Question about Cars & Trucks
The clicking noise is just the car cooling down and the metal components in the exhaust expanding and contracting. nothing to worry about. And it does look like there is a reasonably bad oil leak. Make sure there is enough oil in the engine before driving it and take it to get a seal or gasket replaced to stop it.

If you go to an auto parts store, they can probably read the code for you. Once you have the code, do an online search for Porsche ODBII codes, and you can findout what the issue is. The problem can be one of many different things, and there is no way to diagnose it without knowing which code activated the light. You also don't state mileage, if there is any rough idling, etc.

Most possible oil leaks from valve cover rubber oil seal. Remove valve cover, inspect , clean surfaces, and replace with new rubber oil seal .

SOURCE: the top of my 1999
The convertible top on my 1998 boxster would not work either, nor would the windows go down. If you have checked the fuse and it is fine, then it may be what I had experienced which is the switch located in the center console directly under the hand brake. There is a white plastic switch with a plunger on it that is engaged by the handbrake being raised. When the handbrake is engaged it activates the switch which then allows the convertible top to be activated. It's a $5.00 part, (I know, I couldn't believe it either) from the porsche dealer, and a very easy to do yourself job, it took me 10 minutes from start to finish. It would be worth spending the $5 and replacing it anyway, at least you could rule it out if it stll does not work you only spent $5 rather thank $140 an hour labor rate at dealer. Pop the side plastic panel under the hand brake on the drivers side and you will see the white plastic switch. Good luck.

your valve cover gasket may have blown. This can happen if you overfill above the required dipstick level. take off the valve cover and check the gasket. Better to be under the level than over. The oil preassure will try to blow from where ever there is a weak gasket.
