Wanted to check in to see if anyone found the source of this whistle.
The noise went away 4 months ago by Miracle. The only changes was the front fender blinker I replaced for the European version.
i know this is weird. You can try to put some painter tape on it and see if it does make différence. That will be very interesting. Please keep us posted.

It might be worth checking to see if your windows are correctly 'calibrated'.
Press the window switch and hold it down for 10+ seconds after it has gone all the way down. Then to the same in the upward direction. Repeat 3 or 4 times.
This resets the sensors that detect where the window is at rest. If it's not correctly set, after you get in the car the window will position itself below the rubber seal, leaving a gap the wind can get in.

This procedure was explained to me by a Porsche Assist technician after the 12v battery died.

Page 278 of the manual (UK spec):

Storing the end position of side windows
The end positions of the side windows will be lost if the 12 V power supply fails. One-touch operation of the side windows is disabled.
Perform these steps for all side windows:
1. Close side the window completely once by pulling the rocker switch to the second setting.
2. When the side window is completely closed, briefly pull the rocker switch to the second setting
again.
3. Completely open the side window once by pressing the rocker switch.

Yes! To my surprise, the service dept was able to identify the issue and resolve it when I brought it in for the software update. It turns out, it was something with the hood, which really surprised me. I assumed it was the mirror. I’ll attach the work order so you can share the details with your service team.

Regarding whistle noise. I experience that when its raining there is no whistle noise at all, no matter what the speed is, anyone with the same experience ? It means that its something that gets filled up with a small amount of water that leads to noise is not there, strange, but its physics, so it must be something on the outer side of the car.
