Oil Problem

Today was driving my 986s on the highway and had a couple of people flag me down... Not sure why so I pulled over and checked the car only to find oil splattered on my rear driver side wheel(mainly on the inner barrel). The thing is, I see no leaks, no buildup or drops on the driveway. The car consumes oil normally but not this amount in one day.

Anyone knows what this could possibly be? I'll need to take a peak on the top of the engine and raise the car tomorrow. Any help will be appreciated!

Look at the power steering pump and lines which are on the left front of the engine.

Also may be worth changing spark plug tubes. I if they start leaking oil, they leak onto the cats and make a lovely smoke trail.

By cats I mean catalytic converter. Dont ban me.
