"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," stated the most famous Porsche collector ever.
The consignments from the Jerry Seinfeld Porsche collection are as good as retro Zuffenhausen sports cars get. Other than 356s and 911s, Seinfeld decided to part ways with a 2000 Porsche Carrera GT prototype.
An example of the 1958 Porsche 597 Jagdwagen (roughly translated as hunting car) will also go under the hammer, as will an example of the 1994 Porsche 964 3.6 S Flachbau. When all is said and done, the most interesting cars in Jerry’s collection are the racing cars.
Take the 1973 Porsche 917/30 Can-Am Spyder as a case in point. This evolution of the 917 boasts better aerodynamics, a 5.4-liter boxer engine with up to 1,580 horsepower, and a long wheelbase. All but two races were won by the 917/30 in the 1973 Can-Am season.
Then there is the 1990 Porsche 962C. During the early years of its career, the 962 became one of the most dominant racers in the World Sportscar, IMSA GT, and Interserie championships. The 962 also won the grueling 24 Hours of Le Mans in ’86 and ’87. Of all the Seinfeld-owned Porsches featured in the gallery below, which one would you make your own?
