I would assume that's it's going to be hard to prove that the shipper damaged your car since you've been tinkering with it. Get it to your home where you can diagnose the issue.

You should never grab a spark plug to check for spark.

Check your ignition coil next. You can search threads on this site on how to check the primary and secondary sides.

If you dizzy pulse is good and the coil is good then you must have a bad CDI. See if you can borrow a CDI from another Porsche owner to put in your car as a check.
CDI's do fail so it might be wise to have a spare. I had a CDI fail on me just a couple of weeks ago. Glad I have a spare.
