Water from Tailpipe

After a hard 90 minute run, garaged my '02 Boxster S for an hour or so, then backed it out to take a short run. Saw when I returned that I had left a trail of water when backing out and pulling out. Seemed to be just water - no il or odor. Not a few drops, it was a decent trail, but not cups full either. For sure from tailpipe - was centered exactly as horizontal mid of car. Evening in mid 50s F temp. Condensation in exhaust system from previous run? More ominous portent? Appreciate yr conclusions.

Nothing to be concerned about; after all, the M96 is not capable of making water, so it is condensation. If it were coolant, it would be colored and smell of glycol….
