*Insert Seinfeld car joke here.*
Jerry Seinfeld is one of the world's premier Porsche enthusiasts. His collection is one of the most expansive on Earth. He doesn't often part with his Porsches, which makes this spring a special one. On March 11th at the Gooding and Company's Amelia Island Auction, a trio of Seinfeld's legendary collection of Porsches will be auctioned off. The trio includes a 1955 550 Spyder, a 1958 356 A 1500 GS/GT Carrera Speedster, and a 1974 911 Carrera 3.0 IROC RSR. All three cars carry special backstories and insane price tags.
According to an LA Times report, the 550 Spyder is an un-restored car with the original chassis, body and engine with only 10,300 miles on the odometer. The 550 alone is expected to bring in between $5 million to $6 million. The 356 is one of just 151 examples and should sell for $2 million to $2.5 million. The 911 was imported by Robert Penske and raced in the International Race of Champions series. It is expected to sell between $1.2 and $1.5 million. If you are good at math, you may have realized that just these three cars are expected to sell for a whopping $10 million on the high end. Seinfeld claims that he has never bought a car as an investment, but his exquisite taste should net him an enormous profit.
