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 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.
I had been looking for a long time for the perfect Cayman S and found the one at Harbour cars, I phoned and spoke to Sam who was very professional and knowledgeable about the car, I then arranged a flight from Newcastle to Southampton to view, test drive and purchase the vehicle this is how confident I was after speaking with Sam. The service I received was outstanding and the car was as described. I would genuinely like to thank Sam and Harbour cars for a great buying experience that got me the perfect car, if your in the market for a top class sports car then this is the place to go
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…..!
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.
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.
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.
I dealt with Chris Vincent re the purchase of my Porsche 911 C2S. The overall experience and attention to detail from Chris was impeccable from start to car collection.
I would certainly recommend Harbour Cars to anyone looking for a quality Porsche.
I bought and eventually sold my 997 Carrera 2S with Harbour Cars after much research into the various models and dealers. Being a very thorough and particular purchaser when it comes to cars, there aren’t actually that many dealers that I would buy from! Harbour Cars however, were clearly hugely well informed in their chosen product range with a very high standard of stock and, importantly for me, not at all pushy. I always felt that their business model relied more on gaining and looking after a long-term customer who would potentially buy and sell multiple cars in the future than gaining a ‘quick hit’ now to shift a particular car. Competitive on price but not always the cheapest (the cheapest is not always the best option in this line of purchase!), this is a professional company where the polite and objective team helps to make buying this type of car the pleasure it should be. I would not hesitate to purchase from them again and probably will do when the time is right.
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.
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

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 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!

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!
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.
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.
