Elon Musk took to Twitter earlier today to let everyone know that his recent conversations with Bill Gates have been “underwhelming.” While he doesn’t directly stipulate why his chats with the Microsoft billionaire were so dull, Business Insider suggests that it probably has something to do with Gates buying an electric Porsche instead of a Tesla.
In an interview with YouTuber Marques Brownlee, Gates described his new Porsche Taycan as a “very, very cool” vehicle. His new whip, which has a starting price of $ 103,800, is the German car manufacturer’s first all-electric vehicle and a clear rival to Tesla’s models.
Musk’s “underwhelming” comment came shortly after Tesletter, Tesla’s unofficial newsletter tweeted, “I’m disappointed because a lot of people are going to watch the interview and they are going to trust Bill’s word for it and not even consider EVs. Why? Because Bill Gates is a really smart guy!”
