Jerry Seinfeld’s Porsche Collection Shrinks After 16 Of Them Were Sold For Over 22 Million Dollars

Jerry Seinfeld is an American comedian, stand-up artist, writer, producer, and actor. The comedian has a huge collection of 150 cars and 46 of them are iconic Porsche models, and all these 150 cars have an estimated worth ranging from $75 million to $100 million.

 

Among his cars, his Porsche collection is more famous, as he once owned around 80 units from the Stuttgart manufacturer. Even now, he still owns at least 30 Porsche cars in his massive car collection while the rest of the 16 Porsche models have been sold for a staggering $22,244,500 At the Gooding Amelia Auction back in 2016.


37. 1998 Porsche 993 (Last air-cooled 911)

 

Seinfeld bought the very last production air-cooled Porsche—a 993 Carrera 4S in Mexico Blue—in 1998. The car also boasts just 26K miles plus tons of documentation and service history, but so what? Low-mileage, pampered 911s are a dime a dozen. Even the “one owner” isn’t anything to write home about.

The 993, the version of the 911 built from 1994-98, is arguably the prettiest generation of Germany’s sports car. The changes from previous 911s were numerous and extensive, and one particularly relevant to Seinfeld’s car is the layout of the popular Targa model. Whereas previous 911 Targas had a removable, stowable center roof section, the 993 Targa introduced a power-retractable glass roof.


36. 1996 Porsche 911 Targa

Seinfeld bought the Targa and checked quite a few option boxes when he ordered the 911 Targa. He specified sporty things like stainless steel oval exhaust pipes and the "engine sound package," which included a modified airbox. The car also featured the available limited-slip differential and what Porsche called the "automatic brake differential," which was a form of traction control that used anti-lock brakes to slow a slipping wheel.

Seinfeld also ordered quite a few technical upgrades, including cruise control. The car received a Becker cassette stereo and a six-disc CD changer, which hides under the hood. He also got upgrades for the amp and speakers. The optional on-board computer is quaint by modern standards, with a display below the tachometer offering outside temperature, a digital speedometer, a trim odometer, average speed, average mpg, and distance to next fill-up functions.


35. 1993 Porsche 964 Carrera RSR 3.8

The air-cooled Porsche 911 market has been in the spotlight for many years but over the last decade its market exploded with absurd auction prices. Additionally, the Stuttgart-made special editions with micro mileage run are the crown jewels of these models. And, one of those special cars was Jerry Seinfeld's 1993 Porsche 964 Carrera RSR 3.8 which got sold for a whopping $2.25 million back in 2017 at the RM Sotheby's Villa Erba event.

Other than the car's 350-hp Flat-6 and its stunning aluminum bodywork Jerry's 964 Carrera RSR 3.8 ran for only 6 miles which is extremely rare for an air-cooled Carrera RSR. 


34. 1973 Porsche 911 Carrera RS

Those who truly understand the value of structural supremacy and the heritage that comes with vintage car models know how important it is to keep those values alive. One of those stories belongs to Seinfeld's 911 Carrera RS. Back in 2014 when Jerry was doing his morning workouts on the streets of Hamptons, a middle-aged lady smashed her BMW into Jerry's Carrera RS totally damaging his precious Porsche.

Built for only 1,580 units ever, Seinfeld's Carrera RS had a 210-hp Flat-6 while the ducktail spoiler elevated the car's overall performance. In an interview with New York Newspaper, Jerry said, “Ask anyone who has ever driven one of these and they will tell you the same thing. There is something about this car that feels perfect”.


33. 1970 Porsche 911 S ‘Henri’

Jerry Seinfeld became famous as a comedian and later all that fame worked in his favor while running his own show named Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee. The comedian has hosted numerous famous people over the years and had some great episodes while taking them for a ride in one of his many cars. Jerry's Porsche collection was somewhat revealed during these episodes and one of them was the 1970 Porsche 911 S ‘Henri’.

Seinfeld's 911 Henri was featured in the 9th episode of season 1 while featuring Carl Reiner and Mel Brooks. Jerry took Carl in his Metallic Emerald Green 911 Porsche while talking about their career, cars, and life in general. 


32. 1964 Porsche Carrera 904 GTS

In the world of racing, probably the most revolutionary move was to incorporate a fiberglass body into the chassis ensuring structural rigidity. For Porsche, the Carrera 904 GTS was the first-ever model to utilize a fiberglass body which not only reduced the weight of the vehicle but also increased the structural rigidity of the car. All of these implementations came in handy back in 1964 when competing in the FIA-GT class racing.

