A turbo timer would do this, but would keep the engine running - a scavange pump would ensure the oil don't sit in the turbo. But I don't think I've seen anyone do exactly what you've suggested, but it's similar to what I'm doing with my Boxster. The m96 engines in the water-cooled Porsches suffer from heat soak pretty bad (they don't cool off when shut off), and coupled with a low temp thermostat, I'm putting a supplemental 80L/min electric pump with it's own computer (like a turbo timer), designed to operate the fans and pump until coolant reaches a pre-determined temperature (in my case, when the thermostat closes).
