Expect the best, and accept no substitute.
When the ignition switch fails to operate the starter on your manual transmission Boxster, check your floor mat, It can prevent the clutch pedal from operating the clutch interlock switch.

IIRC that was my very first hack: Remove the clutch interlock.
I lived in St. Louis where the winters can get a bit brisk. With the interlock removed, I collapsed open the window and strat the car so that the engine and seats would be warm by the time I drank my coffee.
Happy Boxstering
