The B model already launched at the end of 1959 and which had over that time distanced itself greatly from its forbear the VW Beetle, was carried on by Porsche into the model year 1961. The Hardtop Coupé produced by Karmann in Osnabrück from 1961, and now available in the new bodywork version, would provide variety. In contrast to the Cabrio with removable hardtop, the Karmann version with fixed welded roof was not two-coloured but one colour - at least in the case of standard models. Until February 1961 the Roadster was built by Drauz in Heilbronn, then by D'Ieteren in Belgium. The Coupé and Cabrio were produced by Reutter. The circle of delighted Porsche owners rose steadily. In January 1961 the company celebrated the production of the 40,000th Porsche and in one brochure from the day, one of the 40,000th customers was quoted as saying: 'There are many good cars, many good names, but only one Porsche'.
