Blue smoke on idle.

hi again.

If someone bothers i had a small discovery today. I broke the rear brakes the other day so the porsche has just been parked.

Today i wanted to start her and warm it up a bit. I opened the engine lid to just look around when i noticed once in a while a small "puff" of blue smoke coming from left, low, rear side of engine bay. The maby 40 seconds, then a small puff. Hmm, weird huh? I don`t think it smokes usually. Anyone know what this is?

Is it coming out of the exhaust or engine bay? If the engine bay, it sounds like an oil leak dripping on the headers. Look below and see if you see any oil drips (valve cover, chain cover, etc.).
