Lower Centre Console Connector

Does anyone have or know how to secure the mating, 4 round pin connector pictured here right above the A/B sensor? It would be good if there were still leads in as well. I believe this is for the old mobile phone option. It is the one just sticking through the triangle

Yep, that looks like the plug for connecting the Porsche phone option back in the day.
I believe all early Boxsters had that plug installed at the factory so if a phone was ordered as an option the wiring was already in the car.
It is a great source of switched power for any accessories you add that might need power when the ignition is turned on.

Yes that is it. I would like a used one with leads still it so that I can bring switched power to where it's needed

When I put a nitrous system in I used those wires for the controller. Just cut that connector off and crimp on whatever connector type you want. Why keep the legacy connector?

Pin 1 - Term 30 (B+ Hot all times) - Red/Grn
Pin 2 - Term 15 (B+ Switched) - Grn/Blk
Pin 3 - Telephone Mute - Yel/Blk (wired to amp I15 and radio A3)
Pin 4 - Term 31 (Gnd) - Brn

Thanks man! Yes you are quite correct it would be best to cut off and go new but as it happens I'm an electrical nincompoop so I was trying to make it simple for myself I'm sad to say I don't know how to or have the tools to wire up connecters and pins but will learn and do. Yes I wanted a whole accessory harness to just snap in. Not sure what use pin three gave you?

Nitrous???? Please create a whole new thread..... pictures!! At least show us the GO switch. Did you have to change engine internals?

I used the nitrous system to get some more power from a 2.5L engine that was already on it's way out. The plan was to keep putting bigger jets in until mayhem. In reality the engine was dumping it's coolant too fast. I had to let it cool for about 30 minutes between runs before I could refill it. Nobody wanted a big puddle of oil and coolant on the dragstrip at 9:00 pm, so we never got to see the full potential. The system did work well: https://www.nitrousexpress.com/proton-fly-by-wire-nitrous-system-w-10lb-bottle-20422.asp
