Michael Strahan is an NFL Hall of Famer and has one of the most diverse portfolios of professional careers. The host of Good Morning America, as of writing this has a net worth of $65 million and he particularly likes to spend a big chunk on cars.

Michael has always been a car enthusiast. In an interview Cars and Culture with Jason Wein, he expressed his love for cars as long as he can remember. Growing up, he used to fight with his brother if a nice car passed by and claimed that it was mine. He also admittedly used to spend a lot of money on car magazines to which his mum said, you would have bought a car if you had stopped spending money on the magazines. After working hard for his success he kept his passion alive and created “STRAYLAND” an man cave warehouse where Micheal keeps his impressive car collection. Let’s check it out.

The 1995 Porsche 911 (993) Carrera RS Clubsport is a rare Porsche as it was never sold in the United States owing to strict emission standards. But Michael Strahan used the 25 years rule to his advantage and imported this beauty finished in Speed Yellow color. He has been recently spotted driving around New York in his new prized possession. Though acquiring this rare beauty wouldn’t have been easy for Michael as when new the car had an MSRP of $72,000 and we estimate he would have easily paid a six-figure price for it.
