  • John Bettencourt,
    (207) 883-5568 EXT 1040

    Sales & Leasing Consultant

    John has been interested in cars for as long as he can remember. He is always trying to learn as much as he can about all the latest and greatest cars out there. 
    Volvo has played a significant part in his family, his grandfather was getting PV544's in the late 50's, his grandmother is on her second Volvo, his mother is on her third and John himself is on his third !! 
    He loves working here at Portland Volvo because he gets to be around a brand he loves and gets to show others how to love the brand like he does.
    If he had to pick his favorite car ever, it would be a nearly impossible question to answer without breaking it up into categories. For American it would have to be the Iconic 1970 Plymouth Barracuda in Plum crazy Purple with a 426 Hemi under the hood, for European it would have to be a Ford Escort RS Cosworth (A car that sadly never came stateside) and for Asian he would go with a R32 Nissan Skyline GT-R Vspec II. 
    When not at work he usually is hanging out with friends, wrenching on his car, making tons of food or binge watching the latest Netflix series.
