No easy way on a modern Porsche, see thread here http://911uk.com/viewtopic.php?t=131512
The problem is obviously only 4 jack points, so anything other than jackpoint jackstands, rennstands etc is going to be a bit Heath Robinson.

Two great cant fail business ideas in the UK, jackstands AKA jackpoint jackstands and refurbing Ceramic brakes Thumb

I’ve recently had mine up on the stands and it’s pretty straight forward:

Jack up drivers side rear JP first and this will lift the the entire drivers side. Place 1st Axle stand under front JP, release down and then jack up via rear sub frame on same side to then place Axle stand under rear JP on drivers side.

One side on stands

Next repeat on near side and job done.
nb. Proceed with caution and always make sure steady and secure via the shake test at all times

Very useful Nick - thanks.
Please can you point out /describe rear sub frame jack location (apologies if it's obvious once you are under car - which I haven't done yet - but I want this knowledge to hand). Thanks

If you look under the chassis rails there are four oval (ish) holes, your jacking pads fit in these, then you jack on the pad (think hockey puck with locating pin) you can buy the jacking adaptors on ebay. Search Porsche jacking pads.

I have mine on stands now and used this exact method.

Here you can see the front wheel in the air when jacking on the rear jacking point.

The aluminium ones scratch the paint of the jacking points which I have found to my horror much better of with hard rubber ones that lock:
