Artist and designer Gerry Judah made this impressive sculpture holding three iconic Porsche cars 35-meters-high in the sky, commissioned by Porsche GB to create the sculpture as a celebration of 50 years of the Porsche 911.
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.
