No, you could have the old design (pre-about 88) shaft, but even those ones did have a threaded hole. You will need to remove it and find out exactly what parts are there. The update, which requires machining the case with a Porsche special tool and replacing all the bits, including lever, shaft, bearing and seals is desribed in the Porsche Parts booklet form the late 90s. Or there is a aftermarket one which doesn't involve machining. You will need to replace the release lever as it's been updated and use the Porsche grease.
Never grease the clutch guide tube (which is also updated and different)if using the Sachs clutch with the "plastic" insert in the release bearing.
All the above depends on the year of your trans.

Or yes, someone could have put the shaft in backwards...not too clever.
