968 Pinion bearing problems

Transmission

Vehicle Information: Model(924/944/968): 968; Year: 1992; Body Type: Coupe; Total Mileage: 30K+;

I am planning on upgrading from a 944 NA in the next year. I am very seriously considering a 968 but have concerns of the much-discussed pinion bearing failing in these cars. Just how common is this problem? Is it possible to determine before purchase if the bearing is a possible failure?I plan on everyday driving and several DEs per year.I really love the 968s but just wondering if this is a real reason to avoid them.
