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.
Whatever stage you’re at in the car buying process we’d love to see you down at Harbour Cars, just drop in.

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
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.
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 ..
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.
Delighted with the customer service. Truly an exceptional independent. Recommended!
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…..!
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
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.
Having owned a couple of 911’s over the years this was undoubtably the best specialist Porsche dealer experience i have had. Extremely well presented and documented stock and Gary was superb at guiding me through the decision with skill , knowledge and humour. I’m delighted with my purchase and i would not hesitate to recommend Harbour Cars to you if you want quality, fairness and world class customer support.
Its not about how a company deals with the ‘sale’ of the car but how they look after you when you drive away… As soon as I had a problem with the car, they couldn’t be more helpful, they saw me the same afternoon and sorted the issue straight away – cant ask for more than this.
At no stage did I feel I was being sold to, there were no cheap ad-ons they try to offer you, no pushy sales talk, no pressure. Just a great company with great guys that look after you. Thanks Oliver!
I recently purchased a 911 from Chris at Harbour Cars and really enjoyed the entire experience. He was extremely helpful and made the entire process of buying a car a real pleasure. The whole team is extremely knowledgeable, they have a wide range of stock and the prices are very competitive. I would give Harbour Cars my highest endorsement .
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 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 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.
