engine oil leak


Vehicle Information: Year: 2000; Engine (type, size, modifications): 2.7; Total Mileage: 30000; Transmission: Manual;

I just bought a 2000 Boxster & drove it about 220 miles back to my home. I had my local mechanic put it up on a lift & check it out (he also owns a Boxster). He said everything looked real good, except there was a minor oil leak where the engine main rear seal was, & the rear seal needed replaced. He showed me where this leak was & I saw a drop came out as I stood there. He said to just watch for any oil on the floor, but the leak wasn't bad. Well, I drove the car every day for about a week, but never did notice any oil on the concrete floor where I parked it. Is it possible that this oil leak just went away, even thought I sure doubt that it did?
