Rear trunk Emergency Release Cable??

I an recent owner of a 2000 Porshe Boxster that I love. My question concerns an Emergency Rear Trunk release cable and whether I have one.

IF I have a solenoid operated rear trunk releast ( it is broken ) and the normal door sill release cable ( it is broken ) do I still have an Emergency Release Cable ?

I tried to find by taking off the driver rear tire and tire well ...I looked all over and could not locate . I feared that maybe with having the solenoid that maybe I do not have an emergency release cable. I cant figure our what the heck I am going to do if I don't . I need top off the oil

Please help if you have any insight and THANK you so much for your help !!

Thanks for your reply. Nothing was said either way about it in the Owners Manual that is why I was asking if anyone knew. I searched the board , (and might have missed seeing the question asked before), but did not see my question answered
