Tappet Noise

Started my GTS after it sat for over a week in the garage. Holy Guacamole did it sound like crap. Tappet noise was so loud it sounded broke. After letting it warm up for awhile and shutting it off and restarting a few times it got progressively quieter. Finally after the oil got up to 190 degrees it sounded normal again. I'm glad no one was around, I would've been embarrassed.
Anyone else ever experience this?

Don't forget they 'pipe' the engine sound directly into the engine compartment in the 718. I was very aware of all that sound when I test drove the 2.0 and 2.5 as part of my research for a future order of a 2019. I can tell you that, for what it is worth, the engine sound in my Cayman R was much more pronounced than my 08 CS similar to what you describe but learned, that it was the nature of the beast.
That is actually want I meant by piping.......good clarification.
