Jerry Seinfeld will be laughing all the way to the bank this March. He’s putting up sixteen rare Porsches for auction and the comedian will likely walk away with many millions of extra dollars in walking around money. Gooding & Company announced three of the gems Seinfeld plans to part with back in January, and they’ve now revealed the remaining beauties set to hit the block on March 11 at Amelia Island, Florida.
Along with a 1955 Porsche 550 Spyder (pre-auction estimate: $5M-$6M), 1958 356 A 1500 GS/GT Carrera Speedster ($2M-$2.5M) and 1974 Porsche 911 Carrera 3.0 IROC RSR ($1.2M-$1.5M), Seinfeld’s auction lot comprises a 1973 Porsche 917/30 Can-Am Spyder, a 1959 Porsche 718 RSK, 1963 Porsche 356 B 2000 GS Carrera 2 Coupe, 1957 Porsche 356 A Speedster and a 2012 Porsche 997 GT3 4.0 Cup “Brumos Commemorative Edition” and eight other vintage machines.
“I’ve never bought a car as an investment,” Seinfeld states on the auction house website. “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.” If you’re not in the comedian’s tax bracket, you’ll likely have to settle for ogling these Porsches from afar – check out some of the standouts in the gallery:
