He says it's time to send them "back into the world."
Will Jerry Seinfeld stop driving around with comedians and drinking coffee?
The legendary comic—and host of Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee—put 18 of his rare cars up for auction this weekend and sold 17 of them, reports the Daily News.
The cars sold were antique Porsches and Volkswagens, including a 1955 Porsche 550 Spyder—the same model that James Dean was driving during his fatal crash in 1955. The Spyder alone sold for $5.3 million, while Seinfeld brought in just over $22 million total from the sale.
Why is Seinfeld selling his cars? According to a statement, he just doesn’t have enough time to devote to their care and wants to make another car lover happy:
Seinfeld is known in the auto world as passionate car collector. In a statement, David Gooding, president and founder of car auction company Gooding & Co. calls him “the definitive Porsche connoisseur.”
