If you’re a Jerry Seinfeld fan and a car aficionado, you’re in for a treat. The comedian and luxury car collector will be selling some of his coveted Porsches. Gooding & Company, the auction house acclaimed for selling the world’s most significant and valuable collector cars, will feature The Jerry Seinfeld Collection at its Amelia Island Auction on March 11. A preview of this exceptional collection will feature three historic Porsches at Gooding & Company’s annual Scottsdale Auctions marquee beginning Jan. 27th.
I a statement released by the auction house, David Gooding, President of Gooding & Company, said, “We are grateful and honored to be entrusted with these superb examples from the collection of Jerry Seinfeld, these cars epitomize the highest of quality and pedigree. Jerry’s keen eye for significant Porsches, the care and pride he takes in maintaining his spectacular collection and his enthusiasm and passion for the Porsche marque, makes this one of our most thrilling sales in our company’s history.
While Seinfeld is seen in the most sought-after cars on his Crackle show Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee, many of the cars do not belong to him. Only the 1973 Porsche 911 Carrera that appeared on the show is his.
So why is Seinfeld getting rid of his plush rides? He said, “I’ve never bought a car as an investment. I don’t really even think of myself as a collector. I just love cars. And I still love these cars. But it’s time to send some of them back into the world, for someone else to enjoy, as I have.”
The auction will take place at the Racquet Park, Omni Amelia Island Plantation, 6800 First Coast Hwy, Amelia Island, FL 32034 (1 mile south of Amelia Island Parkway). If you would like to get access to view the auction catalogue it will cost $75, which includes admission for two to the viewing and the auctions or $30, which includes admission for one to the viewing and the auctions. Bidder registration is $200, which includes a catalogue admission for two to the viewing and auction with two reserved seats, subject to availability.
