Question Exhaust smoke

I have a 2002 Boxster, if I leave it parked in my garage for a few days and then start it up... there's more than usual smoke that comes out of the exhaust. When I use it often there's no extra smoke. is this normal?

Normal on a horizontal engine. Oil seeps past the valves into the combustion chamber then burns off on start up.
