991.1 Turbo S - Turbo issue

I’ve had my Turbo S now for 10 months and loved every drive. As many have posted, it is an amazing car.
 
I have noticed however an occasional lack of Turbo boost where the cars acceleration has been flat.
 
Today I took it to Millbrook for a driver training day. After a few quick runs the Turbo cut out completely. No visual warning lights and no under car evidence of an issue. 
 
We quit the training immediately and I drove the car home at a steady pace. the Turbo boost has come back but it’s going straight into Porsche to get fixed.  I wondered if anyone else has experienced similar issues?

Yes, I had the Turbo Actuator fail too, the symptoms on mine were a noisier exhaust & under full throttle the Turbo boost only reached about 0.4 bar. 
There were no warning lights up at all.
 
All fixed under warranty.
