Looks like a sprinkler leak in freezing weather.

One year I didn't drain my outside hose water line that runs over the ceiling of my unheated garage. The temp went down to -10* C for a few days and it froze and split the copper line. Amazing... the power of ice.
Luckily the line was shut off and I only got the cars a little wet when it thawed and I turned the water back on.

The Jeep and VW can rot in hell for all i care, but yeah, that Porsche, damn. Hope nothing serious happened to it, like weather stripping damage, etc.
