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.

Except the 4.0L in this case is a Cup Car, not a road-going 4.0L GT3RS and 996 and 997 Cup Cars do nothing but depreciate. Yes, it is not a run of the mill 997 Cup car but it is more limited in what it can compete in. In addition, Brumos Porsche effectively no longer exists as it was sold last year.

If he hasnt driven some of them in years he may have felt like they were going to waste under his ownership. He wouldnt need the money as his TV show is still paying him millions. My guess is he started thinking its stupid to own so many cars that he isnt driving and isnt likely to drive for a long time.

I wonder how someone like Jay leno gets on. So many cars and so little time. I honestly think once you're past 5-6 cars (lets say 10 just to round up) you cant really bond with any of them or really enjoy and get to know them properly then you just end up with garage queens and dust collectors.

Leno has over 130 cars and over 100 motorbikes I believe. He also has a full time mechanic and someone who looks after the cars and gives them a drive, I think they also prep cars for him when he wants to take one out for a drive.

I don't know about Seinfeld but he would have to have someone looking after the cars, unless he has nothing to do and can spend a lot of time with them.........    :scratchchin:

Like I said.

I find it strange that he is selling. Bubble or no bubble.

That is unless he is planning on buying some heavy other vehicles of a different make
