Clutch seems to be seized to pressure plate

After an extended period of storage (approx. 5 years), I've gone through the ignition, and fuel systems, and the engine is now running pretty well. However, now I am dealing with how to free the clutch, which seems to be seized to the pressure plate. I've tried several approaches in the garage: rocking the car fore/aft with clutch pedal depressed and in several different gears with no success; then with the rear of the car on jack stands, starting in gear (1st thru 5th),  then pulsing the brakes, then stabbing the brake pedal.....none of this has worked yet. I'd appreciate any suggestions of methods that others have had success with; I've heard that this problem is not that uncommon on early 911's.  Really trying to avoid having to take it apart if possible.
