05 Carrera 50k miles, all services performed. IMS bearing failed yesterday. What is my recourse with pore she or other options ? Very angry at the moment

Do some research to see if your VIN falls in the group covered under the class action suit. I'm afraid that even if it does and your not the original owner or were covered under Porsche's extended warranty program all you'll see is 25% of the C.A. payment. Look into the 'fixes' offered by LN Engineering, EPS, etc etc. Of course you'll need to determine if the bearing debris migrated throughout the motor which normally means a complete tear down & inspection. Hopefully you have a competent independent Porsche mechanic for this work.

Thanks for the thoughts. Since I did not purchase the car new, I am told Porsche will only cover 25% of the replacement cost for the engine.

Car was never tracked, it was maintained religiously by a local Porsche dealer, and was generally "babied" for the seven years of my ownership. If fact, the car had its annual service done at the dealership two weeks before the incident. I was driving to work at about 40 mph- terrible grinding sound starting coming from engine bay- car stalled, "check engine visit workshop" message displayed, oil trail on road behind car and remaining oil was dumping on shoulder of road as I pulled to side

Please be warned and take action before you are in my position- in need of a $25,000 replacement engine for which Porsche will contribute 25%

I feel the pain. I sold my pristine 2005 997S (early VIN) a year ago today that I too had for 7 years. I was getting worried about IMS failures even though I religiously took care of it. I no longer have the ' IMS Cloud' overhead since I bought a shiny new 981S.
