1979 Porsche 911 Turbo Belonging to Bill Gates Sold

Compute experts and cool cars really don’t mix very often, a fact made abundantly clear by the fact that Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg drives an old Acura sedan. However, ex Microsoft boss Bill Gates does have a strong passion for Porsches, surpassed only by Jerry Seinfeld.
Bill Gates classic 911 1 photo
This car, a 1979 Porsche 911 Turbo used to be owned by mister Gates and is a true modern classic by al standards. The car has hit the auction block soon, and we were be surprised it only sold for $80,000 in Vienna, the capital of Austria.

Of course, seeing as this is a true classic Porsche, excellent for the summer road rallies, it has value all its own without taking into account celebrity ownership. It’s got a 300 horsepower 3.3-liter engine and is much shorter than today’s 911.
