Fronk cable release no go!

What to do. My battery died and I can't open the hood. I tried the battery jump to the fuse box trick with no success. I removed the front tire and wheel well covers to reach the cable release. Once I got a hold of the cable, it won't budge. I pulled so hard I thought I would cut my fingers off. Anybody have an idea to open the hood?

Can the Porsche dealer open the hood? HELP

Update: AAA towing came out, but they wouldn't tow without the tow hook. Guess where the car's tow hook is located? IN THE TRUNK!!!

Had to visit the dealer and BUY another tow hook so I can tow the car....Not Happy.
