Griots Garage Clay bar. Wash car with Dawn first to strip the wax. Make soapy water with Dawn to lubricate. Straight lines, no pressure, just let it float over the surface.

Boxters are light cars, decent tires don't develop real flat spots.
Do an oil change, park in your garage, hook up a battery maintainer and don't touch until Spring.

I had a similar 'leak'. Turned out to be the AOL dumping a lot of oil in the inlet which made its way in between engine and transmission. Went away after replacing the AOL and cleaning the inlet.
