You may remember our story last month about Bill Gates’ 1979 Porsche 911 Turbo being for sale. The German sports car previously owned by the Microsoft guru was heading up for auction with an expected sales price between $ 55,000 and $ 71,000.
The final price was 9,000 US dollar higher than expected at $ 80,000. A German bidder bought the car via the phone during the auction in Vienna.
