No one will be surprised that Elon Musk owns several Teslas, but what about the cars of Gates, Bezos and Zuckerberg? Not all successful entrepreneurs are car enthusiasts, it appears.
Some extraordinarily successful and therefore obscene rich entrepreneurs have a remarkably modest car taste. Below are their preferences with the more than 250,000 used cars from AutoScout24 at hand.
The man who amassed an immense fortune with Microsoft does not like boasting with his wealth. When the dollars started pouring in in the late 1970s, he treated himself to a Porsche 911 Turbo, followed a few years later by a Porsche 959.
Gates used a normal Ford Focus for a long time for commuting. Nowadays, the multi-billionaire is driving around in a slightly extravagant car: the Cadillac Escalade.
Jeff Bezos relieved Gates as the richest man in the world. The Amazon founder and boss would rather spend his money on a private jet that costs $ 65 million than on very expensive cars. Bezos personally brought the first packages to the post office in his Chevrolet Blazer and drove around for years in a Honda Accord.
The man who started Facebook in 2004 is worth 75 billion dollars fifteen years later. Yet Mark Zuckerberg has a far from extravagant taste when it comes to cars. He was also spotted in a Honda Accord (sold in the US as an Acura TSX) and also drove a Volkswagen Golf GTI.
As CEO of Tesla, Elon Musk has no lack of business success, unimaginable wealth and the latest cars. In response to a question from one of his 28 million followers, he announced on Twitter that the Tesla Model S Performance is currently preferred, followed by the new Model 3 Performance. A Model X is on standby for rides with the children.
The Frenchman Bernard Arnault joined the select group of entrepreneurs with a personal capital of more than 100 billion dollars this year - the other two are Bezos and Bill Gates. The CEO of LVMH (Louis Vuitton Moët Hennessy) once drove around in an armored and blinded Peugeot 205 GTI.
