"That's gold, Jerry! Gold!"
A few weeks ago it was announced that Jerry Seinfeld planned to sell three of his vintage Porsches, with a combined value at around $10 million. The trio included a 1955 550 Spyder, a 1958 356 A 1500 GS/GT Carrera Speedster, and a 1974 911 Carrera 3.0 IROC RSR. And now it turns out the legendary comedian and Porsche fanatic is selling even more of his collection; he's parting with a total of 16 Porsches as well as two Volkswagens, a 1964 Camper and a 1960 Beetle. Why is he selling them?
He doesn't need the money. As he explained to Gooding & Company, "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." Anyway, here's the complete list: 1955 Porsche 550 Spyder/ 1957 Porsche 356 A Speedster/ 1958 Porsche 597 Jagdwagen/ 1958 Porsche 356 A 1500 GS/GT Carrera Speedster
