Comedian and TV star Jerry Seinfeld is a very famous Porsche enthusiast, but it appears he has recently decided to part ways with some of his models in the vast collection.
On March 11 at the 2016 Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance some of the vehicles in his sizable collection will be up for grabs at an action organized by the Gooding & Company – reportedly the number of cars sold will only make up around 10 percent of his actual Porsche collection. There’s a full list of the collectible cars up for grabs but so far the Internet hasn’t been able to come up with it – with a small exception: three of them have not been kept secret. We’re talking here about a blue 1955 Porsche 550 Spyder, a green 1958 Porsche 356 A 1500 GS/GT Carrera Speedster and a yellow 1974 Porsche 911 Carrera 3.0 IROC RSR.
Most likely the 550 Spyder will head up the auction among the three as it is very similar to the one in which James Dean lost his life about six decades ago (in a parallel controversy with actor Paul Walker’s death in the Carrera GT). Nevertheless, the smallish sports car is among the most hunted classic Porsche and so far the pre-auction estimates for Seinfeld’s unit have the model selling anywhere between $5 million to $6 million. Meanwhile the 356 – which was only produced in 151 units, with just 13 of them having the Auratium green hue of Seinfeld’s car – should also have a great run, estimated at up to two million bucks.
