Thanks
... located just behind the front wheels and just ahead of the rears about 4" from the edge of the skits.
If you get on your knees you will clearly see them. They are reinforced points that can support the weight of the car.
Do not put your jack on any other point on the body since the weight will crush the panel.

BTW, here's your Owner's Manual:

The information on lifting the car is on pages 258 and 259 of the manual.

Happy Boxstering,
Pedro
