1999 Boxster - stalling?

Hey everyone!

Something weird is happening with my Boxster at the moment. Everything has started with the misfiring, so I had the spark plugs replaced. Then, after a week or two, it began stalling. Several times it simply got stuck after I stopped, so that I had to re-start it.
I checked plugs again, they are clean, no oil, no spots, nothing. The wires are also new, so I cannot determine what else should I check.

Have you read codes?

Misfires can have a lot of other causes. Cracked coils, mixture issues, vacuum leaks, etc.
