Jerry Seinfeld has one of the world's greatest collections of Porsches, including this 1955 550 Spyder

While there are no estimates available, the collection as a whole is likely to raise several million dollars.  

Gooding & Company founder David Gooding comments: "Mr. Seinfeld is recognized throughout the world as having acquired one of the finest Porsche collections ever assembled.

"He has become known as the definitive Porsche connoisseur based on his passion and devotion to the marque."

Seinfeld owns around 47 Porsches as part of his enormous car collection. At one point he owned so many cars he was forced to rent an aircraft hangar at Santa Monica Airport just to store them.

Seinfeld said: "Each one of these cars is a pinnacle of mechanical culture to me. Many are the best examples that exist in the world.

"I've loved being entrusted with their care, and I'm proud of the level to which we have brought each and every one of these wonderful machines.

"Honestly, if I had unlimited time, space and attention span I would never sell one of them.

"And the reason I wanted to bid these cars farewell in this way is really just to see the look of excitement on the faces of the next owners who I know will be out of their minds with joy that they are going to get to experience them.

"My enthusiasm for this pursuit remains quite insane and I am very fortunate to have many other cars I get to look after."
