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.

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 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 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…..!
Second time dealing with Harbour Cars and second time of being very happy! Geoff was simply amazing from start to finish and answered all my queries perfectly and professionally. They have supplied me with my dream car twice and I am sure there will be a third and fourth time!
Harbour cars recently purchased my Porsche Macan S. Great service all the way through the process and a firm you can really trust. Sam and the rest of the team were very professional and would definitely sell to them in the future.
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.
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.
Picked up a Cayman S a few weeks ago and was really impressed by the fantastic service of Harbour Cars. Having dealt with many other dealerships in the search for the car, I can attest that Harbour Cars are of the highest standard. Every step of the purchase was incredibly professional and the after service care is phenomenal. Their cars are of a incredibly high standard, I will definitely be going back if I’m lucky enough to afford another Porsche
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!
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!
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 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 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.
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.

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.
