Comedy legend Jerry Seinfeld famously didn’t wanna be a pirate, but he certainly wanted to own an epic car collection. Reportedly, his impressive garage of vehicles is valued at $100 million. Some estimates place it higher than a Festivus pole at a staggering $150 million. Reportedly, Seinfeld has a swanky New York residence solely dedicated to housing his impressive car collection.
Of course, Jerry Seinfeld can afford such an impressive car collection on the dime of his hit 90’s sitcom alone. Co-created by Seinfeld and Larry David, the series ran for nine seasons, concluding in 1998. Despite its humble beginnings, Seinfeld’s negotiation skills matched his wit. By seasons 7 and 8, he commanded an impressive $500,000 per episode, earning the title of the highest-paid person on television at the time. In the ninth and final season, he secured a historic $1 million per episode, cementing his place in the pantheon of television history.
Jerry Seinfeld’s net worth is estimated at a jaw-dropping $925 million, according to Celebrity Net Worth. His multifaceted career and smart financial decisions have catapulted him into the upper echelons of wealth in the entertainment industry. Seinfeld’s diverse income streams, such as earnings from “Seinfeld,” stand-up comedy, and lucrative streaming platform deals, have contributed to his remarkable financial success.
The Highlights of Jerry Seinfeld’s Car Collection
One of the most prized possessions in his collection is the 1964 Porsche 911, a true automotive masterpiece valued at an astounding $1.76 million. It is said that he acquired it for $400,000 and invested an additional $200,000 in restoring its former glory.
Back in 2015, Jerry showed off his 1963 Chevy Corvette Stingray to an impressive passenger. The then President of the United States, Barack Obama, took a spin with Jerry in the vette for Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee.
Of course, Jerry Seinfeld’s car collection runs deep with Porsche offerings. They include the 1994 Porsche 964 Turbo S Flachbau and the 2014 Porsche 918 Spyder. Jerry also owns racing models like the 1990 Porsche 962C. On the Kevin Hart episode of Comedian in Cars Getting Coffee, Jerry picked Hart up in his 1959 Porsche 718 RSK. The selling price for that vehicle? Reportedly, a cool $2.8 million.
The crown jewel of his car collection is undoubtedly the 1955 Mercedes-Benz 300SL Gullwing. This magnificent masterpiece made a memorable appearance on his recent show Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee, where none other than Lorne Michaels was chauffeured in style. With an estimated auction price of $6.82 million, the 300SL Gullwing exudes sheer opulence. Jerry’s has an elegant white exterior, complemented by a tasteful tan and beige interior and pristine white wheel caps.
