Voted Best Independent Porsche Car Sales Garage by you the public in the 2010, 2013, 2014, 2015 & 2016 Porsche Awards
Harbour Cars is an independent specialist supplying the finest used Porsches and Mercedes-Benz. We stock around 20 approved cars at all times but should we not have the particular car that you are looking for in stock, we will do our best to seek one out for you.
Good question. We strongly believe that a well prepared used Porsche or Mercedes-Benz is often better value than a lesser new car of the same ticket price. We also know that providing customers with the complete package in terms of preparation standards and after sales service is what really matters in our market and it’s not just about being the cheapest.
As a family business and a close-knit team of professionals, we believe in delivering true customer satisfaction. Buying a car should be a hassle-free experience and through our excellent advisory service and industry expertise, Harbour Cars makes this possible.

Absolutely superb service from Chris who made my first-ever Porsche purchase a real pleasure. Every aspect of the car was explained and good advice on after-care and ownership given. Their cars are stunning and immaculate. Can’t recommend Harbour Cars enough if you are looking for a pristine pre-owned Porsche.
My journey and relationship with Harbour cars began before i actually purchased my first Porsche, as with many, i had a few questions and never ever did they make me feel like i was wasting their time, Chris and the team there always helped me through the thought process and we ended up purchasing a 997 generation 2 C2s PDK, there were many ‘like’ cars on the market, but because they made me feel like a customer long before i spent any money, I knew they would look after me. the hand-over process was brilliant and Chris spent a lot of time ensuring all of our questions were answered and that we were completely comfortable before driving off.
If you want a non pressured sales environment with a team that are truly passionate about the quality of their cars and relationship with their customers, i strongly recommend Harbour Cars.
I purchased my first Porsche from Harbour Cars earlier this year and the car is just great. The service from Harbour Cars in general – and Gary in particular – was also every bit as good as one would expect from a main dealer. Rather than being ‘Sold to’, the dealership’s consultative approach see the team genuinely try to understand your needs. I would certainly advise anyone looking for a Porsche to have a chat with the team at Harbour Cars. Thanks again Gary!
I just bought my first Porsche from Chris at Harbour, an exceptional buying experience from negotiation to handover. These guys really know their stuff and their enthusiasm is deeply infectious. They are far better than any main dealer I have ever dealt with, the service is very personal and tailored for you. The car I bought was beautifully prepared and I enjoy every second driving it. Thanks Chris, see you in a year or so for my next Porsche…..!
As with many, owning a Porsche 911 is turning a dream into reality. The reality was scary for me. I was spending my hard saved money on a second hand car out of manufacturer warranty. This is a daunting move. But with Harbour Cars this concern was eliminated. My car came with a very thorough independent inspection and a very comprehensive AA Gold Warranty. Not only this but the staff at Harbour Cars also understood and empathised with my concerns and spent many hours explaining how to live with a Porsche 911, the different models and which one would best suit my lifestyle. There was no sense of being treated in a transactional way. After purchasing my Porsche Harbour Cars have called numerous times to ensure all is well – an extremely assuring and highly recommended way of buying our Porsche.
Recently purchased Porsche from Harbour Cars. If you want a perfect car and perfect customer service, look no further.
Chris was superb from the 1st contact to post-sale, I couldnt recommend more highly ..
Where to start? I remember well purchasing my first Porsche. It was an exciting yet daunting proposition. As I was only young (and never in a suit) I’d had some interesting/rude receptions when looking at my first few cars elsewhere. I then visited Harbour Cars, where, both Rob & Kier welcomed me. They were polite, friendly, and most importantly of all, knowledgeable. They happily discussed many aspects of Porsche with me and gave me sound advice, they were willing to help whether I bought from them or not and came across as true enthusiasts that had nothing but time for me. The premises and presentation of cars were also excellent. This was all very reassuring and was, in my experience of buying cars (at the time and to this day), customer service second to none. They consequently sourced me a fantastic 996 with the spec I desired at the right money. The car was superbly prepped and their after-sales service was spot on. Although no longer a Porsche owner, I still visit now and again to say hi, have a friendly catch up and seek advice with many things car related; they are always my first port of call regardless of the marque I’m after.
I recently bought a 911 Turbo from Harbour Cars. From the first telephone enquiry, all the way through to chatting over how the car is performing, the team are fantastic. They take real pride in what they are selling – I highly recommend them to anyone looking to buy a Porsche.
I bought and eventually sold my 997 Carrera 2S with Harbour Cars after much research into the various models and dealers. Being a very thorough and particular purchaser when it comes to cars, there aren’t actually that many dealers that I would buy from! Harbour Cars however, were clearly hugely well informed in their chosen product range with a very high standard of stock and, importantly for me, not at all pushy. I always felt that their business model relied more on gaining and looking after a long-term customer who would potentially buy and sell multiple cars in the future than gaining a ‘quick hit’ now to shift a particular car. Competitive on price but not always the cheapest (the cheapest is not always the best option in this line of purchase!), this is a professional company where the polite and objective team helps to make buying this type of car the pleasure it should be. I would not hesitate to purchase from them again and probably will do when the time is right.

