It is also 10cm shorter than the Morgan supplied one and 1.1kg lighter.
Photos of the jack and model number below. I got mine from a group buy on a lotus forum, the guy bought 10 and sold them for $100.00au each. Probably in Europe or the states where Porsche are more common you will get on cheaper.

PS - I made the rubber pad for the top to fit around the Porsche specific molding on the top and provide a flat surface .

That is a nice bit of kit John, a bit disconcerting the news on usage of the supplied jack in 14 years I have never deployed it so have been very lucky by the sound of it.

Used my Morgan jack the other week when I found a tyre had gone flat in the garage.
It was still in its brown paper wrapping, so I suspect it was the first time in use.
Rather like the look of the Porsche alloy one - probably the nearest I might get to owning another Porker! grin2

I ground the shoulders of the Morgan one I.e. the end where the “turning bit” goes so that a 22mm socket fits on. This allows one to use a socket set ratchet with an extension and 22mm socket to turn the jack — works a treat and means the Morgan jack is perfectly usable

Great - thanks John for all that info... and Sir P for finding where it can be bought.

It's just expensive enough to be food for thought! I will probably get one as there's no jack (or spare) with the Aero +8 and a roadside puncture would be a nightmare.