Seinfeld's Carrera 904 GTS comes with a Silver alloy exterior paint job and Yellow badging for the model name. A YouTuber named Tim was doing his everyday Malibu vlog when he spotted Seinfeld's Carrera 904 GTS parked beside a cafeteria. 


31. 1952 Porsche 356 America Roadster

When two hard-headed automotive nuts meet at a classic car roadshow it definitely heats up the air in the place especially when those two names involved are Jerry Seinfeld and Jay Leno. Back in July 2022, Jay and Jerry met at a classic car road show in Malibu Country Mart where Seinfeld rode his rare Steel Blue 1952 Porsche 356 America Roadster. To make it more interesting, currently, there are only 11 of these America Roadsters exist making Jerry's open-top enthusiast-focused Porsche a rare delicacy.

Jerry's 356 America Roadster even became an inspiration for the 2022 Porsche 911 Carrera GTS Cabrio American Edition. Although this ultra-limited-edition is a lifetime opportunity, there's something charismatic about Jerry's 52 America Roadster.


30. 1968 Porsche 907K

Whenever we talk about brands like Ferrari and Porsche the first thing that automatically comes to mind is 24 Hours of Le Mans. Porsche has been going a big time at the Le Mans for a very long time and established their standing in the history of the 24 Hours of Le Mans. Well, all of this rich Le Man's legacy wouldn't have been possible without the infamous Porsche 907K Longtail which was the first Porsche to win a 24-hour Le Man back in 1968 driven by Vic Elford, Jo Siffert, Hans Herrmann, Jochen Neerpasch, and Rolf Stommelen.

If there's Porsche legacy it's most likely to have Jerry Seinfeld's name attached to it. Back in 2014, Gooding & Company sold the 1968 Le Man-winning Porsche 907K Longtail to Jerry for a whopping $3.63 million. Additionally, there are only two models of this Porsche exist making it the rarest Porsche model in history. 


29. 1976 Porsche 934 Turbo RSR

 

The Porsche 934 was the forgotten child of the company's 911 racing lineup created back in the '70s. The only credit it got was because of the noticeable wins at the 24 Hours of Daytona and 12 Hours of Sebring three times each. The car was heavy with 2,470 lbs dry weight and to make it faster, Porsche embarked on a modification journey on 31 units of its models.

Modified by Mr. Wolfgang Berger, the 1976 Porsche 934 Turbo RSR became a snarling monster on the track. Applied aluminum roll cage and front strut X-brace were just starters while the existing engine was fitted with a bigger turbo, 16" BBS wheels, Bosch K-Jetronic injection from the 930, etc resulting in a menacing Porsche racing demon that Seinfeld bought back in 2018. He even posted a picture of his 934 Turbo RSR saying, “Just arrived in US. 1 of 31. So excited".


28. 2019 Porsche 911 Speedster Type 991.2

Creating history is nothing new for Porsche but the German automaker company took it a step further by creating one of its old Porsche model's modern-take. It was in the late '50s when Porsche introduced their enraging roadsters and with only 2,922 units, the 1959 356A Convertible D became a cult in the automotive market. All of that history took a turn in 2019 when Porsche decided to make only 2 customized speedster models over the Type 991 influence as a request from Ferry Porsche and Jerry Seinfeld.

Seinfeld's 911 Speedster Type 991.2 model comes with a GT Silver exterior paint job while the 502-hp 4.0L Flat-6 powerplant delivers a menacing 9,000-rpm redline. On the other hand, the bodywork of the 911 Porsche features a lowered windshield, soft top, and rear tonneau cover provoking the original 356-based Speedster models.


27. 2016 Porsche 911 R

There is no denying that famous comedian Jerry Seinfeld has an unprecedented collection of Porsche memorabilia and the next one on this list is a modern-day road-legal sports car - a 2016 Porsche 911 R. Just after five years of owing this mean machine, Jerry put his 1,500 mile 911 R up for grab which could go up to $330K in price.

Seinfeld’s 911 R was a model from Stuttgart Marque’s “Special Wishes” program and to make it more interesting Jerry fitted the car with $250K worth of custom flares and several optional packages. The car has an axle lift system, carbon-ceramic brakes, the Sport Chrono package, a 23-gallon extended-range fuel tank, etc which results in a sticker price of $450K. 


26. 1999 Porsche 911 Classic Club Coupe

Jerry Seinfeld's Porsche collection has been fascinating countless automobile enthusiasts from all over the world and to make it more interesting, the comedian purchased the most expensive 996 generation Porsche ever sold. Back in 2023 at the Broad Arrow Auctions, an automotive consultant Ray Shaffer revealed the news of Jerry buying a restomod 1999 Porsche 911 Classic Club Coupe model for a whopping $1.2 million.

