Oil overfill/AOS failure????

I'm new to the forum so any information will help me.
I have got a speed yellow 03 986S 60,000ks (from Australia)
We've overfilled the oil accidentally (don't ask long story)
When we take it to redline clouds of smoke pours out of the exhaust and it made a rattling noise but stopped when I pulled over and continued to smoke a little bit, I was around the corner from home so I just kept driving. Smoked kept pouring out but calmed down a little bit.
From doing a little bit of re search my theory is
My AOS was on the way out and when I overfilled the oil instead of the AOS taking the oil fumes out it was just floded with oil and so was the rest of my engine. I'm not sure
Any help will be appreciated guys!
