Being the successful personality that he is, Rogan doesn’t think twice before indulging in buying a few toys. A Tesla Model S, a Porsche 911 GT3 RS, a 1970 Plymouth Barracuda, and a 1965 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray – these are some of the cars that Rogan owns.

The podcast host has a lot of respect for Elon Musk and had him over on his podcast as a guest on numerous occasions. But Rogan’s love for cars is not restricted to his own lineup of toys. When UFC bantamweight champ Sean O’Malley and his coach Tim Welch came on the podcast as guests, Rogan joined them in discussing Musk’s brainchild Tesla, and a particular model that fascinates both Rogan and Welch.

However, when the conversation came to Tesla and what Elon Musk had done for the company, all three of them had nothing but the best things to say about him. Then, Rogan proceeded to ask Welch what car he drives. To this, O’Malley’s coach replied that he drove a Tesla Model 3.

The Tesla that Rogan owns is roughly about $87,499. That is a big investment, which means that Rogan definitely saw potential in that car and trusted the brand to an extent to buy such an expensive car. However, it seems that might not be the case in its entirety. In episode #1998 of The Joe Rogan Experience, the host opened up about not trusting the Tesla cars completely.
