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.

Would fully endorse buying a porsche from Gary and the team at Harbour Cars.
They have a good stock level and are upfront and transparent in talking through the purchasing experience and the prep of the car your interested in.
The cars are prepped to a very high standard with a full breakdown of any work carried out.
Its a special, yet grounded experience, where you’re not being sold a load of waffle.
I would buy again from Harbour cars, given the assurances of such a reputable dealer.

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.
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.
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.
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 bought my first Porsche from the guys at Harbour Cars a month ago and I couldn’t recommend them highly enough.
They were exceptionally generous with their time in guiding me through the process and were always happy to answer any questions.
The buying process was all handled very professionally and the after sales care has been exemplary too.
Would have no hesitation about recommending them or buying another car from them in the future.
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!

We have just bought another Mercedes from Harbour Cars and are delighted with it. They successfully adopted an intuitive approach to identifying and satisfying our precise requirements (of which we only had a vague idea before we contacted them). This is the second time they have sourced exactly the right car for us. This type of service is way above anything one would expect from a main dealer or other motor trader.
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 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.
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.
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
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 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…..!
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!
