944 S2 3.0 start problem


this is my first post, so sorry if something is wrong.
Just bought my first Porsche in USA and shipped it back home to Lithuania (North Europe).
Its 944 S2, 3.0 engine, cabriolet, 1990. And of course - red

It was working fine. Drove with it around 700miles. And now I started having issues with starting a car.
Please see video, of what happens when trying to start a car:

First thought was that its battery fault. But its not. I changed battery to new one.
Then I tried other DME relay. Didn't help...
Then removed starter and brought it to shop that specializes in starter repairs. They replaced starters solenoid and cleaned gear shaft. There were some dirt, which prevented gear from sliding freely back and forth. Installed started back in the car, but issue was still there. Nothing changed.

Do you guy have any thoughts what it could be? What next I should look into?

ps. here is a link to a picture of my new baby )
