If you are reading this, you probably have some opinion of classic Porsches. duPont REGISTRY was founded to be the go-to resource for the sale of classic 911s and what we found in our inbox this morning is nothing short of amazing. In a press release dated January 19th, our friends at the auction house of Gooding & Company have announced a trio of Porsches from Jerry Seinfeld’s collection heading to Amelia Island on March 11, 2016.
Seinfeld is rumored to have the largest Porsche collection outside of Stuttgart, and he probably doesn’t need any extra spending cash, so why not make some room for new additions to the collection to feature on “Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee”?
First up is a 1955 Porsche 550 Spyder. These featherweight models can be pushed with one finger, as they weigh less than a shopping cart. The air-cooled flat four is more Volkswagen than Porsche; this Spyder represents the Porsche brand emerging from the ashes of a destroyed Germany as it began to outshine its VW origins. The sale price is estimated at $5,000,000-$6,000,000.
Next is a 1958 356 A 1500 GS/GT Carrera Speedster. Gooding estimates a sale price of $2,000,000-$2,500,000. A fair price for knowing that Jerry kept meticulous care of this classic.
The finale of the trifecta is a race-bred 1974 Porsche 911 Carrera 3.0 IROC RSR. The International Race of Champions (IROC) was one of the best series in American racing. They used identical homologated production cars to bring together the best racers from around the world. From Dale Earnhardt Sr, to the Andretti family, it leveled the playing field between Formula1, Indy Car, and NASCAR’s top competitors. This car is estimated to bring $1,200,000-$1,500,000.
We will be in the crowd, posting video and live results from the events at Amelia Island, so stay tuned to Autofluence for updates.
