Rather funny comment as I drive boxter as a daily driver and I live in north part of Finland where we have snow about 5-month a year. I don't have PSM and I have never been in a skid that I could not correct. Perhaps there is something seriously wrong with your car stability.

Let off the gas in the turns. This car comes with Z rated tires and handles very well my uncle has one. I've never heard anyone complain about its handling in the rain. In Canada I see people driving Boxsters in the snow.

You might need wet traction tires; Michelin Pilot on my Mercedes and they work well. 'Z' tires are great if you are driving at high speed in dry weather. Please let us know if they make a difference.

"Maybe there is something wrong with it,"...
Well there probably is now since it was smashed into a barrier, possibly due to that old standby problem "driver error" :)

"my porsche's tail goes out in the wet..."
Please don't take this the wrong way, but you might benefit from some advanced driving lessons. You also have to understand what kind of car you're driving.
No offense intended, just telling the truth.

I believe all mid engine cars have to be driven carefully in the wet, not just the Boxster. I have seen Lambos and Ferraris spin too.

If you want a real challenge, drive a modified Turbo Carrera rear wheel drive. Driving an Acura mid engine NSX was a cakewalk in comparison.

Agreed, real wheel drive is harder to drive in wet conditions than mid engine vehicles. I had a rear wheel drive Nissan hardbody truck which was the worst vehicle in the wet that I've ever driven.

At extreme high speed my worse handling experience was front wheel drive in an Acura TL. Then I compared it to a rear wheel drive BMW, which was great. I like AWD today.