Seinfeld's 911 Classic Club Coupe was built around the influence of the 911 Carrera RS 2.7 with a ton of modifications. The engine is taken from an early gen 911 GT3 putting out 381 hp in total. Other additions like the Sport Grey Metallic color with a double dome roof, Fuchs alloy wheels, Alcantara headliner, and many more create a restomod Porsche masterpiece that perfectly fits Seinfeld's Porsche collection. 


25. 1949 Porsche 356 Gmünd Coupe

Jerry owns two 356 Gmund Coupe models but the 1949 model is a special one considering it was made with mostly Volkswagen auto parts and it took two years for the model to be finished. The Chassis no. 40 hand-hammered aluminum body Porsche was made in the Austrian town of Gmund resulting in the model's name being the Gmund Coupe. Talking about this model, Jerry once said, “…I love it because, to me, it looks like a little alien flying saucer…”

Besides his 1949 Gmund Coupe, Jerry took his no. 46 1951 Porsche 356 SL Gmund Coupe to Jay Leno's Garage back in 2016. Unlike the 49 model year, this car had a front-fitted engine making it a powerful yet unstable racing car that was used back in the day. On the other hand, the 1949 Gmund had a rear-engine and rear-wheel drive establishing its superior on-road handling prowess. 


24. 1966 Porsche 356C SC Dutch Polizei

One of the most ultra-rare Porsche cars in Seinfeld's collection is the 1966 Porsche 356C SC Dutch Polizei. Back in the mid-'60s, Porsche made 10 cars for the Dutch Police force making robbery or any getaway crime almost impossible. The Dutch Polizie were well-trained and well-versed with the 356 SC model resulting in high-speed police chases a cakewalk for law enforcement.

22. 2000 Porsche Carrera GT Prototype

Porsche has been around as long as the Ferrari but the car that revolutionized the modern-day Porsche supercars is the Carrera GT. Seinfeld’s Porsche collection is home to one of two Porsche Carrera GT prototype models built in 2000. He bought it back in 2007 from Porsche and after 9 years he tried to sell it in Gooding & Company auction but failed.

18. 1988 Porsche 959 Sport

17. 1953 Porsche 550 Prototype

Before the legendary Porsche RS Spyder came out in 1954, there were two prototype 550 models that experimented with removable hardtops making the roadster into a sleek and stylish coupe.

13. 1957 Porsche 356 A Speedster

One of the most controversial cars in Jerry Seinfeld's car collection is his 1957 Porsche 356 A Speedster. Jerry bought the car back in 2015 paying a much higher price than usual considering it had some restoration due and the paint was crooked. Later that year Seinfeld did all the restoration needed and made it a pristine Porsche sports model.

Jerry Seinfeld's 1963 Porsche 356 B 2000 GS/GT Carrera 2 Coupe is not as extraordinary as his other Porsche models but is the finest form of the Porsche 356 variant.

This was the 1958 Porsche 356 A 1500 GS/GT Carrera Speedster, a car of which around 56 units were made in total. Jerry sold the car for a sum of $1,540,000 when he sold a part of his Porsche cars. The car owned by him was finished in the Auratium Green exterior color. The GT in the name stands for Gran Turismo.

However, the company that purchased the car, Fica Frio, raised questions about its authenticity and filed a lawsuit against him for selling a counterfeit car. Later on, after years, in 2019, the lawsuit was settled by Seinfeld as he also claimed to have been duped by the car seller who sold him the car: European Collectibles. However, the terms of the settlement were not revealed. It is said that only one 1958 Porsche 356 A 1500 GS/GT Carrera Speedster was finished in that color, which is what makes it so rare and valuable.


7. 1990 Porsche 962C:

The 962C was a racing sports car that took part in the European Group C formula racing, which was specific to sports car racing only. Jerry sold this car for a sum of $1,650,000, which was completely restored and came finished in a white exterior paint. An important fact about Jerry’s car was that before him, it had only one owner, in the form of the sports car racing team Joest Racing.

When it was used by Joest Racing, Bob Wollek, Frank Jelinski, John Winter, and Bernd Schneider were some of the drivers who raced the car. The vehicle was restored in 2001, and it featured the Doppelflügel rear spoiler setup as well. As a racing car, this vehicle featured ventilated disc brakes on all four wheels used an independent suspension setup with shock absorbers, and also got Bosch Motronic fuel injection.


