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.

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!
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.
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.

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.
Mr. N Davies
Thank you for your kind hospitality last Thursday and for making the sale of my Boxster such a smooth and easy process. It’s been a real pleasure dealing with Chris and yourself on two occasions now.
I look forward to the prospect of another purchase with Harbour Cars in the future.
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 bought a 997 Turbo from Harbour Cars and can not recommend them highly enough. Rob , Gary and the team are extremely professional and experts in their field which gives you great confidence in the cars they are sourcing and selling. The after sales service has also been fantastic unlike other garages that often let themselves down after the purchase. Based on my experience I will certainly be buying more cars from these guys in the future.
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!
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 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.

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.
I’ve had various experiences of ‘service’ – from main dealers and a range of independents when buying cars – but Harbour Cars are by far the best I’ve had the pleasure of dealing with to date. Having just bought a car with Gary’s help, if you are at all interested in the type of vehicles they stock, I’d recommend you contact them for a chat or by email – better still pop in to their showroom to see for yourself. Gary is a good listener. Starting from my initial phone call, he didn’t judge me on my current car or my initial ‘must haves’ for the new one – but took time to listen and also talked me through some ownership issues. Using his knowledge and experience of the marque – the various models, options and combinations available – Gary helped me re-think my original wish-list for a 911 into one that would actually deliver what I really wanted. Even better, Gary then sourced the ideal car – and made sure it was professionally prepared to their own good-as-new standards – properly inspected, fully serviced, detailed, documented and warrantied. The comprehensive Harbour Cars package was fundamental to me – as finally owning a 911 is a lifetime’s dream – trusting the people you buy it from to back up that initial sale with continued good service is vital. If you’re lucky enough to be looking on the Harbour Cars website, contemplating the car of your dreams – I’d recommend you make that call. Exceptional service so far.
Purchased a Porsche 911 GT3 from Harbour cars and couldn’t be happier. Having spent considerable time speaking to various well regarded specialist dealers and researching the model I viewed three GT3’s for sale, one of which was at Harbour Cars.
Prior to travelling from London for a viewing and test drive Gary was able to provide a lot of detail on the car over the phone. The service before and after purchase was excellent and not at all pushy on sales. Gary spent a lot of time showing me the car and the test drive was extensive, all up spending over 2.5hrs going through all the necessary details.
The after sales service has been excellent 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 had received positive comments from other Porsche specialists about Harbour Cars and can attest they are knowledgable, relaxed and very easy to deal with. I would happily recommend Gary and Harbour Cars to any prospective purchaser.
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.
