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 Porsche. 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 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.

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.
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!
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.
Excellent! Just Excellent. My first experience of buying a performance car and every effort was made to ensure I was comfortable and happy throughout the process. From the initial phone call, to the video tour of the car and the sales process itself, I was thoroughly looked after. These guys go the extra mile! My car is awesome ! Thank you so much!
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 .
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…..!
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.
We were looking to sell our car as no longer needed so contacted Harbour Cars via email. Sam called us to run through the spec and came back later with a fair offer for the Porsche Macan, which we accepted
Rob travelled 3 hours to see us and appraise the car. He was thorough, very personable and knowledgeable, clearly having a high standard of cars he buys. Suffice to say we did the deal and he drove the car away and sold it very quickly.
When looking for another car I will definitely be keeping an eye on Harbour Cars stock and would not hesitate buying a car from them now I know the high standard they expect.
Thank you for a seamless transaction.

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.

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.

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.
What can I say, I don’t often give reviews and when I do I very rarely give 5 stars but these guys deserve it. Right from the start Sam has been a true professional, the 996 was prepared to a very high standard and I would even go as far as to say it was perfect which makes negotiating difficult! I genuinely believe they are all Porsche enthusiasts and looking at the cars in the showroom they only source the best available, the buying experience and the 996 have both been first class. Highly recommended
I recently purchased my Boxster S from Harbour Cars. I placed a deposit after an initial call in which all my questions were answered and a WhatsApp video call in which I was able to see any areas I was concerned about. The ever helpful and patient Geoff kept me updated on the preparation process for the car and addressed any issues that arose. On collection the car was exactly as described (if not better), the history file and paperwork was carefully arranged and the car beautifully presented. A first class experience and I would not hesitate in buying from Geoff and Rob at Harbour Cars again.
I bought a 997 2S about 6 months ago. Very easy process from start to finish and the guys at Harbour Cars made me feel very welcome. The car was great and in excellent condition. A few weeks ago I had an issue with the ventilation fan in the car and I ran it down to them and it was all fixed in a couple of hours. A new fan motor was fitted, all covered under the warranty. Again this was really easy and all done when convenient to me. Sam and Geoff are both available on the phone to answer any questions. When I look for the next one, this is the place I will start
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.
