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 PCA, with a long history and strong commitments to PCA. Zone 12 includes 9 regions encompassing most of Florida, Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands. Zone 12 is 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”.

If you have a general question about PCA or need to contact the Everglades Region, you can send an email to: evergladesregionpca12@gmail.com . One of our officers will reply to you.

OKTEENERFEST – a special interest Porsche event
Sep 22 – Sep 25 all-day

Whether your 914 is a beater, a daily driver, or garage queen, make plans now to join other 914 owners for some fantastic driving, plenty of socializing, a bit of showing off, and a truckload of give-aways. What’s that? You say your 914 is on jack stands? No worries. Plan to attend anyway as there is always an empty seat available. You won’t be disappointed.

After two years being held in the Smokies of east Tennessee, the event was moved east into the Blue Ridge Mountains of western North Carolina in 2015. Due to popular demand, we return to Banner Elk for a second year in 2016. This year’s route features portions of last year’s drive with some added surprises including a small but exciting segment of The Diamondback. As usual, the day drive includes not only a ton of twisties, sweepers, and ear-popping elevation changes but plenty of stopping points to get out, stretch, and enjoy the scenic splendor of the mountains. The lunch stop this year will be in Blowing Rock, NC.

If you have not been to an Okteenerfest in the past, mark this one on your calendar. Last year over 100 people attended representing 60+ 914s making Okteenerfest the largest 914 gathering in the U.S. in recent history! We expect those numbers to grow in 2016.

In addition to the driving, Okteenerfest features plenty of good eating, an awards ceremony, tons of give-aways from some very generous vendors, a Peoples Choice Car Show, and some of the nicest people you will ever meet gathered in a single place.
