oil fumes when running hard

One of the Boxsters I have here really allows a lot of oil fumes to enter the cabin when run hard. Anyone else have this problem?


This is just when the car car is run hard. I assume it is because the exhaust actually gets hot enough to burn the oil that normally does not get burned off during normal driving.

Check the cam covers. When they leak, which is very common, it can drip oil onto the exhaust and burn off. The harder you drive, the more drip.
