Have you checked the vacuum pumpon the engine for a leak and filling the vacuum line from the vacuum pump to the charcoal canister with oil??

haven't done all those yet

It is very common. The vacuum pump is located at the rear of bank 1. Pull the small vacuum line off and see if it is wet. If so you will need to replace the vacuum pump and blow out the line. Keep towels around the end because it could have quite a bit of oil in it.

Have your local dealer check this for a recall

or service action. If this is leaking and you are original owner with a decent maintenance history, you might be able to get some assistance from Porsche but you have to ask.
