Bill Gates owns one!

I know a guy who owned many Porsches. He told me that Bill Gates owns a 959. To my knowledge it's the only car I know that Bill Gates owns, maybe he chooses to invest his money in something besides cars. Anyway, I heard that Bill Gates almost got arrested because he has been caught speeding a couple times in his 959. Pretty interesting story.

I've heard this too...he was one of the main people involved in getting the DMV to do "show and display" registration for the purpose of bringing the 959 over, if I remember correctly.

Check out the newest issue of Autoweek (9/15/03) for a nice article about the 959. Finally they've been cleared for legal importation into the U.S.

Well, Bill Gates also owns a Honda NSX. That's the car that I know that he owns
