Excelerate Performance is owned by Joshua Lockwood. For over two decades his hobby has been automotive related and more specifically modifying cars, but it’s in his blood too as his father loved fast cars. Once he got a taste for performance the button was switched and he began modifying his first vehicle heavily. After that he began advising, selling and installing performance parts for friends and family. With this love of vehicles and love for business the decision to go into business for himself was obvious. Joshua completed his Bachelor of Science in Business Management from Quinnipiac University in 2003 and never looked back. Armed with entrepreneurial knowledge, an insatiable desire for the performance market, and some hard earned funds, he began Excelerate Performance.
Although Excelerate Performance is an integral part of Josh’s life, it isn’t all business all the time. When he’s not at work, he’s spending his time with his beautiful wife, Sarah. She has been with him as long as his passion for cars has been. Together they enjoy good food, good friends, and time with their family, along with their puggles. They also help others in the community and are devoted to their religion.
And obviously Josh loves cars and he likes powerful cars. Josh’s garage has included an entire gamut of vehicles: VW, Audi, Acura, Honda, Toyota, Mazda, etc. But currently it’s filled with an Audi RS7, Audi R8, several 500+ hp VW GTi’s, Acura RDX, and a Toyota Tundra 5.7. More are coming.
