Transmission Rattle?

Hi All, 
My cars just developed a rattle. I'm hoping someone could give an opinion what what the cause may be. 
It's underneath, and feels like it's transmission related. When pressing the clutch the rattle stops. I've posted a clip on Dropbox which should give an idea on whats happening.
Any ideas?

    From your description I suggest it might be wear in the clutch release bearing mechanism.  I have no experience of this on a Porsche, but it is worth a good poke around underneath to see if anything associated with the clutch slave cylinder etc. is adrift.

    Thanks John - others have said something similar. I've got it booked in to the garage so hopefully its nothing more than this.

    Also no expert but could be the clutch release bearing or the dual mass .
    Best get it checked out by an experienced mechanic.
    Plenty of Good Porsche independent garages.
    Good luck.

    Thanks. It’s booked into my Indy next week.
    the cars also started giving blue smoke to which looks like the AOS. Possibly related, not sure.
