Get Coffee in Seinfeld’s Car — After You Buy It

If you’ve seen Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee, you know how Jerry Seinfeld spends his half of the reported $400 million he and Larry David split for the most recent syndication cycle of Seinfeld:

Really f***ing expensive cars.

Three of which you can now own. In order to release three historic Porsches from his collection “back into the world,” Seinfeld will be putting them up for sale at the Amelia Island Auction by Gooding & Company on March 11th.

The highlight of the trio is a blue 1955 Porsche 550 Spyder that is expected to fetch up to $6 million, followed by a green 1958 356 A 1500 GS/GT Carrera Speedster that could go for $2.5 million. Rounding out the bunch is a yellow 1974 Porsche 911 Carrera 3.0 IROC RSR that was driven in the Roger Penske International Race of Champions by Formula One legend and Revlon heir Peter Revson that may bring in $1.5 million or more.

Winning bidders won’t have to worry about using a bitemark on a pencil to prove the cars belonged to Jerry, as they are being sold from the official Jerry Seinfeld Collection. “I don’t really even think of myself as a collector. I just love cars. And I still love these cars,” the Porsche-phile said. “I’ve never bought a car as an investment.”

Intended investment or not, the at least $10 million that the comedian’s Porsches are expected to fetch should have him laughing all the way to the bank.
