Steve Jobs is one of the most prominent figures in the world of technology and innovation. However, he is also famous for being a difficult person. Although personality has helped drive the development of groundbreaking products, it has led to conflicts not only with employees but also with family members.
Named in the memoir about Steve Jobs small fry, Lisa Brennan-Jobs wrote about her troubled relationship with her father. Which also includes the story revolving around Steve Jobs’ precious Porsche.
Don’t give your daughter a Porsche.
Lisa wrote that when she was 7, Steve started coming “sometimes, once a month.” At that time, he always came in a black convertible Porsche. Father and son would go roller skating together in the area near their home.
However, one night, Lisa overhears her mother and her then-boyfriend talking, including Steve buying a new Porsche every time he gets scratched.
Knowing this, one day Lisa mustered up the courage to ask if her father could give her the Porsche back if she bought a new car.
,no way, he said in such a critical and harsh tone that I knew I had made a mistake. I just realized that the rumors about him weren’t true, at least about the scratch on the car. He will not buy new things. At that time, I understood that he was a very critical person when it came to money, food and words,” she wrote.
give porsche to employees
While appeasing his daughter’s desire to get a Porsche, the tech genius once gave the Porsche to a 23-year-old young man. This is why he is an excellent salesman.
In 1984, Pertino co-founder and CEO Craig Elliott was working at a local computer retailer after taking a year off from school. They sold more Macintosh computers than anyone else in America. This helped him get invited to Apple’s headquarters in Cupertino. Not only did he have dinner with Steve Jobs, but he was also given the keys to a Porsche sports car.
The truth behind the rumor that if you keep scratching you will replace your car
Although the story that Steve Jobs replaced his Porsche convertible every time it got scratched may be just a rumor, it is true that he constantly replaced one black Porsche 911 with another black 911.
This habit doesn’t just apply to the Porsche 911. After working with Porsche for several years, Steve Jobs started using the Mercedes-Benz SL55. And then, every 6 months, he buys another Mercedes-Benz SL55 of the same color.
theo luxury launchThis habit has nothing to do with scratches, but is instead caused by Steve hating license plates.
At that time, the state of California allowed a person to own a car without a license plate for 6 months. For this reason, Steve Jobs agreed with a rental company to continually replace the SL55 every 180 days so that he could drive without a license plate until his death. John Callas, who worked with Steve at Apple, confirmed this story.
The car rental company must be very interested in this, because they have a constant source of “new cars” from Steve Jobs and when they have no interest they sell them.
