Help I need some technical assistance.

I have a dodgy left leg which means operating the clutch is a hit and miss affair. I am looking into fitting a hand clutch or a semi-automated system any advice will be gratefully accepted. Selling the car for an auto is out of the question to many emotional attachments.

Stuart,
 
Here's an interesting solution to your problem. Unfortunately the company's based in New Zealand and I'm not sure that they have a UK agent, but it would be worth contacting them. I wouldn't think that fitment would be beyond the ability of a competent mechanic?

Hi Stuart.
i owned a Sportomatic 911 back in the 1980’s. It was a ingenious idea where you had a normal manual gear stick, but only two pedals! The clutch in the Sportomatic gearbox disengaged when you touched the gear lever. I used my 911 as a daily driver into London. A lot of 911 owners were converting their Sportomatics gearboxes to manual cars. So there should be a lot of spare Sportomatic gearboxes around. I think they fitted the 911’s with them  up to the early eighties. So you should certainly be able to get your converted if you can find the parts and a company who knows about Sportomatic gearbox’s! 
Hope this is some help.
At least your car would be saleable when you want to sell it, as it will still be 100% Porsche!

I think the chance of finding the parts to convert to a Sporto are slim, I think the chance of finding someone who knows how to do it even slimmer!
