The remotes stop working after several days, insert the key in the door and unlock it, after which all will be fine again.

Sounds like the door lock is faulty, you are probably going to need a locksmith for this one......

There is a 4 part that connects the key barrel to the locking mechnism that sounds like being broken.
Part can be purchased from ebay and also VW parts counter. To change it is a time consuming, but not very difficult. My car had just that issue when I purchased it from previuos owner...
In your case it soinds like to get the door open before repairs is a challenge... maybe a locksmith or Porsche dealer can help on this.

If I remember right, porsche does not sell this little part separately and the door lock mechanism is rather expensive...
