Its an opposing 6 cylinder configuration, water cooled motor. Not a 4, and certainly not a V6
If memory serves, I think the 98-01 suffered from a leaking rear main seal, but other than that, one of the most competent roadsters on 4 wheels. I would stay away from 98-00 models, due to other documented issues, but in 01 the motor got a bit of a bump in hp and after you address the main seal, you will have a very competent roadster. This is despite the boxster being coined as a chick's car.
