What is this connector please?

While installing a Double Din radio in my 2000 Boxster, I discovered an unused 4 pin connector just laying there between the shifter and the lowest bay in the radio stack. I would like to implement it if possible but I can't find it on any of the schematics. Here are the colors:
Pin 1 - Brown
Pin 2 - Yellow / Black
Pin 3 - Green / Black
Pin 4 - Red / Green

I have attached a pic...any help is appreciated.

It is a most useful plug, switched 12v, unswitched 12v, and ground. I'm using the switched 12v for my oil temp and pressure gauges.

Also if you don't want to splice into the plug directly, you can purchase the other side , PN: 5001.524-276 from Becker Audio.

Steve, as a matter of interest, what is the running oil temperature & pressure for the M96 engine @ (say) 4000 rpm hot?
