A cardboard/fiberboard panel.

That tab is for a brace that supports the panel.
The cardboard panel that Norm referred to is attached at the four tabs with speed nuts (yellow arrows).

That is for the cowl support - the diagonal black piece going from the cowl to the trunk floor in the above photo from Bill.

I noticed something about this part. It has 2 spot welds on it near the middle perhaps to hold that box it's attached to? My car (not pictured) originally came with the keypad alarm system. The keypad was the only thing that remained next to the headlight switch. The wiring is long gone and but so is this bracket pictured here in the circle.

The key pad was a Clifford alarm. Not factory.

The box attached to the cowl support is the cruise control brain.

Try the salvage yards. I think you'll find one.

so after doing my research on the part number I think I may have nailed it. I tried contacting ladismantlers in Sun Valley and oddly they couldn't help and now I know why. The part only costs $7.74 new! Einmalig has it in stock. The part number turned out to be 911.501.347.00..It's #15 circled in the schematic below.....


To further verify the part a company specializing in porsche body parts located in England Rosepassion.com has images of the part on their site. It seems to me I might have to do some bending of the part since it's not pre bent into it's shape. As seen below...

You were right about the cruise control brain being attached to this and the alarm being a Clifford
