Porsche announced today the addition of a co-Grand Marshal for Rennsport Reunion IV in the form Jerry Seinfeld. Perhaps the most well known and prolific Porsche collector in the world. Seinfeld, who will bring a number of his most-prized cars to Rennsport, was honored to be named to share the Grand Marshal duties with Singer.
“Norbert Singer is one Porsche’s most brilliant innovators and someone I have always wanted to meet. I am thrilled to join him in Monterey for Rennsport IV as Co-Grand Marshal,” said Seinfeld.
Seinfeld’s participation is particularly appropriate as Rennsport IV is honoring the Porsche 911. Included in his collection is the first production 911 (1964) and the last production air-cooled 911 – a 1998 993 that he bought from the factory – the last 993 to roll down the assembly line.
His collection, a mixture of street cars and race cars, includes a street-version Porsche 959 (not legal to drive in the U.S.) – one of only 200 ever built. Others include the Porsche 917K that Steve McQueen drove in the movie Le Mans, a 1959 straight-16 GT speedster; and a 1955 Spyder 550 — the same model and pearl-grey color actor as the James Dean car.
