Welcome to Sacramento Valley Region’s award winning website! Our 1,000+ members belong to one of Northern California’s largest and most active Porsche Car Clubs. Step inside and look around. Perhaps you’ll find something that interests you, and even better, perhaps you’ll join us!

Member Larry Wilson wrote that we started meeting in an elementary school auditorium in early 1962 with thirty five Porsche owners.

This year we celebrate our 55th year and are able to introduce our official SVR 55th Year badge, courtesy of Bob Cannon. You can read Larry’s entire article on our History page

We’re a region of Porsche Club of America (PCA) and are in Zone 7  . We enjoy a wide range of activities, including tours, dinners or other events which are too numerous to list here. We believe it isn’t just the cars. It’s the people. To find out more about our activities, our history or read our newsletters, follow the page links above.
