into self-employment and founded the tuning company “Five Star Performance GmbH” in Dortmund.

Furthermore, the very entertaining and personable JP is also active as an advertising medium for various car manufacturers and other products. At the end of 2017, JP even founded their own racing team for the ADAC GT Masters. Not surprisingly, he chose a Porsche 911 GT3 R as the vehicle.
