Jan Koum, the co-founder of WhatsApp, is parting ways with a few of his valuable Porsche’s during the upcoming Gooding & Co. Amelia Island auction. There are ten Porsches in this collection being offered, all of which are heading to the auction block with no reserve.

“I am very excited to partner with Gooding to help find the next custodian for these wonderful machines.” says Koum. “Many of these Porsches offered for sale are the best examples in the world and they are all an important part of my collection. If I had unlimited time and unlimited garage space, I would never sell any of them, but nevertheless I’ll be very happy to see the next owner enjoy driving these special cars on the road or on the racetrack – just as Porsche intended for them to be used.”

The event is happened on Friday, March 8 at 11 AM EST at Racquet Park, Omni Amelia Island Plantation.

Here are the cars.
