A Porsche 911 GT3 RS owned by Jerry Seinfeld heads to auction

It’s no secret Jerry Seinfeld is a bit of a Porsche fanatic. After all, the famous comedian and television star is as much a car guy as he is a funny guy, and Porsches make up the vast majority of his collection.

Brace yourselves because one of his Porsches will soon be up for grabs, and it’s no regular model. Auction house Bonhams has consigned a 2016 Porsche 911 GT3 RS originally delivered to Seinfeld. Yes, the Jerry Seinfeld. Not a Gerry Seinfeld.

The 991-generation track special was ordered with a number of items picked by the comedian, the most obvious of which is its Liquid Chrome Blue Metallic paint job, a color originally developed for the 918 Spyder hypercar (a car Seinfeld also owns). There’s also a smaller rear wing that’s included with the sale, which can easily be swapped in for the standard GT-style wing shown here.

According to the listing, the car had more than $250,000 worth of extras added, bringing its original sticker price to almost $450,000. Bonhams doesn’t think you’ll have to pay that much for the car now, however. The estimate is between $290,000 and $330,000. The lower estimate would be quite the deal given the car has just 1,500 miles on its odometer.

The 991-generation 911 GT3 RS was introduced for the 2016 model year and came with a 4.0-liter flat-6 rated at 500 hp and 338 lb-ft of torque. It also came with a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission as standard. An updated version was introduced for 2019. This one upped output to 520 hp and 346 lb-ft and added some new aerodynamic mods.

The auction will take place on April 10 in Los Angeles, California. Other impressive cars headed to the sale include a Ferrari 458 Speciale, McLaren Senna, McLaren Senna GTR, a modern Ford GT, and a Saleen S7. There’s also a 997 Porsche 911 GT2 listed.
