One of only 45 built, the 993 Cup 3.8 RSR is not for the faint of heart. It offers the opportunity to live an automotive fantasy…to those who dare to drive it. You can feel the power surge from the engine through the car’s rear wheels, giving you a sense of what the machine is capable of.
Needless to say, Jerry Seinfeld needed to get his hands on one of these bad boys. His collection wouldn’t be complete without it.
1981 DeLorean DMC-12
Bringing it back to the future, Jerry picked up fellow comic Patton Oswalt in this 1981 DeLorean. As they headed for coffee, Seinfeld commented, “The cars were built in Ireland with the assistance of Johnny Carson and Sammy Davis Jr., two celebrities. I don’t know why that didn’t work out."
As it goes with comedians, the ride didn't go as smoothly as they would have hoped. Within 20 yards of picking up something hot to drink, the car spewed coolant all over the road. Oops!
1963 ‘Split-Window’ Chevrolet Corvette Stingray
One of the most impressive episodes was when Jerry cruises this icy-blue ’63 Corvette down Pennsylvania Avenue. Who was he picking up, you may be wondering? He was on his way to grab coffee with then Commander-in-Chief, President Barack Obama.
Presenting the ’63, Jerry says, “Are there faster Corvettes? Yes. Are there bigger-engined, tire-melting Corvettes? Of course. Are there cooler Corvettes? I don’t think so.”
1984 Ferrari 288 GTO
“GTO stands for Gran Turismo Omologata. What does that mean? It means that it’s fast,” says Jerry as he presents the beautiful, sleek 1984 Ferrari 288 GTO he’s riding. He was on his way to meet fellow comedian Tracy Morgan, picking him up at Morgan's New Jersey mansion.
Seinfeld even got a quick look at Morgan's collection, which includes a Rolls-Royce Dawn, Ferrari 488, and a Lamborghini Aventador, to name a few.
1953 Porsche 550-03
Seinfeld’s prototype of this 550 race car was displayed at the Porsche Rennsport Reunion vintage race. As you may have already guessed, the show celebrates Porsche’s engineers and drivers. Seeing as though Jerry is somewhat of a Porsche fanatic, it makes sense that one of his cars be featured at the show.
The model has been largely restored by Seinfeld and was presented in 2011 at the Quail Lodge in Carmel-by-the-sea, California.
