I hope this is not an omen of things to come.

This happened on my way to work today. Box has been running soooo good right now with no issues so i hope this is not where things start happening. I could not find any wood to knock on in my car.

Don't worry... should pass quickly, and not lead to any lasting problems; unless you were cranking "Bark At The Moon".
Then all bets are off.

Uh oh. Time for an exorcism.

Of course, since its a Porsche the exorcism will cost 38% more because anyone who can afford a Porsche can afford an exorcism.

From what I understand, that is the only known tell for IMS failure. Unless of course you made it to 66,667. Then all is well
