The hose probably came off the tank, happened to me a couple years back. There is no clamp holding it on. When u push it back on, throw a zip tie on so it doesn't happen again.

Is that where the pump is because there is only a leak when the pump is activated, and the headlight washers work fine

Happened to me too... I put a small worm drive hose clamp on so the hose wouldn't pop off the fitting.
Easy to get at after pulling the front tire and rolling back the rear section of the fender liner.

Right, it will only leak when pump is activated. It is simple and u will understand when u get in there. At the same time, u will be pissed that Porsche didn't clamp it from the beginning.
