Outstanding European engineering with a over half a century on UK roads
Today, Porsche has established itself amongst the most reputable sportscar makers in the world. It remains independent and highly successful, just as its founders had intended. In 1948, Ferdinand Porsche and his son Ferdinand set up shop in Austria with 200 workers and the intention of creating an agile, comfortable, and reliable sportscar. The first Porsche to be produced was the aerodynamic 356, 52 of which were built throughout 1949 in a small garage in Gmund.
It was just five years later in 1954 that Porsche sold its first car to the UK. Archibald Frazer Nash (AFN) operated from Isleworth Middlesex, and two years later it became the sole concessionaire for Porsche cars in the UK. In 1965, Porsche Cars Great Britain Limited was formed, and to this day remains the sole Porsche importer across the UK and Ireland. The current Porsche site in Calcot covers nine acres of ground and holds approximately 100 employees. There are a further 34 Porsche Centres across the country, all lending their expert advice to customers and, importantly, to us and our clients too.
Over its years of manufacturing some of the greatest sports cars in the world, Porsche has produced a number of timeless designs. In 1964, the legendary Porsche 911 was set to production and became an instant hit. Throughout the late 1960s, the 911 range was expanded to cater to a wider market, and the 912 was also launched. The 914 appeared in 1970, before the 911 Turbo was launched in 1975. In 1984, the 911 became known as the Carrera, before the 911 Carrera 4 and 911 Carrera 2 were launched in 1990. The Boxster was first hinted at with the unveiling of the concept car in 1993. The finished vehicle appeared in 1997, before the 911 was released as a totally new car the following year.
In the new millennium, Porsche continued to push boundaries and respond to consumer demand with the release of the Cayenne SUV, the four-door sports sedan, the Panamera, the Macan and two 718 models: the Boxster and Cayman. The current range offers an exciting sports performance to drivers of all lifestyles, with cars ranging from the traditional two-seater to family-friendly SUVs and professional sedans. We are proud to offer the full range here at Vantage Leasing.
Let driving be your only concern with a hassle-free Porsche lease deal
Car ownership has traditionally been a goal for most drivers here in the UK. Now, however, the fast development of technology and increasingly unrealistic costs have led many of us to look for an alternative that lets us keep up the pace. Here at Vantage Leasing, we offer our clients another route to the car of their dreams - a route that doesn’t require years of saving and doesn’t leave you with an expensive asset worth far less than it originally cost. Leasing is becoming increasingly popular every year, whilst car ownership becomes increasingly less appealing due to its inflated costs. The various methods of buying a car can require major upfront costs, long-term commitments, or expensive loans. Furthermore, owning your own car also leaves all the dirty work down to you; maintenance and services are all yours to arrange, and the subsequent costs are left to you to cover. Depreciation also means that buying loses car owners a lot of money of time. All new cars quickly lose value as soon they are driven from the dealership, and when owners eventually come to sell they will find their car is worth far less than they originally paid. The hassles of selling on second-hand also lead many drivers to accept a less-than-perfect price for their car only to be able to get rid of the car quickly.
When you choose to lease a Porsche with Vantage Leasing, however, you will be able to forget the concerns that so many car buyers have to deal with. Not only does leasing eliminate the stresses of buying, but it also comes with a number of its own unique benefits. Firstly, the Porsche leasing deals that we offer give you the ability to sign up, step in and drive away without handing over the large sums of money that purchasing requires. This lets you keep your savings set aside for when they are really needed.
Our leasing model will only require a small upfront payment. Following on from that, you will pay a personally agreed monthly sum that fits your personal circumstances and budget. The advantages of leasing are not only financial. Leasing also opens you up to new possibilities that you may not otherwise have considered. Our clients often find that they are able to pick from amongst the best cars on the market, all at an affordable cost worked out between us and the client.
What our clients like most about leasing with us, however, is the purely hassle-free driving experience that they are able to enjoy. Our clients are able to forget the worries of depreciation and let any problems be taken care of by use. The financial worries of buying a car brand new and the subsequent stresses of selling on second-hand can all be forgotten. When it comes time to upgrade to a newer model, our deals mean that you can simply hand the car back to us before switching to another car and a whole new driving experience.
Give your Porsche even more personality with a range of customisation options
We understand that choosing your new car is a very personal process, so we ensure that each client we work with leaves us with their perfect match. This means that we will never simply pair you up with the first car we have available. As with each client we work with, we will make the effort to find you just the car you’re after at exactly the right rate for you.
We hold a selection of some of the most popular and in-demand Porsche models already waiting for you to test out here at on the Vantage forecourt. Many of our clients find just what they want in the cars we have waiting but, for those people with a more particular idea of what they want from their new car, we will also offer a bespoke service that opens out all of the finer details of your brand new Porsche for personal customisation.
As with each of the brands that we work with at Vantage Leasing, we have developed strong and successful relationships with a number of Porsche dealerships. These partnerships allow us to specify exactly the car we are after, right down to the interior trim and exterior colour. These benefits are then passed on directly to you, giving you the chance to personalise your car all the way down to the smallest details.
We currently hold a collection of Porsche’s various models, each of which is listed below. For more information on the current range of cars, please see the descriptions further down this page. In order to find more detailed specifications for each of these models, and to find out more about the Porsche leasing contracts we have available, please visit the individual car profiles listed at the top of this page.

The Macan GTS brings all of the previous kit with upgrades including a sports exhaust system with sports tailpipe in black and sports suspension lowered by 15 mm with Porsche’s active suspension management function. The wheels are upgraded to 20” RS Spyder design in satin black, with the SportDesign package adding door sill guards.

There are new assistance items including Porsche InnoDrive, making the ride safer and more relaxing than ever. Lease a Porsche Panamera and also benefit from Porsche Connect, ensuring each new model is digitally connected to the outside world.
The car’s exterior is typically Porsche-like, combining sporting appeal and sophistication. The wheelbase has been extended by 3 cm, lending a visual difference to the new models, and more prominent sculpting at the sides creates a trim waist and a sense of lightness. At the front of the car is a set of LED headlights with four-spot daytime running lights and the Porsche dynamic light system on the Turbo model. Signature exterior features include a light strip to the rear of the car and three slimline three-dimensional rear LED lights with four-spot brake lights. At the very rear is an integrated and extended spoiler that reduces lift at the rear when driving at high speeds.
Inside the Panamera, the new model is totally redesigned whilst remaining recognisably Porsche. The console between the two front seats lifts towards the front and the dashboard is designed to be flat and wide, with the analogue rev counter located in the centre of the instrument cluster. The control concept is also new. The Porsche Advanced Cockpit includes a centre console with Direct Touch Control. The glassy appearance features touch-sensitive buttons for quick access to the most used functions, and in-between is the compact gear selector.

At the front, the Cayenne features a rising centre console typical of Porsche sports cars, reducing the distance between the steering wheel and the most needed vehicle controls.
