Well, sometimes it seems like nothing in this world can impress Elon Musk, especially people whom masses think very high of because they are always under the radar of Musk for being ‘not so special‘. On Tuesday, Elon Musk called the conversation with Bill Gates underwhelming.
Musk replying to Tesletter tweet said, “My conversations with Gates have been underwhelming tbh.”
Tesletter tweeted few tweets on Tuesday after Bill Gates revealed in an interview with YouTube star Marques Brownlee that he bought a Porsche’s battery-powered Taycan sports car.
Tesletter tweeted few tweets, “I wonder why Bill Gates decided to go with the Taycan instead of a Tesla.”
“I was disappointed when Bill mentioned range anxiety. 99% of the days when you do a commute that is less than 200+ miles you don’t have to spend time charging. If takes 5 min to put gas and you do it once a week you now have 260 min (or ~1,500 miles) for Supercharging @elonmusk.”
“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!”

Well, it is not the first time that Musk mocks billionaires. In the past, he targeted Amazon’s CEO Jeff Bezos and Facebook’s founder Mark Zuckerberg.
He called Zuckerberg’s understanding of Artificial Intelligence ‘limited’ and attacked Jeff Bezos for allegedly copying a plan to create an internet satellite.
Well, God knows what goes in the mind of Elon Musk when he targets billionaires. Maybe he does not find their vision special which people think very highly of, but this time it seems like the tweet comes from Bill Gates preferring Porsche’s Taycan over Tesla’s EV.
