Clutches are hit and miss on these cars.

My 99' had one replaced at 20k because of a smelly odor coming from the clutch non-stop. The slip from the dealership said it had a blue fungus developing on it.

My 01' S had to have it replaced at 50k.

I've seen some folks put over 100k+ though. My Dad's old 90' Jetta had 240k on the original clutch.....I dream of that on a Boxster.
