    The position (under front/right side of car) suggests it could just be condensation from the air-conditioning. However, this would be pure water so should not be orange, should not smell, or be sticky.

    Brake fluid?

    I think your front right water intercooler leaks. this is a common problem with the 996 911 turbo and I think as well with the 4s. The cooling water from the engine goes through hoses to the front and there through aluminum coolers back to the engine.
    The problem now is, when you are driving every day, that not much is coming out when the car just stands still between eacht drive for a night or some 24 hours. The cooler leaks normaly not much and only when the water gets hot and the system is under pressure, normally while driving. But while driving the vans blow the leaking, dropping water anyways away in front. You won't ever see any thing or smell.
    If my car stays for some days, some drops of cooling liquid which is a bit sticky indeed, is laying under the right front of my car. And I'm loosing around a liter of cooling liquide per month. - I'm under warranty, and my cooling system gets fixed, till then I'm having an eye on the cooling liquid and refill a bit if it's needed.

    Check your coolant expansion tank, the level may be creaping low if you have a leak.

    Some newer cars have pink orange or purple antifreeze, so like said i prosume it's this, with it being at the front, obviously the water cooler..

    Brake fluid is golden yellow and has a standard distinctive smell.

    Power steering fluid or chf 11s is a greenish colour, smells the same as auto trans fluid which is red.

    Gear or diff oil smells of strong sulphur, and is yellow.
