Interested? You'll need deep pockets.
Jerry Seinfeld is a longtime Porsche guy. His collection is vast, the budget is endless. He typically has an affinity for older Porsches but newer models often catch his eye, like the 2016 911 GT3 RS. And being the Porsche connoisseur he is, he placed a special order. This 991 generation GT3 RS was ordered with $250,000 worth of options, including the Liquid Chrome Blue Metallic, a paint-to-sample hue from the 918 Spyder supercar.
Other features include a larger 23-gallon fuel tank, carbon-ceramic brakes, Porsche's Sport Chrono Package, navigation, and a front-axle lift system. All in, Mr. Seinfeld paid $449,890 for the car, and now its current owner is selling it at Bonhams Supercars on Sunset auction later this month. The last time this car was for sale was back in 2018.
All 991 generation GT3 RSs are special for a very good reason: a naturally aspirated 4.0-liter flat-six delivering 500 horsepower at 8,250 rpm. Power is routed to the rear wheels through a seven-speed PDK automatic transmission.
Like any good track-focused Porsche, achieving maximum power and shaving weight is critical. The front trunk lid, front fenders, and engine cover are all made from carbon fiber, while the roof is pure magnesium. Inside you'll find carbon fiber racing bucket seats and no rear seats. Seinfeld opted to keep the air conditioning and stereo, though removing them was optional for the truly weight-obsessed.
You may also notice the removable giant rear wing that's included in the sale. Deleting the rear wing gives the car a clearer, more streamlined look that kind of gives the car a somewhat more vintage-like appearance. There's just 1,500 on the odometer, so hopefully, its next owner will actually drive it more often. Cars like this should never spend their lives tucked away in some garage or storage unit.
The price? It's actually something of a bargain. Despite what Jerry originally paid, Bonhams estimates it'll bring in between $290,000 and $330,000. The all-new 2023 Porsche 911 GT3 RS, which we recently spotted testing, is still about a year away from being revealed, but Seinfeld's not-so-old 991 GT3 RS is still a potent track machine.
