A Look Inside Charles Barkley’s Car Collection

Like many other basketball stars of his time, Charles Barkley's car collection was a result of his aggressive charisma on the field. Charles Barkley demonstrated a refined taste in cars, investing considerable attention in selecting his vehicles. This sets him apart from many other superstars who opt for the flashiest models, often spending millions of dollars. Now holding a net worth of $60 million, Charles Barkley was an intrepid man while he was playing in the NBA. 

Apparently, he has sold most of his cars which became evident when he offered advice to younger NBA players, encouraging them to be prudent with their earnings and avoid unnecessary splurges on expensive cars. In an interview with PEOPLE, the Hall of Famer expressed his contentment with driving a Kia, stating, "I don't have to drive an expensive car. They know me."

2. Porsche 944 Turbo

Way back in the late 80s, the Philadelphia 76ers power forward used to drive a Porsche 944 Turbo. Just like his fellow counterpart, Shaquille O'Neal, he too ventured into buying a fast car such as the Porsche 944 Turbo. You often have plenty of money to spend on pricey indulgences when you build up as huge a legacy as Charles Barkley did. Barkley attempted to buy a Porsche, but he recalls it as among his worst purchases ever.

He was driving at 117 mph, and it felt like nothing, but the rain made the 944 Turbo hydroplane spin out three to four times. Henceforth, he never indulged in buying fast cars such as the Porsche 944 Turbo. He even got pulled over while driving his Porsche 944 Turbo and went on to say that "I got pulled over when I was behind the wheel of a Porsche in Philadelphia once for what we call "DWB," or "Driving While Black."
