During a service visit, my dealer provided me with a Boxster loaner with tiptronic. I really disliked it initially. While in automatic mode driving in slow traffic, the shift program got into the tallest gear as quickly as possible. By my perception, the transmission was forcing the engine to lug. Out of traffic and on a 'fun' two lane road, I used the throttle much more agressively. The automatic shift action completely transformed! It held gears to redline and downshifted through the gears as I decelerated. I believe the tiptronic has a split personality based on driver input.

birdman replied to poppies's topic in 997-1 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 2S, Carrera 4S)I was told by a European friend "lifetime" meant 100,000 km (60,000 to those of us in the USA). Has anyone else heard that?
birdman replied to BennyGca's topic in 997-1 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 2S, Carrera 4S)My '06 997 was optioned with the PSE from the factory. If I drive with very light throttle input and it will not go quiet as it passes through the rev range you describe. Like yours, if my foot is in it, it goes quiet between about 30 - 50 mph. I believe this is correct operation by design.
