OBD Port

I can't find the OBD computer port on my 2003 Boxster S.
I have seen photos of where it is supposed to be but I can't find it.
Any clues ?

On Board Computer.

Hello Boatin - this past summer I activated my OBC - it is located in the rear trunk. I did not see a port anywhere.

It is adjacent to the steering column under the dash on a US car, beneath the passenger’s side on a UK car.

Thanks JFP,
Mine of course is RHD being in Australia and there it was as large as life. Pretty hard to miss really.
Much appreciated.

In an 03 the OBC is activated through the cluster. There is no rear ecu part. Just need a Durametric Enthusiast version to turn on the OBC.

He asked about the OBD port that is used for diagnostics, not the OBC system...............
