After Bill Gates said he bought himself an all electric Porsche Taycan (not Tesla), Tesla’s CEO Elon Musk took to Twitter to throw shade at Gates.
My conversations with Gates have been underwhelming tbh

Bill Gates recently revealed his purchase in an interview. Interviewer asked Bill Gates about efforts to fight climate change with clean energy products like electric cars.
Gates replied saying that electric cars would still fall behind petrol cars when it comes to range, but added electric passenger cars are one of the most hopeful factors in bringing down the cost of environmentally friendly alternatives.
“And certainly Tesla, if you have to name one company that’s helped drive that, it’s Tesla,” Bill Gates said.
But Gates is not buying one of Tesla cars just yet, “I just got a Porsche Taycan” Gates Said.
“That’s my first electric car and I am enjoying it a lot.” He added.
Porsche’s Taycan Turbo S costs $185,000. Tesla’s cars are also expensive, but its entry level Tesla Model 3 at least comes at a much lower standard price of $39,490 in US.
