You know Michael, I had the EXACT same experience.  I drove a 348 and was
wholly unimpressed.  A 2.2 bar 5000 TQ feels faster.  An M3 (don't go there
Gary  :-)  ) feels faster.  The car is something of a shame.  Now the 355,
well, that is a car...  Next time try to get a ride (read: drive) in a 993tt
awd.  I think on edge the 355 pales in comparison, esp. on a dirt road.  Of
course, I'm now a U/O/U convert, as opposed to O/O/O...  :-)

Sounds like you had a fun trip.
