"What's the deal with BMW drivers?" That's probably (okay, probably not) what Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee impresario and noted Porsche-phile Jerry Seinfeld is thinking after a clueless driver backed into his 1973 911 RSR.
The New York Post reports that Seinfeld was chilling in the Hamptons, getting coffee at a cafe when he saw a middle-aged woman in a new BMW sedan pull in front of his Porsche parked across the street. That's when she backed right into the car, damaging it.
"We could hear the sound of metal crunching — rare, classic, expensive, vintage metal, by the way — from across the street. A sickening sound to a car person,'' Seinfeld said.
Ugh. Everyone knows that sound. It sucks. While the damage doesn't sound extensive, and Seinfeld can certainly afford to get it fixed, the real shame here is that the car was a rare RSR model of which only 49 were built in 1973.
But that's not the worst part — that would be the clueless, classless way the BMW driver acted next.
"Of course, her reply was not, 'Oh, my God, I'm so sorry,' but, 'Well, I couldn't see it.' She didn't seem to understand why I would be upset or how this was in any way her fault," Seinfeld said.
"She drove off. She did offer to give me her information, but the idea of having her in my life for one more second was intolerable."
Remember, it's never your fault when you drive a fancy new luxury car. After all, Seinfeld's Porsche is just some old car — who cares?
After this happened Seinfeld said he had to go home and put his head under the covers. I kind of want to do the same.
