I have searched the PCA site for answers to no avail so here is my question. My Boxster 981 GTS has a very  faint oil and or burning smell after shut down on hot days.  Occurs most noticeably after driving in 90+ ambient temps. Not using oil since last dealer service 6K miles ago, no visible leaks on floor. Car always smells hot after shut down but only a faint bit of oil/burning smell in hot outdoor temps....thoughts? I have been told that the 981 Boxster motor smells hot after shut down and is normal? Thank you for your reply. John
