According to excerpts of the Business Insider interview, the family had previously received offers of 1,000 Bitcoins for the Porsche when the value of the currency was around $26. If the family have agreed to sell the Porsche for $26,000 at the time, those 1,000 Bitcoins would roughly be worth a minimum of $100,000 at the current trade rates.
However, the buyer of the Porsche had originally purchased his 300 Bitcoins for approximately $4 each. That would make his total investment in the vehicle around $1,200. Sharing the details of the transaction, a member of the family said “All four of us were on the phone, me, father, buyer and surrogate while he sent the coins. We watched the transaction make its way through the network over a span of about 30 minutes , then he signed a bill of sale and passed on the title.”
In addition to listing the car for sale, the family is also attempting to sell a 2011 Harley Davidson Sportster for a price of $9,500. That would be approximately eighty Bitcoins at the current market value.
The package begins with a paint job and continues with a host of aero components, including new front and rear bumpers, side skirts, a rear diffuser and front spoiler, as viewed in these renderings.
The aero parts are available in a polyester-polyurethane-mixture or in carbon fiber as a no-cost option for €7,498 (approx. $10,000 at today’s rates). Completing the new look is a set of 22-inch rims in a matching color from Schmidt Revolution.
In terms of performance, REGULA Exclusive offers an ECU upgrade for the Turbo model that increases output to 597hp (605PS) for €1,698 ($2,300).
The Singer 911: All You Ever Wanted to Know [Chris Harris on Cars]
To some people, mainly Porsche people, this is the most desirable car you could own. Its creators are a bunch of zany, brilliant Porsche-files who have invested their lives in re-imagining the classic Porsche 911 shape for the year 2013. We tour the factory, speak to the team and drive it on road and track.
Like last year’s, I’ve made a compilation of the best exhaust sounds I’ve recorded in the year 2012. I went to many circuits, events and some nice meetings to recording the best car videos. Now I’ve put them together in one video.
Wich sound do you think is the best? Let me know by leaving a comment behind and don’t forget to give a thumb up!
