How much smoke? If it does not make it more than 1-2 feet from the tailpipe before disappearing then it is likely justwater vapor condensing against the cold air and isnothing to be concearned about.

However if it is actual smokeit will form more of a cloud that is usually visiblewhen looking out the back window from inside the car.Smoke out the tailpipeis NOT normal. It is usually caused by oil leaking pastworn turbo bearings while the car sits (off). When you start the car the collected oil gets blown through the engine and burns causing the telltale "blue oil smoke." If this is the case it is likely that your turbo is in need of a rebuild.
