De Poorter


Garage De Poorter is already more than 45 years active in the car business. In 1965 Xavier De Poorter started distributing the brand "British Leyland" at the village of Zulte.

Under "British Leyland" were the following cars represented: Austin, Mini, MG, Rover, Jaguar and Land Rover. Later on the brand "British Leyland" was devided in 3 marques: Land Rover, Rover and Jaguar that were all 3 sold by garage De Poorter.

In 1985 there was a new garage build on the Kortrijksesteenweg at Harelbeke. Then we also decided to specialise more in Land Rover, a marque in full exposure.

In 1999 we decided to continue as an independent dealer, the recent developments in car business as a lead. Jaguar and Land Rover were again sold under the name of "British Cars Distributor".

Since january 1, 2000 the company was taken over by Kenneth De Poorter. Within a few years it is possible also Luigi De Poorter, who is now studying car mechanics at VTI at Waregem, will join the company.

Nowadays Garage De Poorter profiles itself as one of the main independent dealers of Belgium in distributing the following cars: Range Rover Vogue, Range Rover Sport, Discovery, Evoque, Defender, Freelander, Jaguar XJ, Jaguar XF, Jaguar XK, etc..


New cars: Apart from most normal standard models we also offer various exclusive editions at most economic pricing (Limited edition - Autobiography, etc..).

Second hand cars: We always have several second hand cars in stock (different brands - different price categories). These are always sold with warranty from our part.


We always have a minimum of 10 new cars in stock. Since April 10, 2007 we welcome you in our renewed showroom at Kortrijksesteenweg 320 at Harelbeke.


In our work store we have very good mechanics at service of our customers. Also the newest electric equipment and diagnostics are used to help our customers as quick as possible. Garage De Poorter is well known for our ability and quick service. With us the customer is still a customer, instead of a number.


We supply a 3 years full warranty with a maximum of 100.000 km on all our new Land Rovers and 3 years without limited kilimeters on all our new Jaguars.
