Jay Leno and Jerry Seinfeld are both avid Porsche connoisseurs. So it came as no surprise when Seinfeld picked up his pal in his 1949 Porsche 365 Coupe. Imagine driving down the streets of Los Angeles, looking over and seeing these two comedians in this iconic car.
Seinfeld’s Porsche is the 40th car built by the company in Gmund, Austria, and each body panel was hammered by hand into its final shape. Lucky Jerry has 365 of its original parts, which is pretty unbelievable if you ask us!
1970 Porsche 911S
When you own a $22 million car collection that's been auctioned off, you are bound to have various Porsches in the mix. This 1970 Porsche is a solid collector staple, with a value range of $37,000-$58,000.
The 911 Henri features a rear-mounted six-cylinder boxer engine. The is the race car model that is often seen at Monte Carlo rallies.
1957 Fiat 500
This sporty Fiat had the top chopped off with fabric and blank doors (cutaway style doors), which both lend a more "open" concept to the car. This specific Fiat series was produced from ’57 to ’75. You may notice hints of its successor, the Fiat 126.
In 2008, Jerry had a minor accident with the vehicle shortly after purchasing it. The damage to the vehicle was negligible, and the car is still a part of his collection today.
1967 AUSTIN-HEALEY 3000 MK III
British comedian Ricky Gervais was hosted in Seinfeld's Austin-Healey. This gorgeous set of wheels picked him up for his episode and brought out a new side of the "cannot-be-bothered" Gervais - he scares easy!
We recommend you pull up the web series episode and see for yourself (episode 2!). Jerry took advantage of the 150 hp straight 6 engine and frightened Gervais. Who knew Ricky was scared of speed bumps!
1966 Porsche 911
According to Jerry, this car is "pure heaven." The sand body color is a classic, not to mention a trendy choice, and the color is also seen in the interior. You guessed it; this car is all original. Jerry's Porsche has never been taken apart, rebuilt, or even repainted.
It's one of the few Porsches that's been carefully handled and cared for throughout the years. Of course, it also happens to be one of the vehicles Seinfeld auctioned off. Its appraised value stands somewhere between $200,000-$300,000, and it sold for $275,000.
