1992 Porsche 968 Cabriolet - WP0CA2962NS840211
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, he following information was procured.
March 7, 015: 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, red 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, .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, he 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, f ever, rove the car, referring instead his old pickup truck. After he died, ohn Strom (former PCNA Marketing Manager) assisted Buzz's widow, ay, o sell the car as she also wasn't interested in driving the Porsche. Monthly, he briefly drove the car until it was warmed up and to maintain a battery charge."
March 9, 015: From Bruce Mundy: "I recall that the 968 had significant cosmetic differences from the Porsche 944 and, also think, hat even though the 944 Cabriolet existed, here was something different with the 968 Cabriolet and the move of the Cabriolet top assembly from Neckarsulm, ermany (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, lthough 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, his informational document will be updated accordingly. (Note, hen I asked my wife if she happened to remember when exactly the Porsche 968 auction for Nevada Self Help was, er 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, everal people were in the garage looking at the Porsche and, till laying on the passenger seat, as a copy of the event's brochure, vidently there since the night, e 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, y rehab was at Buzz's old business, t 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, don't think it's been out of his garage since it was parked there.""
March 12, 015: Bruce Mundy, ohn 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.
