RS Performance Cars is a specialist motor dealership based in Cape Town and dealing exclusively in quality pre-owned performance cars.  We specialise in sourcing drivers' cars for the true enthusiast - i.e. cars we'd like to own and drive ourselves.

We're independent

We are proud members of the Independent Dealer Association (IDA), providing our customers with peace of mind that they're dealing with a reputable organisation. For more information, visit the IDA's website at

As a juristic representative of IDA Risk Management (Pty) Ltd (an authorised Financial Services Provider in terms of FSP licence no. 28260), we can offer buyers access to a range of insurance and warranty products.

As an accredited agent under the National Credit Act, we are also able to assist buyers in concluding financing agreements with most of the major banks in South Africa.  We have "approved dealer" status with WesBank [FNB], MFC [Nedbank] and Standard Bank.

What's in a name?

The "RS" in our name refers to the designation used by a range of manufacturers to identify their most sporty, hardcore performance models.  Think Porsche, Audi, Jaguar, Ford, Renault and Pagani amongst others.  Why "Performance Cars"?  Because we specialise in all models which were designed with performance as their primary focus – ranging from supercars to sports and GT cars, but also to hot hatches and track-day toys.  We are not a "luxury" car dealership – in our showroom you will find Porsches and Aston Martins sharing floor space with Subaru STIs and Renaultsport Meganes.  Click here to see what we currently have in the showroom.

What we do

We are constantly on the lookout, throughout South Africa, for performance cars which meet our criteria for quality at a reasonable price.  Our preference is for late-model, low-mileage cars, which have been well maintained and come with a full service history.  Experience has shown that new cars depreciate most in the first two years of ownership, so the clever money knows that it makes sense to buy a clean pre-owned car and let the first owner take the depreciation hit.

We tend to buy cars we'd like to own ourselves, i.e. drivers' cars which offer "the thrill of driving" (in the words of evo magazine).  Our owner is personally involved in sourcing and evaluating every car we buy – and every car we buy is put through a DEKRA / AA Multi-Point Check or the relevant manufacturer's quality check, with any identified issues being addressed and all servicing being brought up to date.

We understand that the only way to differentiate ourselves is through the quality of our product and our service – so, instead of trying to make a "quick buck" off our buyers, we seek to build enduring relationships with customers which will see them becoming long-term clients.  One of the ways in which we try to achieve this is by providing full disclosure on all the cars we stock – i.e. if there is something we know about a car, we'll share that information with our customers, allowing them to buy with complete confidence.

Thinking of selling your car?

If you are thinking of selling a performance car which meets the criteria outlined above (late-model, low-mileage, with a full service history and in good condition), we would like to hear from you.  We will pay cash for cars we are interested in stocking.  Alternatively, you may prefer to sell your car through us on a consignment basis.  Either way, you can start by giving us some information about yourself and your car – just click here to complete and submit the online form.
