Normal or Problem?

Recommended Posts

I just bought a 2002 C2 with about 48K miles, 6-speed manual. As this is my first 996 (previously owned an '01 Boxster S and a '99 Boxster 2.5), I am still adjusting to the car's quirks.

I have noticed a momentary lack of power/responsiveness if I try to drive away immediately after a cold start. Specifically, when I first put the car in gear (forward or reverse) and give it gas, there is a brief hesitation (a couple of seconds) before the car decides to move. Once it "kicks in" everything seems fine, and I do not notice any further hesitation in responsiveness or acceleration.

I have not experienced this problem when the car is warmed up and/or has only been sitting for a short time.

Is this something I should be worried about, or is it just in the car's nature?

I have the same exact sensation with mine (Tiptronic), more noticeable in colder days. I have cleaned the throttle body thinking that was the culprit, but it didn't make a difference. And like you, it goes away after 20 seconds or so.
