Our Region

The California Inland Region (CAI) is a chartered region of the Porsche Club of America Inc. and is part of Zone 8. Our region was formed in 1987 and is generally made up of members in the 935xx Zip Code areas. Zone 8 consists of 15 chartered regions in southern California, Nevada, and Arizona.

CAI enjoys a membership of over 200 members covering hundreds of miles of fantastic roads spanning across Los Angeles, Kern, and Inyo Counties.

Region History

In 1986 Dave Stringham, a dedicated Porsche Club member, finally got tired of driving to Los Angeles or San Bernardino to attend meetings. After doing a little homework, he decided to start a local region. The minimum number of members necessary was 25. Dave, being very outgoing, would just walk up to a Porsche owner and tell them they were going to become a member. Enough took him seriously and in October 1986 California Inland Region was born. Joining our Zone 8 representative at the festivities were about 90 percent of the members. It looked like we were off to a good start. Dave also started the newsletter “Inland Rag” which was later renamed Winding Roads. Dave was instrumental in initiating some great events.
