“Mr. Seinfeld is recognized throughout the world as having acquired one of the finest Porsche collections ever assembled. He has become known as the definitive Porsche connoisseur based on his passion and devotion to the marque. We at Gooding & Company share his reverence for Porsche and are proud to offer these truly incredible examples. This is a rare opportunity for collectors to acquire some of the finest Porsches ever to come to market.”
Jerry had this to say about the sale,
"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. My enthusiasm for this pursuit remains quite insane and I am very fortunate to have many other cars I get to look after."
Previously announced were Jerry's 550 Spyder, his GS/GT 356 Carrera Speedster, and his Peter Revson 3-liter IROC RSR. Added to the list are a further 13 significant and beautiful Porsche lots (plus two pretty fun VWs). Below is the full Porsche list. In a later post we'll go more in-depth on everything Porsche-related coming up for sale at the Amelia Island auctions. After a relatively milquetoast auction season thus far this year, we're really excited to see these lots cross the dais. Get your bidding paddles ready!
