16 of the World’s Greatest, Rarest and most Treasured Porsches are going up for sale. High end collectors are frothing at the mouths, 3 of the cars are set to earn $10 million at auction by themselves, and a few select people are going to get the automotive experience of a lifetime.
The reason? Well, Jerry Seinfeld doesn’t really have the time to look after them any more.
Seinfeld’s Porsche collection has long been the stuff of legend, and he’s right up there with Leno and others as one of the world’s great celebrity car collectors.
Now though, he’s decided to part ways with a select few of his treasured German gems, and they’re set to cause a stir. Speaking on the subject, he said:
“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.”
Gooding and Co., the auction house set to sell them, released images and a full collection list, and it would definitely make any Porsche enthusiast’s mouth water. Which one would you have? The list is as diverse as it is valuable.
