Although its stock has come down from its IPO price, some Facebook partners could still be worth, by most estimates, huge stadium-sized buckets of money. While they can't sell their shares for six months, they're probably thinking about how to spend their cash when the time is right.
Perhaps they want to buy a new car or two. Or maybe ten. And while some of us might go out and simply fill up a garage with the highest priced offerings from the likes of Ferrari and Bentley, Facebook culture is different.
Facebook's corporate ethos reportedly shuns overt displays of wealth. CEO Mark Zuckerberg works in a t-shirt and plastic sandals. He drives an Acura TSX similar to the one shown here, which starts at just over $30,000. While it's not exactly a "plastic sandals" car -- that would be a Nissan Versa -- it's not Bruno Magli, either.
We're guessing a Facebook employee will want to drive something that shows an interest in the latest technology along with proper respect for the environment. If a car happens to be outrageously expensive, that can be excused if it at least appeals strongly to the "green" and/or "geeky" style.
With all that in mind, here are some suggestions for cars Facebook employees may want to consider.
