It picks up air for all vents from the passenger side footwell if im not mistaken, also if im not mistaken that is close the 'ash tray' area in these trucks, if you have a cigarette sitting in the ashtray smoldering that could be what you are seeing being pulled threw and blown back out, or maybe you dropped a cigarette and its just smoldering near there . . .

SOURCE: 2001 porsche boxter engine running hot

My 2000 Boxster developed a pin hole leak in the coolant reserve tank in the rear trunk. The trunk floor is actually raised, which allowed the coolant to go unnoticed, since the carpet never got wet. I would pull back the carpet on the side and see if there is coolant in the trunk area. If so, the plastic reserve tank will run you about $300 for the part. It is a bit of a pain to replace, but something the average home mechanic can do. Only real hassle was the hose clamps in the engine bay were installed before the engine, hence the engine was in the way of the screw head.

It could be the fluid (you need to gain access to the engine below the convertible top cover), or it could be your power steering pump going bad.
