I heard that Porsche recommends "start and go" simply due to the amount of extra pollution that warming it up for a few minutes in idle produces. They're very conscious about pollution, you know. The black forest must have got its name from all the cars blowing through there year after year

Personally, I start, take off immediately, but keep the rpms under 4k until it's at normal operating temperature... then I nail it and enjoy myself.
'97 Boxster (Black Hole for 42,000 Dead Presidents and counting) - 122k
New motor, transmission, suspension, and on and on and on it goes...
