Speed/ABS sensor wiring help

Hey guys,
I need some urgent help with the speed/ABS sensor wiring. I bought my car about 70% gutted and I'm trying to piece everything together. The rear wheels have both the pad wear and speed/abs sensors, but no wiring to hook them up to. Do they plug straight into a harness or is there a intermediate piece that they plug into? At this point I have no idea where the sensor wire is routed or where it plugs in. I sure hope the previous owner didn't cut these off.

Is that unplugged hole in the image below where the sensor wiring used to run?

Also, there's a 2 pin connector on the 6 speed tranny. Is this a speed sensor as well? I couldn't find any information on it online.

You would probably be better off searching some junkyards for the harness segments you need as they are wildly priced from Porsche (around $1500 just for the main tunnel harness section).

Do all boxsters have abs? I could swear a couple of my past boxsters did not.

What is this 2 pin connector on the tranny? Is it a reverse light switch? Sorry about the size, I'm using my phone.
