1985/2 944 Hard Starting

Since i bought the car, about a year ago, the car has been sporadically hard to start. Most of the time it takes about 7 seconds to start (temperature has no effect), but sometimes will take up to 15 seconds of continuous cranking, and rarely it starts right away. I have tested the injectors, the starter, the spark, the coil, basically every thing except the fuel pump. I can hear the pump prime when i turn the key "on" before I try to start it, and after the car starts it runs great. Other than this problem the car mechanically perfect and has been babied its whole life. I'm wondering if this is a common problem for these cars, or if i'm just screwed.
