It eventually wins and the car goes "straight" that way -- which is a correction in the other direction.

This continues on -- alternating which side "wins" and thus which way the car points at any given time.

I think Boxster's typically have something like -1 degree tow (tow in) and this keeps them stable as the geometry moves around.

But if you had any significant tow out on both sides, I can see how you would get this oscillating/ hunting feeling.
