1990 964 Intermittent starting problem

Electrical and Electronic

Vehicle Information: Model: 964; Year: 1990; Body Type: Coupe; Total Mileage: 75050;

The car will intermittently not start. When the key is turned to start,it just goes "duunk" acting as if the starter is frozen. It may start 20 or 30 times with no problem, then for no apparent reason, it doesn't start. I brought it to my mechanic and he installed a new starter, which unfortunately didn't solve the problem. He is stumped. The battery and electrical system checked out fine. If it is the flywheel, wouldn't the starter "whirr" when turning the key? Thanks for your help. Tom
