I experienced this once on a 911 and it was a broken head stud and the head gasket was blown. That year of 911 engine does use a head gasket. Have you looked at the engine underneath and been able to see any definitive dark areas where the heads meet the cylinders? If a stud is broken, it is typically the exhaust or lower stud.

later air cooled engines utilized an "interference fit" head to cylinder contact surface and did not have hed gaskets. But in mid year 1991, the 964 started using head gaskets again because the compression ratios were getting so high that problems were starting to occur.
