Another person who was growing impatient was tennis player Andre Agassi, who had ordered a W8 and paid $455,000 for it. When Vector finally delivered the car, it almost immediately caught fire, and Vector was forced to take it back and refund Agassi's money. Only 17 copies of the W8 were actually built, between 1989 and 1993, and in the interest of fairness, most did not catch fire. Following the W8 was the WX-3, a car which existed only in concept form. By 1993, Megatech had had all they could take from Wiegert, and since they were now majority shareholders, he was fired.
