Welcome to Sacramento Valley Region’s award winning website! Our 1,400+ 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. 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.


We’ve been using MSR or Motorsport Reg for our members to register for our events. Using it allows you to register and pay without needing to send a check to the even chair. It also is a place where you can sign waivers which are sometimes necessary for our event. It really easy but we thought we would put a little guide here to get you started. Once you have an account, you can use it for all future events. Not only SVR’s but other events that are advertised on MSR. You can find this guide HERE.
