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.

This is our first experience of Harbour Cars. We have been Porsche enthusiasts for a number of years and have dealt with several independent garages. We found the experience of dealing with yourself and other staff at Harbour cars a real pleasure. You provide a very professional service and made the whole experience very enjoyable. Most importantly of all we are delighted with the car and would not hesitate in recommending Harbour cars to any of our friends and other prospective Porsche owners.
Many thanks Chris!

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 had been looking for a SL350 for a couple of months when I came across Harbour Cars. Although it was farther than I really wanted to travel I enquired about the car, and was quickly contacted by Chris who talked me through the car and its history. As a result of this conversation, and after reading the testimonials on the website, I decided to purchase the car unseen with the proviso that I would be refunded if the car didn’t meet my expectations. The car was exactly as described, and had been prepared to a very high standard. The fact that they include a very comprehensive warranty with all of their cars was a major factor in my decision to purchase from them. Chris was a great guy to deal with, and carefully showed me around the car explaining the various functions. Having left the showroom we had only travelled a few miles when an alarm appeared on the dash. I contacted Chris who immediately set off to help. It turned out to be a very minor problem, and we were soon on our way. I would recommend Harbour Cars to any prospective purchaser, and I fully intend to purchase my next car from them.
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!
Bought a Porsche C4S from them car was as they said it would be lovely, first class services and great people to deal with I’ve had some expensive cars in my time from new to used but this is the best service I’ve come across.
Our recent purchase of a Golf GTI was a great pleasure at Harbour Cars.
This is a well organised and experienced company selling cars of excellent quality.
Chris was so helpful from our first enquiry through to collection of our car, at no time were we made to feel under pressure to buy.
Kev’s preparation of the cars can only be described as exceptional.
The aftercare received to date also lives up to the standards of our ‘buying experience’.
We have no hesitation in making this review and we would highly recommend Harbour Cars and the team.
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.
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.
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 recently bought a Boxster S from Harbour Cars and am so happy that I purchased from them. The attention to detail and customer service is second to none and I would have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone. Oliver, the sales person who handled my purchase, was very professional and even made himself available on a Sunday for me to pick the car up, as I am not a local, which was a lovely touch.
In the future, if I decide to change my car, I will definitely use Harbour cars again.
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!
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.
For the first time, after some 53 years and twenty-odd cars, I actually bought a car without seeing it in the flesh. It was quite a long way away but the car itself, a Porsche Boxster S, certainly looked nice from the photos and description, and after a few calls back & forth with Sam & his colleague Geoff they gave me the confidence to trust Harbour Cars so I took the plunge, part-exchanging my Boxster.
Come collection day, I was still pretty nervous, but on meeting the guys and seeing the car itself I was more than delighted. Everything was as described, and a nicer bunch you couldn’t wish to deal with; what is usually a rather fraught experience was transformed into a very happy one.
Many thanks to Sam, his colleague Geoff, and everyone at Harbour Cars – you fully deserve your excellent reputation.
I had been looking at 981 Cayman S for a while and Harbour cars got just the model I was after in stock. Geoff was brilliant and kept us informed all the way through the process. The car was in stunning condition when we picked it up, would not hesitate to recommend them or use them again.
