Either the expansion tank is just cracked or there is a head gasket problem.

when water temperature rises it's an indication off a head gasket busy blowing or already blown.this would blow water into the oil. make sure you don't have the engine overheating. this could cause a number off other headaches. have the car towed to a good mechanic. do not use the agents because they will make you hate porsche. I take take it it has the flat six engine and will use two head gaskets on each side. I would order this and buy it myself. you will save money. give it to the mechanic who only does the labour. people think that when you drive a porsche there is money to be wasted. take care

Porsche overheating & coolant loss through expansion tank

Check this out. Had the same problem. Easy fix. When you pull up at the lights does it blow steam everywhere as your water drips onto the exhaust. Next step is the water gets onto the coils engine light comes on and it mis fires!! Anyway solution. As it is doing it when you look at the bottom of the expansion tank you will see the water dripping. The tanks had a weakness and have I believe now been modified. Take it off and put your fingers over two of the three pipe holes, then blow down the other. Wifes often good at this!!! You will here a hissing as the tank has a pin hole in. It comes out fast as the pressure builds. To remove the tank undo the air box (1 x 10mm bolt and the screw on the large jubilee clip) Then undo the two petrol pipe bolts ensure your engine is cold. You should need a seventeen mm spanner. Then just under the engine lid you will see a 10mm nut which you need to undo. The box then slide forward toward the middle of the car and then back in a fastion!!! Give it a good blow you will see it. If you really must get in the bath with it and do it under the water.
Now get another and replace it.
Good luck everyone..... j
