As was already the case in June, the Porsche 911 was also in high demand, especially the Cabriolet versions of the Carrera 4S and Turbo as well as the anniversary model "40 years of 911". In addition, the new 911 Carrera and 911 Carrera S will be launched in North America August 28, 2004. Porsche intends this to make the 911 range even more successful in North America.
In total, the delivery of 1,365 sportscars in July accounted for an increase by nine percent. Of these, 482 units were Boxsters (a decrease by seven percent) and 833 vehicles were 911 – an increase of 20 percent. Of the sporty off-roader Cayenne, 1,461 units were sold (plus two percent).
