Stars love cars and Jerry Seinfeld is no exception. In fact, it may be the gold standard for car collectors; There was a time when the comedian owned a record 46 Porsche models. It recently auctioned off some of those classics, as well as several Volkswagen models. That still leaves plenty of cars for Seinfeld’s $ 1.4 million garage and fleet management team to accommodate.
The East Coast Auto Auction of Seinfeld Cars was run by Gooding and Company and was held on Amelia Island, Florida. Total purchases exceeded $ 22 million. The only car that didn’t sell was a 2000 Porsche Carrera GT prototype, worth an estimated $ 1.5 million – $ 2 million more. The car may not have been sold because certain regulations and requirements were not set.
Seinfeld’s car collection is considered one of the most valuable in the country. His fondness for Porsche is easy to understand. These are sleek, edgy cars with hand-detailed plush leather interiors, custom Perlon or Velor automotive grade floor mats, and rubber floor mats or coconut floor mats. Coco floor mats are used in a variety of luxury cars, including Mercedes Benz, in white and in white. In fact, the company studied the fabric and color of the original Porsche car mats in its products. Luxury on wheels, safe, with tires designed to Porsche N specifications during the vehicle development phase.
