996 cab 77k 6sp. New IMS@50k.

I bought the car with 73k miles in Sept from a Porsche dealer.  Runs like a clock except when I start it after it’s been running and up to temp. If it’s sits and cools she starts no problem. When I turn the key to crank it I get a very sluggish moan from the motor, it’s like the starter doesn’t have enough electricity to turn the it over or it’s to hot. Sometimes it’s like 2 or 3 revolutions and then the starter disengages. I’ve replaced the battery( it’s was old anyway) and performed a load test to check the alternator and that’s also good. I’ve heard this is not uncommon among the 996. Any idea where to start? I was thinking the starter then work back from there. Maybe a corroded wire/terminal. Again only happens when the motor is at operating temp.
