Cold Start 2014 S Hybrid - clicking/grinding noise

Just bought this car a couple days ago. Have notices that on cold starts there is a loud clicking or grinding noise for a second or two that does not sound good. On repeat ignitions this does not happen. Any thoughts? Car is Porsche Approved so I want to get this fixed if its an issue or could be causing damage. Thanks!

I’m an original owner of a 2012 S Hybrid with 176k miles. Our car has exhibited the same sound on random starts from the very beginning of when we bought the car. I’ve never been able to duplicate it at the dealer because the car is always warm by then. I’ve been told it’s something to do with the electric motor and the hybrid system clutch aligning. What I can tell you is, after 176k miles - it’s never developed into a problem and the car runs as good as the day it was delivered.
