Advice for buying a 2000 boxster

I am considering buying a 2000 2.7 litre Boxster with 52k miles. The car was professionally inspected and it was reported that there was clutch judder in first gear on pull off but otherwise the clutch did not slip. Also there appeared to be a noise from the exhaust like there was a loose baffle but went away on warm up. Should I be concerned?

Clutch shudder wont go away, so budget money for that repair/replacement (or use it to bargain $$ off the price of the car). IIRC clutch is $500 in parts, likely another $500-1000 for labor (6 hour job?)
