The 11th season of Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee, Jerry Seinfeld’s little-web-series that could, is officially out on Netflix. If we’re counting years, Friday’s premiere marked seven years to the day since the show debuted on Crackle (it still exists, and is now Sony Crackle, by the way).

By now, viewers will know the series is not, in fact, about cars or coffee. (Though Seinfeld did get Jay Leno to drink his first cup ever in Season Three.) It’s mostly about comedy, sometimes about nothing and more often than you’d expect about Ricky Gervais’s life-affirming cackle.

As Seinfeld points out in the promo for this season, Comedians in Cars has “influenced a number of other shows.” But while it’s easy enough to copy the conversational format, the GoPro-in-the-car aesthetic, and even the semi-pornographic espresso closeups, there is one thing no other show can ever match: the cars. 

So today, we’re making it about the cars — or should we say, the vehicles. While Seinfeld’s personalized picks for his celebrity guests have included the best the automotive industry has to offer (a Porsche Carrera GT and Lamborghini Huracán both show up this season), they’ve also included a dune buggy and a pair of scooters. 

Our criteria for the ranking, as you’ll see below, is entirely subjective. We’re ranking these based on what we’d personally most like to own. The only rule is that we’re only including the main vehicles, not the extraneous ones (like the various boats). Where would you put Patton Oswalt’s wet-dream DeLorean? What about George Wallace’s Strip-cruising Buick Riviera? Compare with our highly biased ranking below — Jerry’s most insightful commentary included.

The Personal Favorites (of Someone Else) 

These vehicles aren’t “bad” — they’re just more intended for nostalgia or comedic effect.

Guest: Bill Burr
S5, E3: “Smoking Past the Band”

“This car was a secret project of the boss of Ford at that time, a guy named Bunkie Knudsen … The reason it’s called ‘Boss’ is because whenever the designers were asked what they were working on, they would say, ‘The boss’s car.’” 

The Oldies But Goodies 

At one point in time, people went crazy for these (well, at least a couple people). And we’d happily drive them till the wheels fall off.

So if you were a good humored person with a sporty mentality, it was the perfect car to just drive around town and watch people smile at you.”

Best Comedians in Cars Steve Martin Siata 8V

47. 1954 Siata 8V
Guest: Steve Martin
S7, E2: “If You See This on a Toilet Seat, Don’t Sit Down”

Guest: Bill Maher
S6, E4: “The Comedy Team of Smug and Arrogant”

“We’ve had a lot of cars on this show that put smiles on people’s faces, but I’d say this one really topped the list. You can’t look at this thing and not laugh … it’s a real police car even though it probably can’t do anything that you need a police car to do.”

41. 1950 Citroën 2CV
Guest: Gad Elmaleh
S2, E3: “No Lipsticks for Nuns”

“This was the most popular car in post-World War II France … Because French roads were not great at that time, one of the design goals for the car was that it had to be able to cross a plowed field with a basket of eggs on the seat without breaking any.”

A Little Something Extra on the Side …

The goofballs, Jerry’s personal cars and other vehicles that proved themselves worthy.

S8, E4: “Everybody Respects a Bloody Nose”

S9, E6: “It’s Not So Funny When It’s Your Mother”

“Way back in 2011, Acura decided that they were going to build a brand new sports car and they wanted to announce it on the 2012 Super Bowl. They asked me to write the commercial … Amazingly, Acura also included a free NSX for me as part of the deal.”

Guest: Norm Macdonald

“This is my car. I use it to go places, run errands, take people around, or drive it just for the sheer unbelievable fun of it.” 

This Is Where It Gets Hard

Will people be mad that we ranked some of these cars this far down? Are some of them here purely for how much they cost? Yes and yes.

24. 1965 Porsche 356C Coupe
Guest: Neal Brennan
S10, E8: “Red Bottom Shoes Equals Fantastic Babies”

“The thing about this car is that it has a very subtle sophistication to it.

