Unhappy Lumpy after driving fine, won't idle!

Hello everyone!

I've owned my Porsche for around 6 months now, I've driven it long distances and never had this problem, however...

I drove about 40 mile round trip with no problems, parked in the garage and when I came out to my car, it was running incredibly lumpy, when I took my foot of the accelerator pedal, it would die and not hold idle. An engine light has come on and it sounds like a tractor...

Here is the YouTube link to the video: https://youtu.be/yBRr5NlnlSY any ideas would be greatly appreciated in helping me fix my car!

150k miles on the clock, new clutch and DMF recently put on, never had any problems before now!

Sounds fine to me.....if it was a Harley or a pro stock drag car. You should find out what code the car is throwing before running it too much more. On the bright side your exhaust has a nice sound to it.

May be a stuck variocam actuator. How is it at higher revs?
