    959 sighting today

    Today in Seattle on the 520 Fwy, I saw a beautiful silver 959. It was the first 959 I've ever seen in person. Unfortunately I didn't have a camera with me, but he was flying anyway. He seemed to be chasing up to a C2 convertible.
    Does that 959 belong to anyone here?

    Doesn't Bill Gates have one? Could it be him?

    Well, it was headed east on the 520 which takes you right towards the main campus of Microsoft, but the driver was a younger guy (35-45) with blondish hair.

    Gates, who was becoming increasingly frustrated at having his 959 eternally tied up in the Port of Oakland's "free trade zone," suggested to Canepa that perhaps they could federalize the car by buying a number of sacrificial 959s to "crash and test."

    From what I have heard Gates and one of his partners are the ones we should thank for th 959 finally coming to the states. I have heard and read rumors the they petitioned whoever it is you petition in Washington to get them here.

    As far as I know, BG already drives his 959 on US soil.
    I was once at the factory a few years ago and they had a 959 owned by BG for repairs (he almost totaled it in an accident but I don't know if it was his fault).

    In the Museum in Stuttgart there you can have a look at a 959 sometimes!!!!!
