Hi, my name is***** symptoms that you describe are consistent with low battery voltage. I would try a jump start.

how low is the voltage to not be able to turn this small starter unit.i am an aircraft engineer and aircraft apu starters still turn on 23 volts off a 28 v rated battery

Anything below 12V when engaging the starter motor will give you trouble on the Porsche.
