Well known comedian and producer Jerry Seinfeld is a big fan of classic cars, particularly Porsches.
And It’s easy to see why when you look at how damn sexy they are.
He bought his first 911 in 1988, amassing an impressive collection from that point on.
Among his collection is the first 911 ever to be imported to the US, a 1949 Porsche 356/2 “Gmund” – One of the first Porsches ever and the last ever-air cooled Porsche – a 1998 993.
In March, Jerry will be auctioning off three of Porsches from his collection; a 1955 Porsche 550 Spyder, a 1958 Porsche 356A 1500 GS/GT Carrera Speedster and a 1974 Porsche 911 Carrera IROC RSR.
The combined pre-sale amount is estimated at 10 million smackers (dollars) and will be held at the Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance. We can only assume that translates to “Amelia Island for people that have enough money to fill an Olympic swimming pool.”
Jerry showcases much of the impressive collection in his web series “Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee,” where he picks up a comedian in a car and they get coffee. What a surprise.
The question everyone is asking, of course, is why is he selling?
The man is certainly not devoid of currency, so it’s not a cash-grab of any kind, rather quite a nice gesture, selling the automobiles so that other Porsche fans can enjoy them. How thoughtful!
