These Are The 16 Porsches Jerry Seinfeld Is Putting Up For Auction

Comedian Jerry Seinfeld is known as an avid automobile lover, with exquisite taste for Porsche’s best. In fact, his passion has made him put together an impressive collection of vehicles bearing Stuttgart’s coat of arms.

Still, a good collector always knows when it’s time for a change, and so Mr. Seinfeld decided to part ways with his Porsche collection. After Gooding & Company teased us with just three beautiful rare automobiles from the stack, the auction house now revealed the complete list of vehicles destined to cross the auction block, and it’s amazing.

16 Porsches from different eras are offered for sale, including a 1955 Porsche 550 Spyder, a 1959 Porsche 718 RSK, a 1990 Porsche 962C, and a 2000 Porsche Carrera GT Prototype – of course, the list is much more comprehensive (and amazing).

High-end collectors don’t really think of themselves as owners of the cars, but more like guardians, as Jerry Seinfeld explains:

“Each one of these cars is a pinnacle of mechanical culture to me. Many are the best examples that exist in the world. I’ve loved being entrusted with their care, and I’m proud of the level to which we have brought each and every one of these wonderful machines. Honestly, if I had unlimited time, space and attention span I would never sell one of them. And the reason I wanted to bid these cars farewell in this way is really just to see the look of excitement on the faces of the next owners who I know will be out of their minds with joy that they are going to get to experience them. My enthusiasm for this pursuit remains quite insane and I am very fortunate to have many other cars I get to look after.”

Pre-auction estimates have not been made available yet, but considering that just three of the cars (1974 Porsche 911 Carrera 3.0 IROC RSR, 1955 Porsche 550 Spyder, 1958 356 Carrera Speedster) are estimated to fetch about $10 million, you can imagine what kind of money the rest of the collection will bring in – especially as a few full-on pedigree race machines are available.
