When my clutch went out I could also move the gear lever into all the gears without depressing the clutch.

Get under the car and see if an axle came off the transaxle.

There was a thread a while ago with something similar and the bolts fell out where the axle connects

Burnouts are not a good thing in a Porsche BTW. We don't have drag cars, but precision driving contraptions.

I'll only explain it in detail if you post pictures of Atlantis. I've always believed!!

So, where did it end up being, and how did you manage to buy there?

It's dark out and my spot in the garage is being used to spin honey. I'll take a pic later, but you would be able to hear and feel the gears working and spinning the trans if it was the bolts sheared. I'll say clutch failed disengaged.
