The stock 930 has a ton of turbo lag... and then all hell breaks loose! That is completely normal, just like the puff of smoke upon startup.

The "lag" is what helped feed the "widow maker" reputation. Many inexperienced drivers would get the boost mid-corner, lift off the gas, and then spin into a tree.
