Porsche Club Of America – Chicago Region

The Chicago Region of the Porsche Club of America was established in 1957 as the Chicago-Milwaukee region, making the 6th region in the country. The region was the host of the fourth Parade in 1959 at Nippersink Manor in southern Wisconsin.  By 1960, the northern Illinois membership had grown so large that it could support it’s own region and a split at the border could be made. Beginning in 1960, the original Chicago-Milwaukee region became the Chicago region and a new region was created in Milwaukee. We are one of the largest regions with more than 3500 members and are part of PCA’s Zone 13.

  • The highest standards of courtesy and safety on the roads.
