Looks like a jack crank handle, don't know if it was Porsche issue or not

Check your tool kit to make sure that someone didn't substitute a different jack before you toss that.

that would be the extension used on what appears to be a ford F250 used to lower the spare tire. There is an adapter that looks similar to the socket used for security lug bolts that would go on the end. it gets inserted in the rear bumper of the truck and you crank it to lower or raise the spare tire winched up underneath

Exactly right - that came on my 2000 F-250 and was mounted under the hood on the upper radiator support with the jack crank that mates with the female end and is used with the keyed extension to lower the spare. Used it a few time in the 12+ years I've owned it.
