Aww, Michael thinks its okay to kill grandma and the kids so he can benefit. Get a grasp on eugenics boy-o.
Michael Kozlowski May 24, 2012
@ jester. I hope you choke on your breakfast as well.
Matthew Mckernan May 24, 2012
I heard somewhere that bill gates just recently purchased a pagani zonda R, not sure if that's true though. Has anyone else heard that?
jester May 23, 2012
I hope Bill Gates chokes on his breakfast. I'm sorry, but his sweeping support and endorsement of eugenics is a no go for me.
Joe Fats Harper May 23, 2012
He can definitely afford that type of massive collection
Andrew McNeal May 23, 2012
Anyone know what cars he owns now? Does he have a huge collection like Jay Leno?
Dennis Choong May 23, 2012
Gates' a well known Porschephile
Alex Arvanitis May 23, 2012
In 87 he got in trouble for going 3 times the speed limit in his 959. He's a pretty badass guy. I've read a bit on his life and mind set.
Hektor Yberg May 23, 2012
Hes still a nerd ( like me)
Mark Pasillas May 23, 2012
Haha calling a friend to bail you out after a good night drive nothing funnier
Kan Wes May 23, 2012
His 959 was held by the govt for a couple of years. So he does know his cars.
Wilson LaFaver May 23, 2012
Ya. I never would of thought that.
Chris Penza May 23, 2012
Yeah who knew he was a car guy? I always pictures him as too formal to drive something like this
John Serely May 23, 2012
Haha he had to get bailed out of jail for driving fast! I have a newfound respect for bill. I thought he was just a computer guy, not a car guy too

Evan Wolfe May 26, 2012

Evan Wolfe May 25, 2012

I own Initial D street stage PSP, Extreme stage PS3 and have been playing the arcade games & watching the anime since 2001!
Lou Guerrero May 24, 2012
Evan, you had a memory card for the Initial D game didn't you
Evan Wolfe May 24, 2012
The arcade series is called 'Wangan Midnight Maximum Tune' & I have sunk over $1,000 into it since late 2008!
Ghaith AL-sharari May 24, 2012
That is drop dead beautiful
Evan Wolfe May 23, 2012
@Anthony not sure cuz they just started on the new manga series last year :/ the original Wangan Midnight manga came out back in 1989 & they made the anime in 2007... So, yeah XD anime is based off of manga so they can't make up stuff as they go
Anthony Minicozzi May 23, 2012
@evan do you know when the next wangan midnight will be out or when the next season will start?
Devin Babyn May 23, 2012
Surprised I'm the only one that thinks its ugly as hell
Evan Wolfe May 23, 2012
Wangan Midnight is an awesome manga, anime & movie! The new Wangan Midnight C1 Runner features an FD RX-7 as the main character's car. The original Wangan Midnight series came to an end a few years back :/
Anthony Minicozzi May 23, 2012
@bader wangan midnight best movie ever lol
Jackson Michael May 23, 2012

Poor 959... What a coincidence though I was just reading an old Top Gear mag and saw the 959 vs F40 story. Good times....
Chris Penza May 23, 2012
Who doesn't love classic porsches? The Germans sure know how to make sports cars
Mark Pasillas May 23, 2012
He loves his Porsches doesn't he
Lou Guerrero May 23, 2012
Gates didn't get to drive his 959 for 13 years.
Wilson LaFaver May 23, 2012
That's sweet. Not just one nice car. He has had many sports cars. Thought he would just of had like land rovers and stuff like that

There must be some mistake with the price. 1st gen 911 turbo will outsell a 997 model for sure.
Chris Penza May 23, 2012
That's a sweet deal
Scott Gracey May 23, 2012
Yeah, I thought the price would be something ridiculous like 6 digit price tag
Thibault Leroy May 23, 2012
thats a resonnable car
Bradley Swfc Wainwright May 24, 2012
Ye but that must be so fun
Anthony Minicozzi May 23, 2012

Paul Lissona May 23, 2012
Me too uncle has a 79 911 turbo.
Thibault Leroy May 23, 2012

Lou Guerrero May 23, 2012
Ah, the useless rear seats of a 911.
Devin Babyn May 23, 2012
