1. 1967 Jaguar E-Type Roadster
It was the year 1988, when at the age of 17, where most the kids go to college and finishing up high school. Elon cofounded a software based company called Zip2 with his brother.

2. 1976 Lotus Esprit, aka ‘Wet Nellie”
Who isn’t a James Bond fan? I’m sure I am and Clearly Elon Musk is one of them too. This custom made Lotus Esprit aka “Wet Nellie”, was created by a company in Florida and cost $100,000 and although it only served as an underwater prop, but didn’t stopped Musk from paying nearly $1 million for this James Bond memorabilia in 2013.
“It was amazing as a little kid in South Africa to watch James Bond drive his Lotus Esprit off a pier, press a button and have it transform into a submarine underwater,” said Musk. “I was disappointed to learn that it can’t actually transform. What I’m going to do is upgrade it with a Tesla electric powertrain and try to make it transform for real.” Which was really a joke if you consider it now wouldn’t you Elon?
