Welcome to Everglades Region of the Porsche Club of America

Our region covers most of Southwest Florida including the counties of Charlotte, Collier, DeSoto, Glades, Hendry and Lee. We host over 800 members.

The Everglades Region is part of Zone 12 of the PCAz12-logo

The Everglades Region has a long history and strong commitments to PCA. Zone 12 which includes 9 regions encompassing most of Florida, Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands. Zone 12 is also home to two of sports car racing’s most illustrious events, the Rolex 24 Hours at Daytona and the 12 Hours of Sebring. Sebring is also home to the first PCA Club Race of each year, the 48 Hours of Sebring. You will find us at our busiest when much of the country is spending their time inside, content to polish their Porsche’s while the winter winds blow.

The camaraderie in our Region comes from the diverse backgrounds of our members and their passion for the Porsche brand. From social events to autocross, road rally’s to car shows, we strive to offer a broad range of events where our members can engage around our beautiful cars. We encourage the sharing of information and PCA spirit in our Region and have created this website to enhance our communication and experiences with one another.

If you own a Porsche and are interested in joining our club please select the “Membership” link above and click on” Join Us” for the PCA Online application. Or if you prefer, you may contact our Membership Officer directly under “About Us”.

Zone 12 PCA – Charity Event at American Muscle Car Museum
Nov 10 all-day

Please mark your calendars for the chance to visit the American Muscle Car Museum (AMCM) in Melbourne, on Saturday afternoon, November 10. This is where Space Coast Region holds their Autocrosses, but you’ll actually get to go inside to see all the amazing cars, displays and classic automobilia. Zone 12 and Space Coast Region will host a charity event at this one-of-a-kind private collection.

AMCM is not open to the public, but they do open on special occasions to host non-profit fundraisers, car activities, and educational tours for school-age children. It’s a 123,000-square-foot complex that houses the personal collection of Mark Pieloch. Mark has been a car enthusiast for over 40 years and has amassed more than 250 cars, ranging from classic 1950s models to 1970s American muscle cars, to practically every color of Ford GT, to modern “sophisticated” muscle like a 2017 Shelby GT350R, and 14+ of the all-time most collectible Porsches. 

Registration will be on ClubRegistration.net, starting in September. Attendance will be limited, and your charity donation will go toward a great cause. The Wabasso School is a special education center serving students ages 5-22. Students are provided specialized instruction, so they can not only achieve academic gains but also increase their social, emotional and behavioral skills. They work to develop communication, daily living, and occupational skills to integrate successfully into the real world. 

Complete event details will be coming in late summer, such as lodging options, caravan plans and best travel routes, dining plans and other info. Please plan to take advantage of this great opportunity to visit this wonderful private car museum with some of your PCA friends, while also helping a worthwhile cause.
