January 2105: An inquiry was received from the owner of the subject Porsche 968

in an attempt to obtain the history of the vehicle. With the help of Porsche Cars

North America (PCNA) past and present employees, the following information was

procured.

March 7, 2015: From Bruce Mundy (former PCNA Service Organization Manager):

“I know the car well. It was the first 968 Cabriolet in the USA and was retained

for internal use at PCNA. After use and display by PCNA and while the car was in

Reno waiting reassignment, Fred Schwab, (PCNA President - who was also on the

board of a nonprofit corporation in Reno, “Nevada Self Help”) They provided life

skill training for persons who became disabled later in life, e.g. involved in a

motorcycle accident to be assisted in regaining life skills. Schwab offered the car

for their annual fund raiser. The event was held at The National Auto Museum, the

Harrah Collection in Reno with former Nevada State Senator Randolph Townsend

as the auctioneer and the successful bidder was Buzz Moore. It turned out his bid

was more philanthropic than lust for a Porsche as he seldom, if ever, drove the car,

preferring instead his old pickup truck. After he died, John Strom (former PCNA

Marketing Manager) assisted Buzz’s widow, Kay, to sell the car as she also wasn’t

interested in driving the Porsche. Monthly, she briefly drove the car until it was

warmed up and to maintain a battery charge.”

March 9, 2015: From Bruce Mundy: “I recall that the 968 had significant cosmetic

differences from the Porsche 944 and, I also think, that even though the 944

Cabriolet existed, there was something different with the 968 Cabriolet and the

move of the Cabriolet top assembly from Neckarsulm, Germany (Audi and Porsche

944) manufacturing plant) with less or no involvement with the ASC (American

Sunroof Corporation). ASC originally developed and completed the manufacture of

the 944 Cabriolet. When the auction of this 968 was held; both my wife and I have

discussed and just don’t remember the exact timing, although we believe it was in

the spring of 1992. My wife worked at Nevada Self Help at that time as office

administrator and is thinking about who of the staff that is still around that might

have a better recollection. In the event any additional information is located, this

informational document will be updated accordingly. (Note, when I asked my wife if

she happened to remember when exactly the Porsche 968 auction for Nevada Self

Help was, her immediate response was “you mean when Buzz (Moore) bought the

Porsche that he never drove? We remembered that once when we visited Buzz and

Kay Moore for an affair they hosted in their home for Nevada Self Help, several

people were in the garage looking at the Porsche and, still laying on the passenger

seat, was a copy of the event’s brochure, evidently there since the night, we think

Buzz’s son-in-law drove the car from the event to Buzz’s home on Lakeside Drive

and parked it in their garage. When I had my hip replaced in 1997, my rehab was

at Buzz’s old business, at that time his son-in law’s business and his son-in-law was

my physical therapist. I asked him if Buzz had driven the Porsche yet and he just

chuckled said “no, I don’t think it’s been out of his garage since it was parked

there.””


March 12, 2015: Bruce Mundy, John Strom and Larry Morris (former PCNA VP

Service and Parts) met and discussed the 968 Cabriolet in an attempt to gather

additional details to assist the current owner (who purchased it from Kay Moore)

who now wishes to sell it. He and his business partner have only driven the vehicle

less than 2,000 miles since it was purchased in 2013. Current mileage is 6,207.


WILL TAKE PRE-73s, 911 SC Coupes, 930's, CARRERAs, 964 OR 993 AS PARTIAL TRADE OR FULL TRADE.
