SMOKING MORE THAN USUAL FROM THE EXHAUST
2008 Porsche Boxster
January, 31, 2012 AT 12:16 PM
My 08 Porsche Boxster - It smells of a strong burning. Not sure how else I can describe it. Any ideas? It smells as either petrol or oil burning, but the smoking is embarrassing. In the cold, I can't see out of the rear window when I start the car.

These cars have a problem with the PCV system of the engine, though it is nothing like the typical system.
Of If the smoke is grey ( bluish) it is oil being burnt in the cylinders and you mentioned it is more prominent when starting from cold, that usually is due to oil getting past the valve seals.
Being a rather new vehicle, the vehicle should still be within warranty. Get the dealer to have a look at it.
