There’s a lot to be said about history

The Dimmitt family history is a rich one, built on vision, perseverance, and most of all, legacy.

From small beginnings, we’ve built generations of loyal customers and employees throughout the central gulf coast that have helped us get where we are today. The late Larry Dimmitt, Sr. started it all in Savannah, Georgia in the 1900’s when he joined the automobile business.


As Clearwater expanded, the Dimmitt organization also grew. In 1952, Larry Dimmitt, Jr. took over the operations from his father. An additional dealership was added in 1965. Keeping with tradition, Richard Roth Dimmitt purchased the franchise from his father, entering the 3rd generation of dealerships.

The family acquired another dealership in 1985. Originally located in Inverness, the county seat of Citrus County, Florida, the dealership relocated to an all new facility in Homosassa a few years later. In 1986, the original dealership was relocated to its current site in Countryside. The Range Rover brand joined the dealership in 1987 as the exclusive Florida West Coast franchise, and one of only 25 charter retailers nationwide for our brand.


Luxury and elegance are synonymous with the Dimmitt name. Four ultra luxury stores were added between 1997 and 2017. Realizing the importance of being able to offer top-notch services on every scale, the company added a newly built, state-of-the-art collision center in 2018. Jaguar joined the Clearwater campus in late 2018. Cycle Springs Powersports was added in 2023 as the Group’s newest location in Clearwater.


Legacy and history are ingrained into the Dimmitt name, and Richard Dimmitt has proudly represented the family with an area network of dealerships spanning from Crystal River in the north, to St. Petersburg in the south. He has won numerous “Master Dealer” awards for his locations, in addition to other accolades and awards. As one of the few original Clearwater families, Mr. Dimmitt works with the local community in all his efforts.

Holding fast to tradition runs in the family. Richard’s two sons are now continuing the 4th generation legacy to ensure the Dimmitt name carries on, and the company continues to make a tremendous difference.
