Both sold to Kris Singh. Anyone know what the final price was for each?
$450k roadster & $555k coupe
Guys, just as an FYI, over my ~30 year career as a VC/PE investor, I've accumulated some interesting unsolicited business plans. One of them was from Gerald Weigart, circa 1992. I just ran across it along with bunch of other interesting literature, and sent it all off to the AACA library, figuring that was the only entity that would be interested in it. Sort of an interesting piece of history. The business plan came with a VCR video and a Hotwheels car.
Can you elaborate?
Weigart was raising money for Vector, and this was the business plan with history, projections, product roadmap etc. Kind of arcane but an interesting behind the scenes peek at Weigart's vision for the company. I hope the AACA library will archive it and make it available; it's a pretty small universe of folks who'd be interested!
For sure. I'd be interested in seeing it!

Congratulations to ol' Jer for selling his leftover prototypes in Arizona at the RM auction. Even if he didn't make a million selling the cars when they were new, he makes a million selling two (slightly) used ones. I am confused by the prices announced, was it $650,000 for the coupe with the premiums? And how much for the roadster with the premiums? Who is the buyer,Mr, Singh, an entraprenurial pioneer or major collector? Is the next Vector all electric? Seems to be a great way to avoid the smog tests and the Teslas prove powertain isn't that important to early adopters. I wish Amazon would just take some small change out of their pocket and fund it...and it woiuld give Jeff Bezos a one-up on his rival Elon Musk whose electric sports car is still a pipe dream (well, one was delivered, to outer space...)
Just drove a W8!
I have known Jerry since 1970 when his ex-girlfriend in Bad Axe, MI said I should look him uo when I reach the Coast. I always remember at some auto shows, he would dress in a jet pilot's flight suit and have a fetching Miss Vector. I am glad after all these years he sold two prototypes at auction for roughly a million. It wasn't the ay he wanted to become rich but hey, he achieved his dream, sort of...
new record sale for a Vector W8 last night at RM Sotheby´s aution in Arizona:
650.000$ plus fees:
That was fun to watch! Beautiful car. Miss that super-low, super-wedge styling.
This car should be born again. If there isn't an manufacturer for it there should be a component car that brings this cars stunning shape back to the road.
Here is an in-depth look at a W8 by Doug Demuro. Such an interesting car!
