There are VW jacks on eBay being passed off as Porsche jacks. Don't be fooled. There are important differences. Porsche jacks are a little over 20 inches tall. VW jacks are several inches shorter. The lifting peg on the Porsche jack sits at a 110 degree downward angle on the support tube. The lifting peg on VW jacks sit at a 90 degree angle. Porsche jacks have a rubber bumper secured at the top of the support tube by a very unique metal clip which fits in a groove at the top of the tube. VW jacks do not have this clip and do not come with a rubber bumper. The knuckles and foot of the jacks are virtually identical which makes it easy to get them confused.
