Jerry Seinfeld auctioned off 17 of his collectible cars, most of which were Porsches, for $22.2 million.
The celebrity comedian and actor actually had 18 cars cross the auction block, but the 2000 Porsche Carrera GT failed to sell. Selling for the most money was a 1955 Porsche 550 Spyder, netting $5,335,000, while a 1973 Porsche 917/30 Can-Am sold for $3 million. While 16 of the 18 cars being auctioned off by Seinfeld were Porsches, two bore the Volkswagen nameplate, a 1964 Volkswagen Van Campmobile and a 1960 Volkswagen Beetle. The classic Beetle fetched $121,000, more than four times the Hagerty Price Guide price of $30,000. The Volkswagen Van Campmobile fetched $99,000.
Other iconic Porsches that sold for over $1 million include a 1959 Porsche 718 RSK ($2,860,000), 1974 Porsche 911 Carrera 3.0 RSR ($2,310,000), 1990 Porsche 962C Base ($1,650,000), 1958 Porsche 356A GS/GT Carrera ($1,540,000) and a 1994 Porsche 911 Turbo S ($1,017,500).
The cars recently crossed the auction block at a Gooding & Company Auction during the Amelia Island Concours.