6. 1964 Porsche 911:

The 1964 Porsche 911 was one of the cars Jerry did not put up for sale. It is said that the car was bought by Jerry for a price of $400,000, after which he spent another $250,000 to restore it to its original form. The restoration took place in Germany, at the Porsche factory in Zuffenhausen with authentic Porsche 1964 911 parts. It is said that after restoration, the car got a grey finish for its exterior.

Recently, one 1964 911 was auctioned at a price of $1.76 million. What makes this model year of the 911 so special is that it was when the legacy started. Also, the car was made for Ferry Porsche, the son of Porsche’s founder. As a result, it was equipped with a sunroof, got metallic paint, and also featured leather seats. When released, the 911 was available only as a coupe model. The Targa top was introduced in 1966, whereas the convertible joined the lineup in 1982.


5. 1974 Porsche 911 Carrera 3.0 IROC RSR:

The 1974 Porsche 911 Carrera 3.0 IROC RSR is one of Jerry’s prized Porsche cars and was auctioned for a sum of $2,310,000 back in 2016. The auction was headed by Gooding and Co., and at the same time, the 1958 Porsche 356 A 1500 GS/GT Carrera Speedster and the 1955 Porsche 550 Spyder were auctioned as well. The RSR was a racecar that was raced by Peter Revson at the Penske International Race of Champions.

4. 1959 Porsche 718 RSK Spyder:

The 1959 Porsche 718 RSK is one of the most beloved cars of jerry, and we cannot think of the possible pain he would have had when he decided to part with it. The car was auctioned for a sum of $2,860,000. It came finished with a silver exterior and had the racing number 19 written on it. Jerry used the car to pick up Kevin Hart for his Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee, as he felt the car and Hart had three things in common.

The RSK in the name signified something. The RS in Porsche Terms stands for RennSport, which means Sport racing and the K stands for the K-shaped torsion bar suspension it used. It is said that Seinfeld’s car has a chassis number 718-019, and the number plate reads “1959RSK”. The car is the 19th model that Porsche built, and it might have been made for the 1960 racing season, as it featured the 1.6L engine and not the 1.5L flat-4.


3. 1973 Porsche 917/30 Can-Am Spyder:

The 1973 Porsche 917/30 Can-Am Spyder was another car that was auctioned for a price of $3.0 million. The auction saw the car sell for much less than what the estimated price was: somewhere between $5 million to $7 million. Despite fetching a much lesser value than expected, Seinfeld still decided to sell the car. Seinfeld drove the car on the track a few times but never pushed it to its complete capability.

The car was built by Porsche in partnership with the Roger Penske Racing team, and only 6 models were made. With its 5.4-liter flat-12, the 917/30 Can-Am Spyder was the most powerful road-racing Porsche ever made. The 917/30 was the final variant of the 917 model series, and it came with all-new bodywork. It is said that the car had a 0-60 mph time of 2.1 seconds, and the top speed recorded stood at 240 mph. 550 RS itself.


2. 1970 Porsche 908/03 Targa Florio:

The 170 Porsche 908/03 model owned by Jerry was the one that won the Targa Florio race. The American comedian has not sold the car yet. The estimated auction value for the original car and chassis combo stands at $3.6 million today. The car features two large orange arrows on its exterior and has the racing number roundel with the number ‘12’ right in the center, and the color combination is called “Gulf colors”.

This race car was developed by project manager Manfred Bantle. The 908/03 in Jerry’s collection has the chassis number 008. It was driven by Jo Siffert and Brian Redman for the Targa Race. The racecar had the perfect 45-55 weight distribution and was extremely lightweight at 1,100 lbs. Jerry Seinfeld has described the car as his “most treasured possession”, and that explains why it did not go under the hammer.


1. 1955 Porsche 550 Spyder:

The most valuable Porsche that Jerry Seinfeld owned was the 1955 Porsche 550 Spyder. This car fetched $5,335,000, the most for all his Porsches when it was put up for auction alongside the 15 other Porsche cars. The 550 Spyder was auctioned by Gooding and Co. at the Amelia Island sale in 2016, and it laid the foundations for a world record auction price for the 550 Spyder. Sometime later, in 2018, a 1958 550A Spyder model went under the hammer for $5,170,000.

What makes the car so special is that it was the purpose-built race car that dominated the 1.5L race class. Because of its wins, the car was nicknamed “the giant killer”. The car that Jerry sold bore the chassis number 550-0060 and had the engine number 90-063. Apart from Seinfeld, this specific car was owned by collectors Lou Hilton, and Joel Horvitz. In total, Porsche built 90 cars under the 550 tag.
