After Gates said he bought himself an all-electric Porsche Taycan, Tesla’s CEO took to Twitter to throw shade at the Microsoft co-founder.
“My conversations with Gates have been underwhelming tbh [to be honest],” Musk tweeted.
Gates revealed his purchase in an interview with popular YouTuber Marques Brownlee. Brownlee, mentioning Tesla, asked the billionaire about efforts to address climate change with clean energy products like electric cars.
Porsche’s Taycan Turbo retails at $150,900 in the U.S. while the more pricey Turbo S costs $185,000. Tesla’s cars are also known to be expensive, but its entry-level Model 3 at least comes at a much lower standard price of $39,490.
Musk reacted to Gates’ purchase by responding to a Twitter user wondering why the Microsoft co-founder “decided to go with the Taycan instead of a Tesla.”
