With a net worth of more than US$ 100 billion, Bill Gates can afford any car he wants. The garage at his mansion can house 23 cars.

Bill Gates, being a very wealthy individual, has access to a variety of luxury cars. Some of the cars that he has been known to own or drive include:

  • Porsche 911 Carrera : Bill gates is known to be a Porsche fan and was spotted many times behind the wheel of the 911 carrera
  • Porsche 959 : He was one of the first owners of the Porsche 959 in the US and got it imported under a “Show and Display” exemption, which allow certain vehicles to be imported into the United States that don’t meet federal safety standards.
  • Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren : This is a high-performance car produced by Mercedes-Benz and McLaren Automotive.
  • Toyota Prius: Gates is also known to drive a Toyota Prius, a hybrid car known for its fuel efficiency.

But still, his collection is relatively modest. He does have a Porsche car collection, including several Porsche 911s. He does not seem to own any ‘exotic cars’ such as Ferraris, Maybach, or a Bugatti.

It is worth noting that Bill Gates and his family have been known for being very conscious of the environmental impact and have been using the cars in a responsible way, encouraging the use of alternative energy vehicles and supporting research in clean energy technologies.

Bill Gates House

His $ 131,000,000 mansion named Xanadu 2.0. The house of Bill Gates, co-founder of Microsoft, is known as Xanadu 2.0. It is a mansion located in the exclusive community of Medina, Washington, near Seattle. The house is worth over $131 million and is one of the most expensive and technologically advanced houses in the world.

Private Jet

He owns 2 Gulfstream G650 private jets and a collection of other aircraft.  Gates uses his private jets intensively, mainly for his work for the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.

SuperYacht

He is building a new yacht in the Netherlands, around 100 meters long. But it is not the reported ‘Project Aqua’.

We were told however that Gates is actually building a new motor yacht. He is building a superyacht at a Dutch yard (according to the Telegraph it is Feadship), with a UK-based designer. In December 2020 the yacht Wayfinder was launched at Astilleros Armon in Spain. Wayfinder will be the support vessel for Bill Gates yacht.  The vessel will carry tenders and toys for the mothership.

Phoebe Adele Gates

Bill’s Daughter Phoebe Adele Gates is the youngest child of Bill Gates and Melinda Gates. Phoebe was born in 2002, and not much is publicly known about her as her parents have kept her life private. Bill and Melinda Gates have made a conscious effort to keep their children out of the public eye, and have stated that they want their children to have as normal a childhood as possible.

What started as a ‘yacht spotter’ hobby, turned into a fast-growing yachting site with thousands of unique daily visitors.

In 2009 SuperYachtFan in its current format was published online and soon the focus changed from ‘yacht photos’ to ‘yacht owners’, creating the Super Yacht Owners Register. A database with more than 1,450 yacht owners.

This was an instant success as many people around the world are interested in, or curious about, these multi-million dollar yachts and their wealthy owners.
