After an outpouring criticism of the German autmobile maker’s Web3 strategy, Porsche’s non-fungible token (NFT) collection’s floor price is racing ahead on the secondary market.

The collection’s floor price has more than doubled from its mint price – shifting gears from the initial launch on Monday, when the secondary market price struggled to meet the mint price, with most of the NFTs trading at a discount shortly after the project crossed the starting line.

Porsche’s initial plan was to sell 7,500 tokens at a floor price of 0.911 ETH, or roughly $1,420. However, NFT Twitter quickly excoriated the collection’s launch, noting large supply and high price as factors in the flop, noting the brand’s lack of understanding of Web3 strategy.

But Tuesday, Porsche said it would halt its mint, ending with 2,363 tokens created, creating a supply shock and soaring the price.

According to data from OpenSea, the tokens, modeled after the famed 911 sports car, are currently trading for floor price of 3.3 ETH, or roughly $5,200. The collection’s total trading volume is 1,344 ETH, or about $2,120,800.

Porsche clarified its Web3 strategy on Twitter Wednesday to further explain its goals in regards to the mint. The tokens will evolve with rarity, and allow collectors access to events and experiences in the coming months.
