Not true. If the correct flywheel is used, no re-balancing of the crank is necessary.

The stock Boxster flywheel is dual-mass, so I'm not sure what the options are for lightweight flywheels.

If you are only interested in racing, then a light flywheel is a good performance booster, as the engine will rev quicker. However, for regular street driving, it can be a lot more difficult to drive, depending on how much lighter the flywheel is. Often times a much more aggressive clutch is matched with a lighter flywheel, making starting out smoothly even more of a chore.
