Cruising is cool, I love to drive my Porsche nowhere in particular on a regular basis!
Perhaps you were driving to fast in the wet when you booted it.
I would say to any new 911 driver find a quiet large car park/ air strip/Track and find the limits and know what to do when it gets hairy.
I also love to give my 911 a real drive and to date I have had some great powerslides and still have my full no claims bonus. Tyre costs have been kept secret from the Mrs though.
Suggest you stay in garage and polish.

I really love to drive my 1990 Carrera 4 Cabiolet It holds the road well if you install the right tires. Had it sold, but the guy backed out, in the mean time I bought a 2001 Carrera Cab and now much to my suprize now I have two. I call it my collection. I get a lot more looks from the old one. Totally two different automobiles, both are true sports cars. Now I love them both can't get my self to sell one.

I love my 90 carrera 4 with all my heart! this vehicle stops on a dime and responds like no other vehicle I have ever owned! I'm 45 and wish I had gotten her a long time ago.

An understanding of "trail braking" helps hustle these cars through bends at high speeds. Losing it in the wet says more about the driver than the car. 4-wheel drive does not trump ignorance. It helps get it moving on a slippery surface and through the twisties in the dry.
The 911 is not a perfect car, but it has a following of people who appreciate all of its many qualities. Those who criticise the handling of the 911 are either lacking in skill, or likely not a Porsche 911 owner. It really is that simple.
