Jerry Seinfeld now selling 16 cars from his collection. Amazing list... photos in the link at the end

From Jerry:
“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.”

Pre-auction estimates have not been made available yet, but considering that just three of the cars (1974 Porsche 911 Carrera 3.0 IROC RSR, 1955 Porsche 550 Spyder, 1958 356 Carrera Speedster) are estimated to fetch about $10 million, you can imagine what kind of money the rest of the collection will bring in – especially as a few full-on pedigree race machines are available.

• 1973 Porsche 917/30 Can-Am Spyder
• 1955 Porsche 550 Spyder
• 1959 Porsche 718 RSK

I think there is such a thing as "too much" and I think he's reached it.

I think so with the modern cars like the 4.0L, he most likely thinks that he wont get a price like he is going to in his lifetime and may as well capitalize on it. Same with the speedster. The rest I cant comment on as I don't have much of an idea on them.
