Engine Winding Noise???

I went and looked at a tiptronic 99 Boxster locally for sale.In each gear I could hear an engine winding noise.It got louder as I went faster.Is that sort of noise a normal engine noise for the 99 engine or does it mean their is a problem?I didn't think it was very noticable and assumed it was just a regular engine noise as the engine is right behind me but my father found it more noticable.We test drove a newer one before and didn't remember that sort of noise but I know they changed then engine after 99.So,what does everyone think?
