    911's traditionally are stiffly sprung - they are designed to be high performance sports cars. AWD 911's tend to be stiffer still due to their additional weight.
    Increased wheels circumferences evolved to accommodate larger brakes and resulted in lower tyre profiles. These features greatly improve road holding/handling, but make for a harsher ride.
     
    Personally, I would be reluctant to alter tyre pressures significantly from recommended levels. More often than not, this alters the tyre/road contact patch, reducing adhesion and vehicle performance.
    Fitting a set of winter wheels and tyres may improve ride quality at this time of year.
    But 911's generally are stiff to the detriment or ride comfort because they are intended to be that way.
