The Porsche Club of America celebrates the finer things in life. We desire the comfort of good friends and good conversation, and we praise to a fault the world’s finest automobile. Since its founding in 1955, our close-knit community of Porsche owners has grown to 144 regions throughout the United States and Canada. If you own a Porsche, join now!
The Porsche Club of America Kansas City Region was chartered May 15, 1960 (rechartered March 28, 1966) as the 29th Region of the Club, less than five years after the inception of the national organization. Since 1960 the KCRPCA has grown both in membership, social activities and driving events. To date we have nearly 800 members counting primary and affiliate.
The Porsche Club of America Kansas City Region was chartered May 15, 1960 (rechartered March 28, 1966) as the 29th Region of the Club, less than five years after the inception of the national organization. The Porsche Club of America currently is comprised of 139 Regions.
The Kansas City Region has grown from the original small group of charter members to approximately 462 members with an additional 285 family and affiliate members. (Total as of 11.1.16 = 747) Our Region geographically covers the eastern part of Kansas nearly as far west as Manhattan and the northwestern portion of Missouri extending to Columbia and Butler. Our Region is bounded by the Wichita Region to the west, Cimarron and Ozark Lakes Regions to the south, St Louis Region to the East, and Great Plains and Schönesland Regions to the North Kansas City Region charter members all drove Porsche 356s as the 911 was still four years away from production. Now, all production Porsche models are represented, as well as examples of vintage race cars that show up at events from time to time. 911s are well-represented as well as fine examples of 924/944/968s with the newer Boxsters, Cayennes and Caymans growing in number.
The Kansas City Region sponsors a number of events throughout the year that are appealing to the wide variety of activities our members enjoy. For those that want to shine up their car and show it, we have judged and non-judged Concours D’Elegance and shine and show events. We offer organized driving tours throughout the area for those who want to stretch their legs a bit. For the true track junkies and those who really want to learn to push their Porsche to the limit in a controlled environment, there are Drivers Education weekends and autocrosses. For the truly speed-committed, a competitive PCA Club Race is held annually at the Heartland Park Topeka road course, one of the top tier tracks in the country. Social activities range from member open houses, picnics, dinners and Christmas parties, to the historically, most popular gathering, the Saturday morning breakfast. Our Ozark Weekend Multi-Region event held annually, nearly from the point of Region charter, combines several of the activities previously listed (and a few others) and is always offered with an open invitation to any PCA member from surrounding Regions (and beyond) to join us.
To be honest, I joined the PCA on a whim. I expected maybe a newsletter. What I found was a group of people who enthusiastically support Porsche ownership. I found people who like to make driving to dinner an event. I found people who like to get out and drive their cars along the curvy back roads. I even found people who like to race their cars. But mostly, I found people who like to meet and have fun while enjoying Porsche ownership. What I found was life long friends.
