We use to love Jerry Seinfeld when he tried to make sense of the erratic Kramer during the 90’s and we love him today when he has returned after a long hiatus with Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee. But one thing has remained the same, the comedian’s love for cars with a special corner for Porsches. While there are surely more pieces from Stuttgart in the man’s collection, but here are three of his rare Porsches that have been kept in immaculate condition and are heading to Gooding & Company’s Amelia Island Auction on March 11th.
Jerry Seinfeld‘s three-lot Porsche collection consists of some of the most rare and beautiful Porsche cars ever made. There is a 1955 Porsche 550 Spyder with coachwork by Wendler which was originally owned by Lou Hilton, a classic car collector from Greenville, Maine. Second in the list is a 1958 Porsche 356 A 1500 GS/GT Carrera Speedster with coachwork by Rutter. There were only 151 Carrera Speedsters ever build out of which the GS/GT were specially prepared factory racing cars. Last on the list is a 1974 911 Carrera IROC RSR that was once driven by Peter Revson in the famous Roger Penske International Race of Champions.
The Amella Island Auction commences on March 11, 2016 where Porsche museums and individual car collectors one-up each other to get their hands on these marvellous beauties.
