A selection of Porsches from the Jerry Seinfeld Collection will be among the headline offerings at the 2016 Gooding and Company Amelia Island auction, scheduled for Friday, March 11th at the Omni Amelia Island Plantation Resort in Florida.
“We are grateful and honored to be entrusted with these superb examples from the collection of Jerry Seinfeld, these cars epitomize the highest of quality and pedigree,” stated David Gooding, President of Gooding & Company. “Jerry’s keen eye for significant Porsches, the care and pride he takes in maintaining his spectacular collection and his enthusiasm and passion for the Porsche marque, makes this one of our most thrilling sales in our company’s history.”
Gooding’s 7th annual sale held during the Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance will offer Seinfeld’s 1955 Porsche 550 Spyder (Estimate: $5,000,000 – $6,000,000), 1958 Porsche 356 A 1500 GS/GT Carrera Speedster (Estimate: $2,000,000 – $2,500,000) and the ex-Peter Revson 1974 Porsche 911 Carrera 3.0 IROC RSR (Estimate: $1,200,000 – $1,500,000). Gooding said additional entries will be forthcoming.
“I’ve never bought a car as an investment,” states Jerry Seinfeld. “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.”
