Not sure how it happened but pretty sure it was in a Tesco car park :( only had the car for about a month!

What kind of options do I have for this kind of chip/damage?

Thanks
Max
Best bet is to take it to the best Detailer in your area and get their advice.

The damage doesn’t look all that bad but the picture is not really that great.

Sorry this happened to your new car.

There are 3 options:

1) Forget about it
2) Take it to the body shop and they will repaint two affected parts. Will cost high $$$$
3) Polish the hell out of it with rotary polisher. That should be able to fix the clear coat scratches, but not the deep one. For that use doctor colorchip, many layers. This will not perfectly fix it, but you can easily mask the damage, so only very close inspection will show it

I have tried step 2 (looked great ....cost bucks but it was new like yours so I sprang for it.)
Next time I tried Step 3 - Like others have said. You can certainly improve it with buffing and Dr' Colorchip, until you come into money and want your whole car corrected.
Looking at your pictures, I am afraid you are past both clear coat AND primary paint layer. So it will take at least Dr Colorchip, and hopefully only 1 or two layers, but it could take more. Do not worry though, go for it, follow the instructions, be patient and you will make it better I am sure!

There will always be morons who really do not care if you finally have your Porsche. Build up a few over the years, then get a correction/repair, respray.

A good detailer will probably be able fix it for $100-200. It's a skill; what you can't do they can. At least that's been my experience.
I had my whole car touched up and paint corrected for $250
