125shifter makes a good recommendation but you have to consider that we know more about oil now than Porsche did in 1979. Since these engines (and turbos) run at such high temperatures, synthetic oil that does not burn under the normal driving conditions that you experience in Norway, should be one of your choices.

Everyone on this board has their own personal favorite oil and since no two cars/drivers are the same, that's just fine.

The bottom line is that you should find an oil that is recommended by Porsche/your Porsche mechanic, available and affordable to you, does a decent job of both lubricating and cooling based on the proper viscosity for your driving and climate, and change it often enough to let it do the job right.
