Torque steer

Accelerating hard causes my 1988 - 930 to want to pull to the left. Lifting (like between shifts) makes it yank hard to the right. Iím told this is called torque steer. But Iím not sure that there isnít something else going on here or that maybe I have a suspension problem. Or possibly something on my suspension needs to be adjusted. The problem is so pronounced that I have to anticipate what is coming and actually turn the wheel slightly to compensate. My car has 356 RWHP - 411 torque, which I wouldnít think would be enough hp to cause this sort of issue. Does anyone else experience this with their 930?
