Default uhh.... is something missing?

I have been meaning to ask this, but directly to the left of my hood-pop lever under the dash is an opening, and the female part of a big electrical connection. Its about 3 inches by 1 inch, and it looks as if something is definently supposed to go there....what is it? can someone else take a look? is this just an optional factory feature they left out?

Used by the mechanic to plug in a scanner to read codes about engine condition.

That is the OBD 2 port for the computer, there is a cover that snaps over it to help hide it.
