initial warm up & temp guage needle

Fellas got a question for you all regarding warming up the car and yes i have done the search
Anyway it has never taken me more then just few minutes to warm up my other cars ( temp needle at 1/4 mark ) but it takes for ever for the temp guage in my 964 Turbo to get to that mark,am i missing something here
Btw how long does it/should it take to warm up these beasts
Thanks

On a warm day, 15-20 minutes. In the winter it may never reach the first mark. Welcome to the world of air cooled engines. No thermostat to keep water in the engine block to force the temperature of the block up quickly. All you have is air and 10-12 quarts of cold oil.

it will take forever if you let it sit and idle
- that's bad for the engine too

Drive off - easy on the pedals - as soon as it doesn't stumble

I agree w/ all of the above, in addition the cooling on the newer engines is very efficient.
