The place to learn this technique is AUTOCROSS. You don't want your first experience with lift-throttle oversteer to be on a big track at speed: you will lose it and not get it back until concrete meets rear license panel.

A well-designed autocross course will include sections where the car will oversteer, understeer, and actually encourage you to lift to rotate the car. You can also practice "both feet in" spin recoveries multiple times. I highly recommend that and any skidpad time you can beg, borrow or steal as a way to explore the unique handling of the 911.

I have yet to experience power oversteer, with only 155 HP it's tough to do unless you are in the rain (or driving on the grass as I seem to do lots).
