I have already 8 drives hooked up the the P800 RAID controller internally. I would like to attach 8 more SATA drives externally. I looked in the documentation but the only thing mentioned for the external ports is HP SAS to Mini Cables with different length options.

The question is:

Do I have to get the HP 50 or 60 Modular Smart Array in order to hook up the hard drives to the external ports?

Certainly you need it to be one of the HP disk enclosures yes but the P800 supports the MSA 50, 60 & 70.
