No, that's not the case. The bolt snapped off deeper so what you are seeing is the thread inside the head. The piece that's left stuck is below the surface.

In all honesty, I think a lot of it had to do with the temperature. I've not driven the car for an entire week and it's been below freezing in Chicago.

The car is going to a shop on Tuesday and the work will be done by a master Porsche mechanic with 30+ years of experience. This should be a walk in the park for him.
