It is interesting to see the cars of the stars. Porsches are a hot choice with some celebrities having a few. Here are ten famous people, past and present who own or have owned Porsches.
James Dean, star of Rebel Without A Cause, was a legendary Porsche owner. He met with an unfortunate accident that resulted in his death while driving his Porsche 550 Spyder. This event was immortalized in the Supernatural TV series where the car driven by James Dean turns up cursed, killing anyone who drives it. The car is affectionately known as Little Bastard.
Howard Donald is a lover of fancy cars, loves car racing, and has owned some awesome makes. These included a Ferrari 355, a Mercedes-Benz SL500, a Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG, and a Ford Mustang 390 GTA (sigh!). He is a member of Take That, A British pop group.
Donald also bought two Porsches. His first one was the Porsche 911, and it was a three-time winner at the Tour Auto in France. He eventually sold it for £235,000, or the equivalent of $285,140. Then came the Porsche 356, which Donald raced in the Goodwood Members’ Meeting.
David Beckham is known for his stylish attire. So, it is not surprising that he chose a Porsche 911 Turbo Convertible to drive. And it had to be black. Wherever Beckham goes, he is unfailingly trailed by his security detail.
Husband, Nick Cannon, bought Mariah Carey a Porsche Cayenne SUV. This showstopper was a bright pink color, down to the rims and trim. This might seem a bit over the top (color not excluded) as the singer with the five-octave voice doesn’t possess a driver’s license. She did have one but let it lapse and never renewed it. In fact, she must be driven everywhere by her chauffeur. This is probably more suited to the diva she is known as.
Get this. Adriana Lima also owns aPorsche Cayenne SUV, the same as Mariah Carey. However, hers isn’t pink. These cars retail at $350k, which is nothing to Lima with a net worth of $80 million.However, even celebrities need to look for a specialist that can perform a Porsche service to get the most out of their super-expensive vehicles.
Hilary Duff has a beauty of a Porsche, the 991 Carrera S. Duff made her fame acting as Lizzie McGuire in the Disney series. She can afford a Porsche with her net worth sitting at $25 million.
No surprises here. Of course, Tom Cruise has a Porsche 911. In the movie, Risky Business, Cruise drives a 1979 Porsche 928.
Gwen Stefani is a 52-year-old singer who has been rated as number 306 in a list of the most beautiful women in the world. Her singing is ranked number 86. She owns a Porsche Panamera.
Bill Gates is the founder of Microsoft. He has a few Porsches. These include a Porsche 930 Turbo and a 1999 Porsche 911 convertible.
Not to be outdone by Bill Gates, basketball player LeBron James has four Porsches. He favors the 911 Turbo S Convertible.
