When you're the man behind an electric car company and space rockets, it's not surprising that your garage would be stocked with a wide array of cars. Elon Musk owns a variety of Tesla models, including the prototype of his upcoming rocketship, so it's safe to say that the billionaire is a fan of sustainable transportation options. He also has a collection of Jaguars and Fords.
It's not shocking that the man who is working to revolutionize transportation of the future owns a classic sports car. The Tesla CEO is a huge Porsche 911 enthusiast, owning multiple examples of the iconic automobile over the years. In one particularly memorable incident, the silver-colored supercar became a symbol of Musk's wealth after he crashed it while taking PayPal co-founder Peter Thiel for a ride in 2000. While neither passenger was injured, the McLaren suffered extensive damage and was eventually sold off in 2007.
Musk was early to the BMW 3 Series party when he purchased this used model for $1,400 in 1994 and fixed it up himself. This iteration of the acclaimed German sedan had a powerful fuel-injected two-liter engine capable of accelerating from 0 to 60 in less than 10 seconds. Musk kept the car for a few years until one of its wheels fell off while a Zip2 intern was using it to run errands.
When Musk is looking to take his family out on the town, he typically opts for his Tesla Model X SUV with dramatic falcon-wing doors. The vehicle has plenty of seating, an impressive battery range, and makes ingress and egress easy for the entire brood (Musk has 6 kids).
