I see many pictures where fellow 997/996 owners have their cars up on four jack stands. There seems to be one in front of each rear wheel and one behind each front wheel. Are there central jacking points for each axle so you can get the stands under there? Where are all the jacking spots on a 997?

The jack points for a 997 are just like the 996.

To put the car up on 4 jack stands:

1. lift the car on one side front the back jack point until the front of the car is high enough to put the 1st jack stand under the front jack point.

2. Do the same for the other side. Now the front of the car is up on the stands.

3. Position your lifting jack on the centerline of the engine to the rear of the oil sump cover (Not touching the sump cover).



Lift up the rear of the car high enough to place the 2 remaining jack stands under the rear jack points.

Lowering the car is the reverse of the above.

And No, you will not damage the engine or car by lifting it this way. Just make sure you don't lift on the Oil Sump cover.
