I think it's coming from a hole in the oil pan gasket. When I drive quickly, the oil drips and runs back and ends up on the catalytic converters or other hot exhaust equipment, and burns, causing the smoking from the front/middle of the car. Best thing would be to get under a lift or something and try to see it.
