You have both radiator coolant hoses and air conditioning hoses behind the front bumper. To get at them, you need to take the front bumper cover and associated panels off...............

Post some sharper pix from further back. It's hard to see the spacial size of the hoses that close up.

One thing is for sure. Porsche doesn't put hoses on their cars that are not important. Every wire and hose on your car is there to do something, and it's probably important enough to throw a CE light or overheat your car if not plugged into something.

You do probably have a radiator condensation hose though, and this may be a drip hose, but it's hard to tell with the single out of focus pic you posted.
