Occasional blue smoke when engine starts


Vehicle Information: Year: 1999; Total Mileage: 36000;

Approximately 6 weeks ago I purchased a 1999 boxster. About two to three weeks after purchase, I noticed a small amount of light blue smoke was occasionally being emitted from the exhaust when I started up the engine. The smoke is emitted for approximately 3 to 4 seconds immediately after starting. It does not continue while the engine is running. It does not happen every start. It has happened on cold starts and warm starts. I have checked the oil level frequently and the car is not losing oil. Prior to purchase we had the car checked by the local Porsche dealer and it got an excellent report. The car starts, runs and handles beautifully. Is this something to be concerned with and/or should I have it checked out?Thanks
