Welcome to the Las Vegas Region of the Porsche Club of America!
Las Vegas Region has been named the Zone 8 Region of the Year for 2018.
In the fall of 1973, a group of Porsche owners got together at the library on Flamingo Road and decided to start the process of becoming the Las Vegas Region of the Porsche Club of America. Those founding members represented a great cross section of society. The group included a craps dealer, contractor, retired CIA operative, attorney, pastry chef at a strip hotel, valet car parker, head doctor in the local emergency room, casino floor man, trumpet player, test site worker, airline flight engineer, a judge and a couple of fighter pilots. Their first challenge was to have the Sierra Nevada Region relinquish the territory which would become the Las Vegas Region. Having succeeded in that mission, the 25 members submitted a petition for recognition as a Region of the Porsche Club of America. The Charter was approved April 20, 1974.
In June of 1974, the Las Vegas Region Charter was presented to the Las Vegas Region’s first President, Eric Gurr, by Wally Cole (PCA Vice-President) and Don Kravig (Zone 8 representative). They made a weekend of it. The activities included an information get acquainted party at the home of Carl and Johanne Young. A pre-dinner cocktail party and dinner were held at the Showboat Hotel. After dinner, the group and their Porsches were spotted all over town. Unfortunately, Sunday morning rolled around early. Even the red-eyed competitors participated in the PCA/SCCA jointly sponsored autocross. Nobody was surprised when the Porsche drivers emerged victorious in each of the four different classes in which they competed.
Over the last 45 years, we have increased our membership to over 700 Porsche enthusiasts. The Las Vegas Region is in Zone 8 of the Porsche Club of America and covers Clark, Esmeralda, Lincoln and Nye counties in the State of Nevada.
The Las Vegas Region provides a multitude of events for its members to enjoy. The events are highly diversified, so there is something for everyone to enjoy. They include drives, tours, off-road runs, monthly brunches, Third Thursday socials, parties, driver’s education, rallies, concours, tech sessions and charity events.
The Club has a strong and long-standing relationship with the local Porsche dealer, Gaudin Porsche. We also support the five independent service centers throughout the valley.
