I have had vehicles do that, the amount of torch the engine is putting against the transmission makes the engine and tranny tilt to one side. This is normal. If you watch a truck (pick up) or a car at stop, idle high (reving up and down) you will see the front of the car slightly rock from side to side. This is the torque that the engine is pushing against the tranny; since the engine and tranny are bolted to the frame, the engine and tranny can only move so far; therefore the whole car/truck will move - and yes, as well as the tranny shifter. You can take it in and have the tranny mounts checked to be sure, but I'm sure it's fine.

Check engine light on?
Is it a manual or auto? Assuming its a manual, is there an ABS light on? If so or if you hace changed the brake pads recently or even had the tires off or rotated, there could be a problem in the brake pad sensor or abs wheel speed sensor.
Check with Porsche service (your closest dealer) for recalls or TSB (Technical Service Bulletins) related to your concern and check the cayman/boxster owners clubs for similar posts and resolutions.
Hope that helps.

Use a flat bladed screwdriver or you hands to lift the bottom of the boot away from the console. It has small clips that hold it down on the console. They just pop out. Once the boot is free all around and if you have the standard shifter, you can then pull the shifter off. The amount of force may vary depending on your car. Some have found it very easy to remove, other have found it more difficult. If it is difficult to remove, sit in the passengers seat, put the shifter in reverse and using the floor for leverage, pull on the shifter while pressing into the floor with your feet. I should come off. If not, try applying some heat to the neck of the shifter just below the knob, being careful not to damage the leather, and try again. If you have a shifter other than the base shifter, you will need to use a T30 Torx screwdriver to loosen a screw under the boot in the front of the shaft of the shifter just below the knob.

you propably had this problem fixed by now.
The most problem with 915 transmission is that your 1st synchro ring is broken or the so called Doog teeth are gone ... the trany has to be fixed.
