Voted Best Independent Porsche Car Sales Garage by you the public in the 2010, 2013, 2014 & 2015 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.
Whatever stage you’re at in the car buying process we’d love to see you down at Harbour Cars, just drop in.

Delighted with the customer service. Truly an exceptional independent. Recommended!
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 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.
Having purchased many Porsche’s in the past I would say overall the quality of vehicle and service received is as good as any Official Porsche Centre and in my opinion the best independent in the UK. Great Stock, Great cars, fair prices and overall a very good service. Would not hesitate in buying future cars from this dealer
I recently purchased my 997 Turbo from Harbour Cars and throughout the whole purchase process I was dealt with professionally and enthusiastically by the team. Nothing was too much trouble and all my presales queries were answered quickly and efficiently. The car itself was immaculate both cosmetically and mechanically and it later sailed through Porsches 111 point check and a further thorough inspection and geo setup by the guys at Centre Gravity. The aftersales care from the team at Harbour Cars was spot on and a few very minor issues I experienced after purchase were dealt with and resolved speedily and efficiently. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Harbour Cars to anyone looking for a high quality well prepared Porsche and they would certainly be the first place I look if I buy another.
I have purchased two cars from Harbour Cars over the last couple of years, one Porsche Cayenne and one Audi A8. The team are professional yet friendly, always willing to go that extra mile to ensure the customers needs are catered for and their expert knowledge is second to none. I would not hesitate to purchase another car from them and have recommended Harbour Cars to several friends. I definitely went to Harbour Cars as a customer and am now a friend. Fully endorsed and recommended as the number 1 independent dealer in the UK.
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…..!
What can I say about Harbour Cars? Well, I’ve bought two cars from them and will undoubtedly buy a third when the time comes. They are a breath of fresh air with respect to independent dealers – the cars are well prepared before they are advertised for sale, there is no hard sale and, crucially, Rob and Kier stick to their word.
Progress phone calls are always well received, rather than having to chase a dealer about your new purchase, and a very minor niggle was sorted in a painless and efficient manner.
I couldn’t recommend Harbour Cars enough
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.
Just a quick mail to thank you and all your staff, for the smooth purchase of my car.
When I first popped in with no appointment, after seeing the car advertised, I met Kev.
He explained the car wasn’t there at that time, but was so helpful,with a few of my questions.
From the first minute to now i am absolutely delighted with my purchase.
The team you have at Harbour cars are so knowledgeable about the vehicles you are selling,
and a pleasure to do business with.
I must just finish saying, I cannot believe the standard of preparation of the car,it was like a new vehicle (incredible).
Once again many thanks to you and if you could pass on to the rest of the team
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.

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.
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!
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.
Excellent buying experience when purchasing a pre-owned Porsche through Harbour Cars. Nothing was too much trouble for the team in organising things and making sure I had a positive experience. Oliver and Chris were extremely helpful and knowledgeable, and the standards of preparation were excellent. I’d highly recommend them – in a world where car dealers don’t have the greatest reputation, these guys stand out as really putting customer service at the heart of what they do.
