1999 996 Drop in RPM at idle

Engine

Vehicle Information: Model: 996; Year: 1999; Body Type: Coupe; Total Mileage: 88250;

When the car is idling at a stop light, the revs suddenly drop momentarily as if the engine is about to stall, then they come back up again (this only occurs occasionally). What are the possible causes (big$$$'s or little $'s to fix?)Also, my lease is up in March and I'm considering buying it outright. Do you think this is a wise move? I know that the early 996's were probelmatic, but I've had this vehicle for 5 years now with no major problems.
