Looking at the work order I saw that the dealer had topped off the windshield washer fluid.

I used a turkey baster to remove some of the fluid and the problem got less noticeable and is ALMOST now gone, but occasionally can still be seen after energetic driving. I will probably run the washer a few times the next time I wash the car.

Not just a TTS issue, it's been seen on ANY MODEL 991 as well I've seen it on my 981 Cayman.
