In a recent post on Bill Gates’ blog, he spent some time chatting with the author of one of his new favorite books while cruising around in a gorgeous blue Tesla Model X! The two spent the day chatting about the book, getting some burgers, and showing off the Model X on a beautiful Seattle day! They recorded the whole thing on a VR camera too which makes for a fairly entertaining viewing experience. We don’t know if this is Bills Model X, but we know he loves technologically advanced cars (and obviously technology in general), so we wouldn’t be surprised if he picked one up.

If you live in Seattle or Bellevue there is a chance you can find Bill Gates if you know where to look and yes I’ve even seen him at PF Chang’s before having a nice dinner with his wife. So it’s not a terrible surprise that his Porsche 959 was spotted by Instagram-er thebrit86 in valet outside of a Bellevue restaurant.
This 1979 Porsche 911 Turbo once owned by Bill Gates sold today for just under $80,000 at auction. Gates purchased the car four years after founding Microsoft but later sold it in the ’90’s. The car then recently resurfaced and was put up for auction with Gates’ signed registration included.
Even though Bill still drives the kids around in a minivan from time to time it’s nice to know that deep down he has good taste in cars.
Would you pay $80,000 to own Bill Gates’ old Porsche Turbo?
