Hey great response Bigsmoothlee, very helpful

So what do you do when you are rolling at 5-8 mph but not in first, maybe coasting in neutral maybe decelerating in 2nd??

BTW I have been driving stick shifts for over 35 years. Learned to drive on a stick shift. Never wore out a clutch or hurt an engine in 10 different manual cars. Are Porsches that fragile? I don't think so. You have to be smooth on the rpm up, not gun it, so as not to get the buck. Boxsters S is actually very smooth on this, I was surprised. Maybe it's because I know how to drive a manual.

BTW How long have you been driving a stick that this situation is so out of left field??
