This phenomenon is as old as the 911 series itself, especially at cold outside temperatures. Its up to the specific geometry of the car and a normal occurrence, it can be reduced to a minimum by having the car aligned up to the perfection.

Sometimes, to get the most out of a suspension system under normal road usage, you need to make it a little cranky backing up at full lock..............  You would be surprised at some of the similar compromise's made on vehicles costing several times more than yours.

If it is at or near lock when it occurs, yes.  You have to remember, the car is never driven at any appreciable speed in that steering configuration, so it only occurs in a very narrow set of parameters and at very low speeds.

But is there any wear or damage that can occur in time ??

 

Not really, as it only happens intermittently, it just feels a bit goofy.

Goofy it is. It seems a bit worse than the older cars. JFP is this not because the front dif in the AWD cars does not allow the front wheels to turn at their own rate in a sharp curve ?

That may contribute to it, but I am not convinced it is the entire reason.

up here where we get frost it is far more noticeable because the wheels get to slip on the pavement - even the cayenne shudders at full lock etc.

 

geometry limitations imho
