Everybody who knows a thing or two about Porsches is sure to know of the legendary Porsche 959. It was a massively advanced car when it was launched in the 80's, and was the fastest production car in the world until the release of the Ferrari F40.

The story of Bill Gates' 959 is one that stands out. But before we get to that, we need to rewind a few years.
