Default 996 Turbo smoke from exhaust

I normally drive my 996 Turboseveral times a week. However, recently Igot back from a3 week vacation. When I started upmy car, there was a hugh cloud of smoke from the exhaust. It lasted for about 10 seconds, then gradually disappeared.I once read in an article,this is normal if you don't drive the car often. Is this true?Anyone ever experienced this problem???[]

Yup, normal oil seepage past the valves and into the exhaust. Burns up on startup.
