The mystery of Steve Jobs’ unregistered cars

The founder of Apple had the right to drive without a license plate on his cars in the United States. But why ?

Every motorist knows that in order to be able to drive properly, our cars must be equipped with license plates in good condition. If we don’t have it, we see each other give a fine because we are no longer identifiable. This alphanumeric code makes it possible to be quickly located in the event of a problem. But some have found the parry to avoid using license plates. This was particularly the case of Steve Jobs, the famous founder of Apple. We tell you how he did it.

A legal vacuum allows its cars to remain as new

When you buy a car, you have to pay the registration tax, which is calculated based on our vehicle’s emissions. But not Steve Jobs, who managed to circumvent this rule, yet applied in the United States. To do this, he has developed a method that works in thestate of californiawithout being verbalized.

He made an agreement with a concessionaire in order to change car every six months. This is precisely the time allowed to drive without a license plate, the time to carry out all the necessary procedures. This legal vacuum therefore allowed Steve Jobs to ride without plates.

Obviously, the businessman knew what he was doing and he had checked that he was not breaking any rules. On the other hand, he had to change cars every six months and buy a new one each time.

He therefore contacted a Californian retailer and offered an agreement. If the establishment undertook to deliver a new Mercedes SL 55 AMG every six months (which costs more than 120,000 euros), Steve Jobs would change his vehicle twice a year.

Not sure that it is economically profitable but it has at least the merit that your car is not recognized and that no one can identify you, not even the police. However, one wonders how speed cameras work in these cases…

In view of his income, one suspects that he was not close to an expense, but the anecdote is interesting. We suspect that his new cars benefited from a reduction from the dealer, very happy to count among his customers the great Steve Jobs.

But it seems quite complex if the purpose of the process is only to not be equipped with license plates. Is not it ?
