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 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!
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.
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 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!
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.
What can I say about Harbour Cars? Well, I’ve bought two cars from them and will undoubtedly buy a third when the time comes. They are a breath of fresh air with respect to independent dealers – the cars are well prepared before they are advertised for sale, there is no hard sale and, crucially, Rob and Kier stick to their word.
Progress phone calls are always well received, rather than having to chase a dealer about your new purchase, and a very minor niggle was sorted in a painless and efficient manner.
I couldn’t recommend Harbour Cars enough
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.

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 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.
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.

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 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.
Having purchased many Porsche’s in the past I would say overall the quality of vehicle and service received is as good as any Official Porsche Centre and in my opinion the best independent in the UK. Great Stock, Great cars, fair prices and overall a very good service. Would not hesitate in buying future cars from this dealer
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!
Having owned a couple of 911’s over the years this was undoubtably the best specialist Porsche dealer experience i have had. Extremely well presented and documented stock and Gary was superb at guiding me through the decision with skill , knowledge and humour. I’m delighted with my purchase and i would not hesitate to recommend Harbour Cars to you if you want quality, fairness and world class customer support.
