Comedian Garry Shandling, a veteran of many movies and TV shows, died today at age 66. Shandling just recently joined Jerry Seinfeld on his web show Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee this season, with the unfortunate episode title “It’s Great That Garry Shandling Is Still Alive.”
In our slider tool below, you see two almost identical Grand Prix White 1989 Porsche 911 Speedsters. One sold for $209,000, the other for $363,000 at the same auction. The only major difference between these rare 1980s wonders? Jerry Seinfeld.
The Gooding & Company’s East Coast auction on Friday featured more of Jerry Seinfeld’s ultra-rare cars than you could count on both hands, and he sold them for more money than any of us could count, even as a group effort. That auction pull included profit from all but one of Seinfeld’s cars, which failed to sell.
By now the world knows about the three rare Porsches Jerry Seinfeld put up for sale, but the reality is that tomorrow, you can actually buy pretty much the entire Jerry Seinfeld Collection at Gooding & Company’s East Coast auction. Here are all his special cars up for grabs.
With all that NBC and Sony money coming in, we wonder: Does Jerry Seinfeld need space the for something even more special in his garage? Either way, if you’re in the market for a Porsche 550 Spyder, a 356 A 1500 GS/GT Carrera Speedster or a 911 Carrera 3.0 IROC RSR, prepare your bank account for a diet.
Here’s Lyndon B. Johnson, the 36th President of the United States driving a German Amphicar in its natural habitat with Eunice Kennedy Shriver and Paul Glynn as passengers. This was a thing in the sixties.
This 1963 Chevy Corvette Stingray sure makes a driver look cool. But when President Barack Obama is behind the wheel, that might be the other way around. Even Seinfeld seems dorkier than usual next to the commander in chief.
We knew this was coming for a while, but it’s finally here. Once-bearded drama kid, former Colbert Report host, soon-to-be Late Show host, and all-around consummate gentleman Stephen Colbert, has gotten coffee with Jerry Seinfeld. In an old wooden Morgan on Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee, of all things.
Here’s how Jim Carrey feels about fast cars: “I had a McLaren, and it was too fast for me, you realize ‘what am I eating.’ And it’s your testicles.” Get this and other gems of insight as Carrey tools around LA with Jerry Seinfeld in an old Lamborghini.
Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee is back! And that means a whole new round of fantastic, oddball, and obnoxious comedians getting coffee, in a car, with the great Jerry Seinfeld. In this case, he makes the point that comedy can save the world, and he does it in an Aston Martin DB5 with Julia Louis-Dreyfus.
Stephen Colbert in a Morgan. Those five words are all I need to sell me on the upcoming sixth season of Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee. Of course, I was going to watch anyway because I really enjoy the show, but this really sweetens the deal.
In this early episode of Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee that I somehow managed to miss, we learn that Ricky Gervais is a very nervous passenger who believes his arms can act as a crash structure of an Austin-Healey 3000, which he calls a "death machine".
Even in its darkest, most malaise-iest days, the Chevrolet Corvette has embodied the spirit of American optimism, freedom and pure driving fun. This was true even at the very beginning — just look at this rare cascade green 1956 Corvette he's driving for the latest Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee.
The massive leak of Sony Pictures emails and information is full of all kinds of embarrassing, unpleasant stuff. But it's not all bad. In fact, some of it is downright beautiful, like this exchange between Sony Pictures Television President Steve Mosko and Jerry Seinfeld about putting a Porsche 911 engine in a '70 VW…
Of course Jerry Seinfeld loves Saab. The man truly is one of us. In this latest installment of Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee, Seinfeld's ride is a 1965 Saab 96 Monte Carlo 850 in all its two stroke glory. It's so weird and so wonderful.
The Toyota Prius isn't exactly our favorite car around here. And that's because it's disturbingly, destructively boring. Guess what? Jerry Seinfeld agrees. Phew.
Ah, the Ferrari Daytona. When it's running right, it's one of the fastest cars of its generation. When it's running poorly, it's more V12 powered torture device than land speed record machine. And this week on Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee, Jerry Seinfeld and Amy Schumer discovered the latter, not the former.
"Is it safe?" Kevin Hart asks. Seinfeld turns and says plainly, "No."
Spike Feresten helps pair everyday people up with the perfect ride on Car Matchmaker. He sat down with Chris and A.J. on the Petersen Automotive Museum's CarStories Podcast to talk about how Dave Letterman and Jerry Seinfeld were his original automotive matchmaking mentors. He also talks about matching Jerry up with…
We love Jerry Seinfeld's Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee around here because it combines comedy and cars, our two favorite things, and adds coffee, which we don't hate either. And this season, Seinfeld is going bonkers with the cars. Ferrari Daytona! Porsche RSK! Land Rover Defender! GAHHHHH!
