After teasing us with only three examples last month, Gooding & Company has finally revealed Jerry Seinfeld’s full suite of Porsches it will sell at its upcoming Amelia Island Auction.
When the event kicks off this March in Florida, 18 cars from Seinfeld’s collection will be up for bidding. Two Volkswagens will be included, a Beetle and a Microbus, while the other 16 represent some of history’s most sought-after Porsches.
Predicted to snare the auction’s largest sale is Seinfeld’s ’55 blue 550 Spyder. Gooding & Company estimates it’ll fetch somewhere between US$5m and US$6m, notably more than a US$3.7m silver example sold for in 2012.
There’s also his immaculate 718 RSK up for grabs, a sale which coincides with Porsche’s release of the new 718 Boxster and Cayman, while some significant race cars have bobbed up too. His ’73 Sunoco 917/30 Can-Am Spyder will be joined by a 1990 white 962C.
The lot will also feature a prototype Carrera GT, and a ’74 911 Carrera RSR imported by Roger Penske for the International Race of Champions.
“I never bought a car as an investment,” Seinfeld says in a press release. “I just love cars. But it’s time to send some of them back into the world, for someone else to enjoy, as I have.
“If I had unlimited time, space and attention span I would never sell one of them. My enthusiasm for this pursuit remains quite insane and I am very fortunate to have many other cars I get to look after.”
He isn’t joking about many others. It’s said these 18 cars make up only a tenth of his collection, which is thought to be the most impressive this side of Stuttgart’s museum.
We can only imagine the quality of the goodies he considers worth keeping.
