Boxster used 0W oil which is extreme thin oil. Cold weather really has very little effect on the circulation of the oil. Cold weather is hard on battery and ignition. But once the engine started. There is no issue. Prolonged idling only adds more pullution and more carbon deposit on the injection system including valves. My 2 cents.