S11, E1: “I Just Wanted to Kill”

“There are things, there are special things, but then there is this thing … It was originally intended to be a race car for Le Mans, but they decided not to do the race and instead just kind of tame it down, make it a street car. That was a good, crazy idea.”

15. 1973 Porsche 911 Carrera RS
Guest: Seth Meyers
S2, E5: “Really?!”

“What if at just the right time, just the right people made just the right thing? What if it came out so right that no matter how hard anybody tried, they couldn’t quite make a thing that was better than that thing? It doesn’t happen much. But the 1973 Porsche 911 Carrera RS is one of those things.”

14. 1957 BMW 507 Roadster Series II
Guest: Christoph Waltz
S9, E5: “Champagne, Cigars, and Pancake Batter”

“This is something that happens every once in a while in the car world, where a car company gets a little out of control, a little excited about making something better than they ever have before, and they end up putting too much into it, too much quality, too much detail, and they suddenly realize: there’s no way we can make a profit on this!”

Guest: David Letterman
S2, E2: “I Like Kettlecorn”

“[Paul Newman] called me one day and he said, ‘A guy is building me a Volvo station wagon with a racing engine. Would you like one?’ And because it was Paul Newman, I was a little intimidated and I said, ‘Yes I do, Paul. I’d like one of those cars.’ And he said, ‘Great, do you want a puffer on it?’ So I said sure, and I got off the phone and I said, ‘Does anybody know what a puffer is?’” 

The Dream Machines

Some we’ve dreamt of our entire lives, others Jerry championed. All are automotive perfection.

S11, E12: “Big Lots and BevMo!”

“Why the Dutch police of the 1960s felt they needed Porsche convertibles to do their job, I don’t know. But I love this thing.”

“[Porsche] retooled their entire production line just to make 10 more of these for the Dutch police department … And of the 10 they made, this is the 10th of the 10. So it is the very last Porsche 356 ever made … But it is also the first car I ever used for the very first episode of Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee.”

8. 1963 Corvette Stingray
Guest: President Barack Obama
S7, E1: “Just Tell Him You’re the President”

“The idea behind this car is just confidence. This came from an American culture that would just say things and do them without having any idea how. ‘We’re going to put a man on the moon!’ ‘How we gonna do it? When we gonna do it? Why are we doing this?’ ‘No idea.’ We just did stuff. Crazy, but great.”

7. 1976 Lamborghini Countach LP400

S6, E6: “Cut Up and Bloody but Looking Good”

Guest: Julia Louis-Dreyfus
S6, E1: “I’ll Go If I Don’t Have to Talk”

Guest: Lorne Michaels
S8, E5: “Everybody Likes to See the Monkeys”

“A lot of people say to me, ‘Jerry, what is the point of these old cars on your silly show? It’s outdated technology. They’re not as good as new cars. The restoration, the maintenance. Where are you going to get parts? Why would someone go through all that?’ Well, what if there was a car that was so special, so beautiful, so elegant that it could maybe even show you the meaning of life?!”

S10, E12: “Heere’s Jerry!”

“Imagine it is 1966 and you are so big in the business you have to open your own chain of movie theaters with your cartoon face on the marquee. You think like a star, you live, breathe and act like a star, and you’ve got the talent to back it up. This is the car you drive if you are that legend … [This is] the exact model and color Jaguar [Jerry Lewis] owned and drove in the mid-’60s during his heyday.”

1. 1949 Porsche 356/2
Guest: Jay Leno
S3, E3: “Comedy Is a Concealed Weapon”

“This is one of the very first production cars produced by the Porsche company. The first cars were built by hand in a sawmill in Gmünd, Austria. That’s why a lot of people call them Gmunds. They were made mostly of Volkswagen parts, but the body had a very advanced aerodynamic shape and was made of all hand-formed aluminum … This car somehow survived with 100% of its original components intact. The most amazing thing to me about this car is if you get in a Porsche that was built today, they feel kind of similar.”
