As mentioned, 1800 or so miles however, something to note is that you're not just breaking in the engine, you're also breaking in the gearbox, suspension, brakes etc. Personally I followed the 1800 mile/4000rpm guide as per the manual however, I did vary the rpms up to 4000 trying to avoid stressing the engine at low rpms. Something to take note is that the engine will use oil during the break in period. For me, this settled at about 5000 miles but don't be surprised if you use a litre of oil in that time but you should have a bottle of oil given to you when you collect the car. Make sure you have it as it's part of the handover.

Well I hope the wait has reduced a bit.  I ordered my Shark Blue (although that colour didn't exist at the time) Boxster GTS 4.0 nearly 20 months ago...  It's finally built, nearly at the dealer, and I pick it up in a week.  Hooray!
 
I sold my 981 Cayman S shortly after ordering, not expecting for a moment it to take 20 months.  When I ordered I was told it would be about 9 months (spring 2022) and I figured I could live without the Cayman over winter 21/22.  When I realised how long I'd be waiting I bought a 944 S2 last summer for a bit of fun.  Will be out at the R19 meet this Sunday in that.
 
I'll post some pics, when I get a chance, but in the mean time what are folks thoughts on running in for the 4l engine?  Please feel free to point me at posts I've been too lazy to look for.  Found something on pistonheads which suggested:
 
up to 300......5000rpms
up to 420......5500rpm
up to 540......6000rpm
up to 660......6500rpm
up to 780......7000rpm
up to 900......7500rpm
Redline after about 1000 miles.
 
Cheers

Can't wait to see your photos, my order/s also Shark Blue although I have yet to see a Boxster in the colour.
Post up your configuration spec👍
Did you get the build photos during the process?

Just one other thought about running in. If, and of course it’s a big If, a warranty issue was to arise, the car will be plugged into a diagnostic which is a history of the way the car has been driven.

I might be rough but I’m slow as well

Local OPC has a new, sold Cayman 4.0 GTS in Shark blue with `gold wheels` ... the black offsets of the Boxster will be a huge improvement

I take your point, but I'm extremely careful with cars and look after them well.  I'm exactly the kind of person I'd want to buy a car from :-)
 
I intend on being restrained for sure.  As I said before I think it does make sense to gradually wind up the amount of throttle and the revs.   I'll be visiting everyone I know :-)

In all honest Olly, the 4.0 Boxster is a bit overkill for the road, the power delivery and torque are fantastic for a normally aspirated car.
 
If you are in a manual you are into licence losing speed before snicking the lever into third and the PDK is quicker to that speed, it is intoxicating though, have fun!

Stunning colour, maybe I will have to pop up to one of your meetings from Dorset to view it.
Still can't quite decide whether to go black or dark blue for the soft top, but leaning towards black to match the interior and wheels.

All I will say is originally when I specced the car Shark Blue wasn't available, and I didn't really like the blue which was available (very dark - can't remember the name).  I originally specced Camine with a red roof.  Then when I visited the dealer I saw a boxster with a red roof.  The colour as shown on the configurator really doesn't look anything like the colour in the flesh so I switched it to black.  I haven't seen a blue roof in the flesh, but if you're considering it it might be worth trying to find one to have a look at before making your mind up.

As Big Col correctly says the advice about running in is hidden in “same driving pleasure, more safety” in the Good to Know app. It is also on page 12 of the paper manual when you eventually receive it.


it states
 
In a new vehicle, the moving parts first have to be run in with each other. The first 3,000 km (1,865 miles) are required for this. The oil and fuel consumption may be somewhat higher than normal during this time.
 
Drive as follows during the running-in period:
 
Preferably take longer trips. If possible, avoid frequent cold starts with short distances.
 
Do not participate in motor racing events, sports driving schools, or similar.
 
Avoid high speeds of over 4,000 revolutions per minute. Drive at low speeds when the engine is cold.

It is important to note the advice to avoid short trips. Basically don’t do any journeys on which the oil doesn’t get to full temperature. It is also very important not to let the engine run too slowly.
It’s better to be spinning at 2,500 than trying to pull from low revs. In a PDK car this may well need you to use the gearbox manually to use a lower gear. 
 
Some experts do consider that stay under 4,000 for the entire 1865 miles is over simplified and a ramping up regime is preferable, but ONLY starting once the car has travelled 1000 miles at less than 4,000rpm. 
 
something like
up to 1000 miles 4000rpm 
up to 1200 miles 5000 rpm
up to 1400 miles 6000 rpm
up to 1600 miles  7000 rpm
 
during this ramping up period the excursions beyond 4,000 should be brief. Sustained high rev running should wait until after the 1865 mark.
 
Enjoy your new car!
you will find out that you can still travel very quickly without using more than 4,000!
Apply yourself and get those 1865 miles done as quickly as possible.
