"The removal of the parallel port was probably partly because no official add-on had ever been released for it, and partly because it was being used to connect cheat cartridges that could be used to defeat the regional lockouts and copy protection." from here I guess at the time Sony had some ides of using it for expansion and different controllers but later abandoned the plan. Hope this helps...

No, that's the Serial Port you're talking about. Serial Port was available on every PS1-model, but Paraller Port (the big one) was removed from SCPH-9xxx series onwards.