I purchased my first Porsche 911 ftom Harbour Cars in April 09. Their relaxed, professional and candid advice was a welcome departure on previous arrogant and pushy salesmen in the more mainstream dealerships. The car was delivered in pristie condition and, since then, the after sales service has been commenddable. Harbour Cars is a professional and trustworthy dealership that I fully recommend.

This is our first experience of Harbour Cars. We have been Porsche enthusiasts for a number of years and have dealt with several independent garages. We found the experience of dealing with yourself and other staff at Harbour cars a real pleasure. You provide a very professional service and made the whole experience very enjoyable. Most importantly of all we are delighted with the car and would not hesitate in recommending Harbour cars to any of our friends and other prospective Porsche owners.
Many thanks Chris!

I have been a customer of Harbour Cars for eight years and during that time I have traded several Porsches and Mercedes through the Dealership. All their cars at point of purchase are not only immaculately prepared, both mechanically and body wise, but they also come with a full parts and labour warranty. The depth of knowledge possessed by the staff in relation to their cars is truly staggering and the friendly team will assist with any query whatsoever, including finding a car to match a customer’s individual preference where required. In addition, anybody who has witnessed the forensic examination they subject a trade in car to, where even the most insignificant faults are spotted and rectified before sale, will know that this is a garage where one can purchase any car with the maximum of confidence. I rate them as one of the finest Porsche independent dealers in the country and will willingly chat to any prospective client needing further reassurance.
I have bought 2 997’s from Harbour cars and cannot recommend them highly enough. Everyone is professional, knowledgeable and passionate about the cars they sell. It’s rare to find a company that are still focused on customer service long after they have sold you a car. The first car I bought suffered some issues soon after I collected it, these were dealt with swiftly and without question. They were the first and only call I made when upgrading the car………….coffee’s nice too!
Purchased a Porsche 911 GT3 from Harbour cars and couldn’t be happier. Having spent considerable time speaking to various well regarded specialist dealers and researching the model I viewed three GT3’s for sale, one of which was at Harbour Cars.
Prior to travelling from London for a viewing and test drive Gary was able to provide a lot of detail on the car over the phone. The service before and after purchase was excellent and not at all pushy on sales. Gary spent a lot of time showing me the car and the test drive was extensive, all up spending over 2.5hrs going through all the necessary details.
The after sales service has been excellent and Gary has followed up on my purchase with a couple of phone calls to see how I was getting on with the car.
I had received positive comments from other Porsche specialists about Harbour Cars and can attest they are knowledgable, relaxed and very easy to deal with. I would happily recommend Gary and Harbour Cars to any prospective purchaser.
After a great deal of research on the Porsche marque, I found myself travelling to Chichester to see what ended up being the purchase of my first Porsche. I met Gary with whom I had spoken to on the phone the previous day. His approach to the whole experience and to my actual buying of the car was excellent. It was the best I have ever had at any dealership with previous car purchases. It was just a lovely calm, family type atmosphere which made you feel so relaxed.
The range of cars on offer was so impressive and the care and attention to the preparation and presentation of all the models was exemplary.
The After Sales Service too has been brilliant and Gary has followed up on my purchase with a couple of phone calls to see how I was getting on with the car.
I would not hesitate to recommend Harbour Cars to any prospective purchaser and I certainly know where I will be heading for my next Porsche purchase.
