Jake Kaplan got his start in the 1940's with a used tire and no money. He sold it; then sold a few more and eventually picked up a used car. He sold the car and then bought another and thus Jake got his start in the used car business.
In the 1950's Jake raced competitively in Allard's, Alfa Romeo's, Corvette's as well as the Jaguar C-Type, D-Type and XK120 at some of the most famous historical races such as National Hunter, SCCA's Regional Suffolk County, SCCA's National Westover, Watkins Glen Grand Prix and the Nassau Trophy Race.
In the 1960's Jake decided to focus his business on the British and became one the countries first franchised Jaguar dealers opening his showroom on Elmwood Avenue in Providence. Throughout the 60's, 70's and 80's, Jake Kaplan's offered luxurious amenities such as free pick-up and delivery, loaner cars, and complimentary car washes with service. Long before they were considered normal in the industry and allowing us to become one of the country's best Jaguar dealers.
When Land Rover decided to enter the US market in the 1986, Jake Kaplan's was logically appointed as one of 25 original charter dealers in the country.
In the 1990's, Jake was succeeded in the business by his daughter, Sheree who successfully relocated out of the old dealership on Elmwood Avenue in Providence to our current, luxurious new home on Route 2 in Warwick.
In the early 2000's Sheree was rewarded for her superior performance as a Jaguar and Land Rover dealer in Rhode Island by being granted a new point in Norwood, MA.
Land Rover and Jaguar Norwood opened in 2005 and is now one of the largest Land Rover and Jaguar dealers in the country.
Continuing the family tradition, Sheree's son Eddy has entered the business and is currently heading up the pre-owned department for all locations.
Most recently, we've grown again by adding another dealership to the company, Subaru of Milford in Milford, New Hampshire.
