Bill Gates is known around the world as a ridiculously rich geek.  But did you also know did some serious hooning back in the day?

In 1979, Gates purchased a Porsche 911 Turbo and got arrested multiple times in said car.  Gates even managed to get two tickets from the same cop that was trailing him when he moved Microsoft from Albuquerque to Seattle.

He owned the Porsche for quite some time, but ended up selling it some time in the 1990’s.  Where the Porsche went, we have no idea but all we know now is that it is currently in Austria where it will be on the block come June 6th.  It is expected to bring in anywhere from $55,000 to $71,000

Whether you are a fan of Microsoft or Porsche, this car would be an awesome addition to your collection.  How many people can say they own a car that Bill Gates got pulled over in?
