Hello, I'm Brandon - Porsche. The IMS issues commonly occur for the 2005 and below models. The 2008 model has a updated designed with a stronger bearing. Basically Porsche failed on this designed and just put a better band-aid on the problem. There are still 2008 with IMS failure however it is not as common as the 2007 below models. Yes, I would recommend buying the extended warranty.
