Jerry Seinfeld’s Porsches could fetch $10m at auction
The three cars in question are a 1955 Porsche 550 Spyder (est. 5m-6m US dollars), an ‘Auratium Green’ 1958 Porsche 356 A 1500 GS/GT Carrera Speedster (2m-2.5m dollars), and the first 1974 Porsche 911 Carrera 3.0 IROC RSR built (1.2m-1.5m dollars). Seinfeld is renowned for being a classic car – and in particular Porsche – enthusiast, thanks to his weekly ‘Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee’ online show, in which he takes comedians and other humorous celebrities for coffee in one of his many cars. The episode featuring President Obama in Seinfield’s 1963 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray is one of our favourites. The three Porsches will be shown at Gooding’s Scottsdale sale as a preview for the further portion of Seinfeld’s collection, which will be sold at Amelia Island on 11 March 2016.
