Date to elaborate as to why?

I support my statement with... AT shifts mapping. If Porsche believed their engines are not supposed to experience low RPM they would upshift at 3000 RPM range, yet they upshift much lower.

Sure, I am not talking about running WOT at 1100 rpm - if you need power, rev it. But for everyday use - keeping between 1500-2500 is just fine.
Current rides: 2003 Porsche Boxster MT (me), 2019 Bolt LT (me), 2015 Audi Q5 (wife), 2008 VW Rabbit (2.5 inline 5, MT, well, for kid... but you now, it is the 5 straight)

Previous: 2014 Fiat 500e, 2016 KIA Forte5 SX, 2016 Fiat 500X, and some old days: Trabant, Fiat 126p...
