I'm having intermittent trouble starting my 2003 996 cab. Sometimes. but not all the time, when I try to start my cab (by turning the key all the way to the right, of course) nothing happens-no cranking, nothing. I must go through two or three cycles of returning the key all the way to the left and try starting again in order to get the car to crank.

Like I said above the problem is intermittent and only occurs about 25% of the time.

Does anyone have any ideas what might be the problem?

The two most common problems are a misaligned clutch switch and a faulty ignition switch. For the clutch switch - You should be able to hear a click when you press the clutch all the way down. You can also test is with a volt/ohm meter.

For the ignition switch there isn't much you can do but replace the switch. Porsche introduced a new switch as of Sept 5, 2003 production.
