Regional Porsche 356 Clubs

The Porsche 356 Registry has over 6800 members in 40+ countries. Many regional Porsche 356 Clubs located around the world provide opportunities for local events, help, and fellowship. They work cooperatively with the Porsche 356 Registry and we encourage our members to join at least one regional club and meet your local 356 enthusiasts.

The PORSCHE MEXICO AC CLUB, together with other recently formed Sports Car clubs, formed "The National Commission for Vintage Collection Sports Cars AC", thus forming part of the Mexican Federation of Sports Motoring AC and as a consequence of CODEME.

Currently the Porsche Club has more than 100 members and with the opening of the new Porsche Agencies in Mexico we hope that this number will increase without losing the original concept of the Club that is based in the first place on the friendship of the members, the integration of their families together with the pleasure of enjoying their "German Jewels".

Porsche 356 Club de France is one of the oldest branded clubs, still operating in France. It was in fact on December 9, 1975, that he was officially born. It should be noted that this date (9/12) was undoubtedly the only one available to celebrate the merits of Flat 4, the 3/56, being quite difficult to find on a calendar. This official birth followed a meeting held on December 1, 1975, during which the statutes of the Club were finalized. The Official Journal of January 22, 1976 formalized the newcomer.

Culture, by understanding the Porsche 356 as a work of art and the symbol of a special taste for good things in life.
