If your car has a front AC condenser and fan Porsche never fused that fan. I guess the AC wiring was an after thought.
In hot climates where people run the AC most of the time those fan motors are known for seizing up after a while because the electric motors inside them are nothing great and very few people take them apart to clean and oil the armature bushings in the motors.
Making things worse that fan is right next to the gas tank so when it burns out and melts down it's plastic blower fan casing they can light the gas tank and burn down the car.

Anyway, it's easy to put an inline blade fuse in the power wire going to the fan. Radioshack has them.
I don't know where the other factory red wires on the battery positive terminal go. You could trace them or look at a wiring diagram if they are original. Sometimes someone posts a jpeg of the wiring diagram but you have to find one for the year of your car to have everything.

The interior lights, glove box, and front trunk lights can be a steady drain on the battery because they are hot all the time and the little button switches in the door jams ground them to turn them on when you open the door.
The glove box light and front trunk light are on a shared circuit and work the same way off their button switches.
