Diablo PCA provides a welcoming and engaging community that

enriches our member's Porsche ownership experience.


What's New


New - 12/8/2022 - Diablo PCA Dinner at Mankas GrillMankas Grill at Mankas Corners in Fairfield is happy to have us for dinner in Solano County. Join your fellow Club members for some great food and conversation. This is a great opportunity to socialize with both old and new members. Registration for dinner is required as the restaurant is limiting us to 20 people. Please RSVP by December 6, 2022. Click here to RSVP. 

Update - 12/10/2022 - Diablo Region Holiday Party and Porsche Gift Exchange. As many of you have noted, the ticket price of this event has risen significantly this year despite a substantial subsidy by the Club. In the spirit of the season, the Diablo Board of Directors has taken the decision to “hold the line” and reduce the event’s ticket price to $50 per person by increasing the Club’s subsidy. Those members who have already purchased event tickets at the original $75 price will be reimbursed $25 per ticket. This year’s annual Diablo Region Holiday Party and Porsche Gift Exchange will be hosted by the Club at St. Mary’s College, Moraga. The event will begin at 5:00 with a social time including passed hors d'oeuvres and a club sponsored wine and beer bar. After dinner and dessert, we will have a Porsche Gift Exchange in Claeys Hall. The theme is anything Porsche. The items should be of a Porsche theme, wrapped and in “gift-giving” condition. We suggest a maximum value of $35 for the gifts. This year the Club is supporting the Toys for Tots program. Please bring a new unwrapped toy and let's see if we can make the holidays brighter for less fortunate youngsters. Click here for additional information and to sign up for the event. Please purchase your tickets by Thursday, December 1, 2022.

12/17/2022 - Dickens Fair, Discover a One-of-a-Kind Adventure. Visit London at the historic Cow Palace Exhibition Halls! Enter the winding lanes of Victorian London and immerse yourself in a world of music halls, theatres, pubs, dance parties, and charming shops overflowing with hand-made holiday treasures. Enticing aromas of roasted chestnuts and hearty foods fill the air. Discover holiday revelry in this lamp-lit city brimming with hundreds of lively and colorful characters from the imagination of Charles Dickens, the pages of history, and the sometimes saucy world of the Victorian stage. This event will put even the Grinchiest Grinch or biggest Scrooge in the Christmas spirit. So don't miss it. This is a group buy for discounted tickets for the Dickens Fair. We need a group of 20 people for the discount. Click here to purchase tickets or for additional information. Ticket sales extended to end on Monday, November 28, 2022.

As the saying goes, "many hands make light work". We are looking for members to raise their hands as volunteers. As Diablo Region members, we enjoy an active calendar of driving tours, DE days, social events and other club activities throughout the year. These events simply don't happen organically. It takes the combined efforts of many volunteers to make the magic happen. If you are interested in helping out, we can surely use your help. We are especially interested in people helping to plan events. Whether you are an original "Founding" Diablo member or joined yesterday, volunteer today by contacting Brian Adkins at This email address is being protected from spambots.
