So why the low miles?  Why didn't you drive it more?

First off, it's not actually mine, it's my father's. He listed it recently on Craiglist, along with the Harley, and asked me to list them both on the bitcoin forums for him. He's really excited about the prospect of selling for BTC and I hope someone here picks them up.

Back to your question. My Father is notorious for buying nice cars and never driving them. I'm guessing he's scared to get any scratches on the vehicle and just enjoys looking at the car and calling it his own... He lives in downtown Austin so he doesn't need to drive around much anyways. I tease him because he's basically keeping his vehicles in great shape so the next buyer can get a good deal on a barely used sports car.
Yeah, seems like it!  I appreciate that he's willing to sell for BTC, even if I can't buy it myself.  Smiley

First Porsche bought with internet hacker currency would make nice news. I'm sure it would make a line in quite a few articles. Press loves shit like this.

I have thought about that, but I'll wait for better bitcoin price.
And I have changed my mind for 911 version.
I'll have to wait a long time due to:
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=125394.0


Why did you take Cayman, is it price or what?
I'm going to take test drive next week Cayman and 911, but I Have read that 911 is stronger and Cayman is easier to drive with?

Cayman advantage is that you have an excuse not to take mother-in-law because of lack of backseat.

I'm fairly certain my mother-in-law would never want to ride with me again after taking a ride in a Cayman with me.  Cheesy

I've created a bitpay merchant account and added a pay now button. I know they charge 1%, but I think it's the safest bet given that the price of bitcoin can fluctuate so much in one day. You are NOT expected to pay before seeing the car in person. I've added the pay now button for those who may believe that bitcoin value is about to drop significantly.

It seemed like a good idea at the time.

Two weeks ago a guy on r/Bitcoin bragged about having bought a Cayman-s for Bitcoins, so this is not the first one!

It was a RH drive in the UK or Eire, so not the same car. Paied 9,600 btc if i remember right (had more mileage).

Bummer, thought this was the first supercar sale for bitcoins. I just searched /r/bitcoin and can't find any references to the word porsche or cayman, are you sure that's the right subreddit? Sounds like he overpayed quite a bit.

There's a 2004 mitsubishi evo that looks like it's been worn in pretty well for 1400, and a BMW 530D for 3000 BTC on bitmit. I'm not charging a bitcoin convenience fee, you are paying the exact same amount that I would take in cash.

So who wants to buy the first reasonably priced supercar, with low mileage, and upgrades, for bitcoin?

Ah, that's an old boxter, no supercar in my opinion. All is well on first supercar sold for bitcoins, as long as one of you guys puts up some coin before a local craigslister does. I'm also assuming he paid $9,000 fiat, unless he really got ripped off ($150,000+ USD for an early '00s boxter?)

It is very obvious if you read the thread of comments.  One person says "Yeah, that looks like an (very) early 00s-era Boxter (non-S). It's probably only worth ~$12,000.", to which he responds "spot on chief, I got it for 9288, my dad is a good haggler."

So, yeah, $9,288 USD.  Nice car though, I'd drive it!

Good idea though, I've posted a link to this thread on the bitcoin subreddit. Hopefully someone with enough coins in reserve with a yearning for an awesome car will stop by. Help me out and give it an upvote fellas!

I suppose it depends on your definition of supercar. I believe the performance upgrades and condition put it at that level, but high end exotic also works. Semantics aside, this is a great sports car at an excellent price.
