As we told you earlier, Jerry Seinfeld is selling a few cars. These aren’t the run-of-the-mill Saabs that his character drove on his television show, these are real-deal collector-grade Porsche classics. In preparation for next month’s Amelia Island auctions, Gooding & Co is playing on Jerry’s star power to promote the cars, as obviously it is mutually beneficial for the parties involved. With prior collections, they’ve rolled out videos for each of the cars involved, and it’s likely that there will be more videos of this type coming soon. That isn’t to say that this one isn’t worth watching. It’s great!
Done in the style of his now-famous “Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee”, this video depicts RSK 718-019 with Mr. Seinfeld aboard. He gives a few reasons why this car is special, and takes you for a virtual tour of this magnificent automobile. I have a penchant for Porsche’s early work, especially anything involving Fuhrmann’s glorious four-cam. Everything about this Porsche, from the sound it emits (sort of like a lions roar combined with the sound a zipper makes, if that makes any sense), to the expertly sculpted aluminum bodywork is near-perfect. It’s a sharp-nose and tensed haunches on wheels, which as Jerry mentions, makes this Porsche still look modern. I just can’t get over that sound, that alone must be worth a million dollars, right?
