Bill Gates’ Porsche 911 Turbo Heading to Dorotheum Auction
Share this Article

Bill Gates has quite the history with his Porsche collection in his younger years, including a high-speed excursion in New Mexico that got him arrested and photographed for his infamous mugshot.

Heading to an auction in Vienna, Austria is a 1979 Porsche 911 Turbo that Gates purchased shortly after he founded Microsoft with Paul Allen. Someway, somehow, after Gates gave up this Porsche around the early-1990s, it found its way over in Austria where the current owner recently had it repainted the original metallic turquoise and had the German automaker overhaul the 3.3-liter, 300-hp engine.

The 911 Turbo is heading to a Dorotheum auction and has an estimated selling price of $55,500 to $71,000 and will be up for auction on June 6.
