Is it the same 2000 Boxster you posted another question about? If so, it doesn't look too incredibly complicated from the wiring information I have in front of me. There is no magical list of cars that we cannot do so it isn't completely off the table. I haven't personally done one in a Porsche before, but around these parts I see Porsches very rarely. This is another question for your local Autotechs since they would be the ones doing it. I would be comfortable trying it, but german vehicles are notorious for making their wiring difficult to access and for using strange wiring methods so I don't know how straightforward it would be. The information I can find doesn't list that car as having an immobilizer of any sort, but I don't know for sure how correct that is.

It is certainly doable. They are a common car around my shop, but the immobilizer bypass requires you to give up a key to be placed inside of the bypass so the car can be started by the Remote Start. The part and it's labor will run you about an extra $100 or so. As I am now at home for my "weekend" and not at my tech pc, I can't see the wiring diagrams. There may be extra charges if certain wires are in an "abnormal" place and difficult to get to but if I remember correctly they are pretty straight forward for a simple R/S install.
