986 manufactured in Germany vs. Finland?

Is there any quality difference between the boxsters built in Germany and the ones in Finland? Was it just final assembly in Finland or were the motors built there too?

Engines were still built in Germany, but I believe - likely incorrectly - the bodies were stamped there for assembly. I've heard over the years (anecdotally, of course) that the cars built in Uusikaupunki were a bit better in overall quality compared to what came from Stuttgart.
