A friend of mine bought a 964 that was totaled by the insurance company. Sometime when in storage, mice invaded the heater system all the way to the front climate control box system behind the fuel tank.
This cleanup, and attempts to get rid of the odor went on for awhile. The complete heat system was taken out, steam cleaned with bleach and water spray. This included the heat tubes that go through the rockers. The car was also sent to the detail shop to do the carpet etc.
The smell went away a little more with each process. What helped too, after all was done was to put pie tins full of baking soda under the seats for a few days. Works for refrigerator odor..also helped the car.

After this was all over, I happened to hear about precautions associated with mice droppings and dust from the waste. Before you go about cleaning, read up on Google about "Hantavirus"

Hopefully, your car has not been taken over by critters, but if it is mouse related, the info above may be helpful.
