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 500 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”.

Everglades Region 20th Anniversary Celebration
Nov 3 – Nov 4 all-day

Everglades Region PCA is turning 20 years old this year. To celebrate, we have organized a 2-day, member event that you will not want to miss.

It all takes place November 3rd and 4th at the Seminole Casino and Hotel in Immokalee. The festivities begin at 5pm on Friday with a cocktail reception followed by dinner. The highlight of the evening will be our after dinner, guest speakers:

Brian Redman, the successful English racing driver will join us. Beginning in the 1960’s, Brian made 15 Grand Prix starts before turning his attention to sports cars. From Nurburgring, Spa, Monza, and the Targa Florio to Watkins Glen, Daytona and Sebring, Brian won them all in a variety of racing series. As a member of the 1969 Porsche factory team, he helped Porsche win the World Manufacturers Championship for the first time in the 908LH and 908/2. He then repeated this feat in 1970 with the 908/3 and awesome 917K. Brian and his wife reside in the Jacksonville area.

American born Bob Garretson, was owner and driver of a Porsche 935 race team that competed in the World Sportscar Championship and IMSA GT Championship. In 1981, Bob, Brian Redman and Bobby Rahal teamed up to win the 24 Hours of Daytona. Bob went on to win the 1981 World Endurance Championship for Drivers and retired shortly thereafter. He remains very active with Porsche enthusiasts and the brand. Bob and his wife are in the process of moving homes from California to Virginia.

As an added feature, we are working with The Rev’s Institute in Naples to have one of Brian Redmans’ race cars on display for our event.

Of course the casino will be open for your gaming pleasure, including music in the lounge area.The Seminole Casino is generously sponsoring portions of our program, including complimentary casino and hotel credits.

Saturday morning, members can enjoy breakfast in the casino at their leisure. The Concours will start mid-morning for member cars. Musical entertainment will be provided along with a cash bar. The entire program will wrap-up by 2pm.

The cost is $50 per person, plus your room night at the Seminole Casino Hotel if you intend to stay over Friday night, November 3rd.
