As businesses open up, please remember to support our sponsors and Thank Them for all they do to support us!
One of our initiatives to keep us connected during this COVID-19 pause in activities was asking for photos of the various Porsche models. We received 129 photos of your cars. (A very few were different shots of the same car.) You can see these at pcasb.org. These shots show the diversity of model ownership among our members. You may continue to submit photos to firstname.lastname@example.org.
With the Club’s successful Motoring to Malibu on August 22, SBR is slowly restarting its activities. Our two monthly breakfasts will now be more like a Cars & Coffee. We also have driving events scheduled throughout the fall. All activities will follow strict State of California and PCA safety guidelines. There will be no sit-down meal functions anytime soon. Planned activities are listed on page 7 and on pcasb.org.

The Porsche Club of America was founded in 1955 to meet the particular needs and interests of the owners of Porsche cars. Our general objectives are to promote the highest standards of courtesy and safety on the roads; the enjoyment and sharing of other events as may be agreeable to the membership; the maintenance of the highest standards of operation and performance of the marque by sharing and exchanging technical and mechanical information; the establishment and maintenance of mutually beneficial relationships with the Porsche WORKS, Porsche dealers, and other service sources to the end that the marque shall prosper and continue to enjoy its unique leadership and position in sports car annals; the exchange of ideas and suggestions with other Porsche Clubs throughout the world and in such cooperation as may be desirable; the establishment of such mutually cooperative relationships with other Sports Car Clubs as may be desirable.
The Santa Barbara Region of Zone 8, Porsche Club of America covers Ventura and Santa Barbara Counties. We are a region of more than 700 members plus over 500 affiliate members. We were chartered in June, 1964 and celebrated our 50th anniversary on July 19, 2014 in Santa Barbara.
This region exemplifies national PCA’s motto: "It's not just the cars, it's the people." Lasting friendships are the rule, not the exception within our club.
We meet for Cars And Coffee on the first Saturday of every month at Johnny Rockets and Panera Bread in the Camarillo Premium Outlets from 8–9:30 a.m., and on the second Saturday each month at Leadbetter Beach near Shoreline Beach Cafe in Santa Barbara, from 8:00–9:30 a.m.
Our region offers competitive driving events such as autocrosses, driver education, and even a gimmick rally just for fun. We go on numerous exciting drives on back roads throughout Southern California and hold various social events including a chili cook-off, a progressive dinner and our holiday brunch. A highlight every year is SBR’s Concours d’Elegance where Porsches are judged in competition or just placed for display on beautiful grounds for all to enjoy. We also organize several extended weekend trips to places of interest such as Yosemite, Zion and Bryce National Parks. Most of all we offer friendly people driving great cars. We invite you to join us for some fun driving your Porsche with other car enthusiasts.
Membership in the Porsche Club of America is open to anyone 18 years or older who owns or has ordered a Porsche automobile produced by the factory. A limited, six month "Quest" membership is also available for those searching for a Porsche to purchase. Dues are $46 a year, $90 for two years or $132 for three years and includes the monthly PCA Porsche Panorama magazine and our local monthly newsletter, the Der Auspuff.
