Need Help

so i just bought a 2003 Boxster S a few months back. The car has been flawless but recently the drive belt ripped while i was driving and it tore up a hard plastic hose. The issue i am having is i need help identifying what this hose is and what it goes too. i added a picture for reference.

TY

if there was no fluid in it, then its the brake vacuum line.

To me that looks like the powersteering line, but its a bit tough to tell from that angle, so like I said, no fluid in there, vac line.

That is the Fuel Vapor Regeneration Valve tube. Replaced mine in 2014 on my '03 Base Boxster. I found it on Amazon for the best price.
