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.

This is the second occasion when I have bought a vehicle from Harbour Cars. As on the previous occasion I found their staff courteous and professional, knowledgeable and informative. I would not hesitate to use this company in the future as I find them totally trustworthy.
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 have driven past Harbour Cars for many years and always checked out the nice cars they had in stock from the road. When we in the position to replace one of our cars we started to search for 911/ Cayman S. After a while doing our homework working out what we wanted and what options my wife insisted on, we visited a main Porsche dealer who really did not seem that attentive. We finally see a car on the internet at Harbour Cars, we took a trip down to see the car on a Saturday and was very impressed that all the cars were of a very high calibre and were spotless. We left then put a deposit down over the phone on the Monday and picked up a 911(991) 5 days later on the Friday. The service from Chris was great, he had a wealth of knowledge about Porsche’s and took the time to take us through all the details of the car and paperwork. We have now had the car about a month and Chris has phoned more than once to follow up if there are any questions or issues which is a nice touch. Thanks Harbour Cars.

We purchased a 2012 Porsche Boxster S from Harbour cars in May 2017 a great car that had been very well prepared.
Harbour cars give a great professional service that I could not fault. The salesman was very knowledgeable, new his Porsches inside out and offered us a decent trade in deal.
We did have a minor problem with the alarm on the car but this was fixed in a couple of days and a thorough and honest explanation of the problem was given, they also gave us a courtesy car while it was being fixed. I would have no hesitation in buying another car from Harbour cars or recommending them to a friend.
I dealt with Chris Vincent re the purchase of my Porsche 911 C2S. The overall experience and attention to detail from Chris was impeccable from start to car collection.
I would certainly recommend Harbour Cars to anyone looking for a quality Porsche.

Bought a Porsche 997 Gen2 4s from Harbour Cars and have not been disappointed. I researched the purchase for months in advance pin-pointing the best car to buy, the optimum price and best warrantee package. Harbour Cars were without question, the best dealership by far on all fronts compared to others I looked at in the market place within 100 miles of home. (SW London).
Gary was exceptionally helpful, honest and professional in approach. Notably the handover was similar to those I have previously experienced when buying a new car.
The car is excellent, nothing about the purchase has been a let-down. I highly recommend Harbour Cars to you.
From initial telephone call through to driving the car off the forecourt, Harbour Car’s team professionalism, honesty and customer service, particularly communication, were impressive.
They were very flexible and I recommend them to all. Great car and service!
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 spoke to Chris several times over the phone before travelling from the Midlands to view the car. Nothing was too much trouble for Chris. He answered all my questions accurately and honestly.
When I arrived I was impressed with the presentation of all the cars. The attention to detail was amazing.
I agreed to purchase the car and asked to get it delivered by a covered low loader. Chris arranged all this seamlessly. Nothing was too much trouble. Chris agreed to the car being serviced in advance, as it was due a big service imminently and put a brand new MOT on the car all prior to delivery.
Special thanks to Kev, the valleter, who really knows how to treat a car. Kev clearly has a passion.
Overall a great experience and would go back.
Thanks all, see you all soon!
After looking for my new car (Merc SLK55 AMG) for months on the internet, I found the one I liked the look of at Harbour Cars but it was 96 miles away from home. I was concerned that it was a long way to drive if the pictures and the write up were exaggerated (as has often been the case with other dealers), so I rang Harbour Cars and spoke to Chris who spent a lot of time going through all the questions that I had and putting my mind at rest that this car was perfect. I arranged to view the car that weekend and I wasn’t disappointed!
The car was everything and more that Chris had described to me on the phone and after a test drive I bought the car. I had thought of a few questions whilst on the test drive that I wanted to ask Chris when we returned to the showroom, but I was so blown away with the car, I forgot! When I got home I rang Chris and asked the additional questions, one of which was that I thought the arm rest lid seemed loose in the centre of the car when I lifted it up to check the storage. Chris admitted that he hadn’t lifted the lid up so went to have a look there and then and confirmed that it was loose (one of the brackets was cracked) and he would have it replaced FOC (which he did).
Chris and the staff in the showroom were all really friendly and normal, not like your usual car salesman! We were offered tea and coffee and I noticed a sign that said not to be offended if no-one came over to you right away, they want you to look around in peace, which is a welcome novelty in car showrooms!
All the cars at Harbour Cars looked as immaculate as the one I bought and during a conversation with Chris, he told me how difficult it is to source really good cars. This told me how much effort he puts into ensuring the cars are of the highest standard.
I have been in the motor trade myself for 33 years and it is very rare to come across a dealer with this level of honesty, service and with such fantastic cars.
All the cars at Harbour Cars are valeted to such a high standard that if they didn’t have number plates on, you would think they were all brand new. Every car is treated with Williams ceramic coat which protects the paintwork, comes with a 12 month bumper to bumper warranty which includes breakdowns! and the after care is out of this world. We bought the car on Saturday and Chris rang on Monday to ensure that we were happy with the car and said that he would be keeping in touch to ensure all is going well with the car.
I would highly recommend Harbour Cars to anyone and don’t worry about how many miles you are away from them, your journey will be worth it, and I will definitely be going back when I want another car, without wasting my time looking on the internet first.
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.
The staff were amazing, from the first time we met, until I took delivery of the car. The aftersales service is exemplary, even to the extent of a member of staff visiting my home on a Sunday, to drop the breakdown policy off with me. Harbour cars will have my business without fail in the future.
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 had done my research carefully and heard only very good things about Harbour Cars. True to form, my experience with them has been top-notch through Chris. The preparation and presentation of their cars is superb and this ultimately made the buying decision for me. So I’m now the owner of a sensational Cayman GTS, although that manual 997 Turbo caught my eye too. With Harbour Cars, you can rest assured that you’re buying quality and a level of aftercare and ongoing support second to none. I can imagine they get a lot of repeat business or business through referrals….they will get both from me I’m sure.
Harbour Cars are the most straightforward and honest company I have dealt with in buying/selling vehicles over the last 30+ years. Their fair pricing, specialist product knowledge, preparation standards, and enthusiasm for what they do are all apparent and result in a far more pleasant and professional experience compared with that from main dealers. I have yet to sample their after sales service, but expect this will be to an equally high level.
