It would orbit the Earth several times, or longer, and then somehow be made to re-enter the atmosphere, testing how much of it burns up on reentry, and plunge to a specified location in a U.S. desert. Surely we have the technology to do this. The box in the car may be equipped to survive both the reentry and the impact. There wouldn't be much left of the car, but this too would be interesting, and its remains could be put on display by the company or NASA.
The sales prompted by this fascinating publicity stunt should reimburse the cost of the project, especially if this car model is sold for a modest and affordable price. I would love to own the only car to orbit the Earth -- a new Mercury Meteor or Comet, or new Plymouth Satellite, or an Orbit or Meteorite or I.F.O. made by another company that beats them out.
