944 Turbo Overheating

Stoney Creek, 

I have very low mileage 61,143 kms (37,992 miles) on my 1987 944 Turbo. I only drive it on warm sunny days. I just dropped off my car for winter storage. I drove a distance of about 35 kms at 100 km/hr. When I stopped the car the engine was extremely hot. You coould feel and smell the heat. The temp gauge was normal. The fan was running and shut off about 4-5 minutes later.. 

Do I have a bad thermostat? I understand 944 Turbos have 2 thermostats.

Should I have them replaced? If so, now or can I wait until the spring?
