    Re: Jerry Seinfelds 993TTS for sale

    Is that price for real??? Does it reflect the US market?

    In France, a 993 Turbo S with the kit is about EURO 100 000

    Looks like about $60K Seinfeld celebrity premium, Gnil...compared to this one for instance> http://www.sloancars.com/vs1/detail.asp?CarID=146

    Apparently the U.S. market received only 182 copies of 993 TTS, but even at US$165K it is still difficult to comprehend an additional $80K of mystique for the S model at 424 HP over the base 993 TT at 408 horsepower.

    Celebrety primium... It does not make the car any better... and it's not like he is Brad Pitt
    It is car number one, but I would not think it makes such a big difference on that model....

    Always better to have the last one rather than the first when the model is the last run of a model line...

    Re: Jerry Seinfelds 993TTS for sale

    Why would he sell it? Could it be he's losing interest in the hobby? The guy's worth like us$400 million (?) why even bother unless you're bailing... .

    Re: Jerry Seinfelds 993TTS for sale

    I'm surprised it has that many miles on it. With as many cars as he has you would think they would all be really low mileage cars. He must have liked this one and drove it more than the others.

    He's pretty stupid to sell such a car. Of all cars he must have, this one is definitly a keeper.

    It's more rare the a carrera GT and with the money is making every year, he should just keep it. He might be funny and all but he's definitly not too smart.

    If you could make that much selling a 993TTS, I wouldn't call you stupid

    Re: Jerry Seinfelds 993TTS for sale

    I'll take it for $100,000! Just what I need,--another Turquoise Porsche!

    Like selling houses...there can be a big difference between asking price and final selling price.

    Re: Jerry Seinfelds 993TTS for sale

    Hey maybe the guy has like 50 cars or something and he doesn't want it anymore? Besides if someone is willing to pay that kind of money for a car then I would sell.

    Re: Jerry Seinfelds 993TTS for sale

    Why has this car been for sale like FOREVER???

    I have a nice necklace that will match the car..
    Turquoise is soo in this season baby!!

    Re: Jerry Seinfelds 993TTS for sale

    I saw this car once before, with the licence plate "FIRST", and he also has the last one made with a "LAST" plate

    According to fornes, the guy earned a $100 million last year. I think he won't give a damn if he makes another 100k or not on a car sale.

    I can't believe that he's making so much money just by doing, well... barely a thing.

    Re: Jerry Seinfelds 993TTS for sale

    Yesterday, august 9th, i saw my first 993 turbo s. I was on the highway with a state trooper about 100 yards infront of me, so i was going nowhere fast. Luckily, this was to my advantage for a 993 turbo s was in my rearview mirror. At first i thought it was just a turbo, but i was quickly able to see the intakes over the rear wheels. The guy driving pulled up next to me at a fast rate of speed and quickly saw what was ahead so i was next to him for about 2 miles. My enjoyment came to an end though when he split to new jersey (lowering the value of the car) and i stayed in pennsylvania. I must say...it is the ultimate porsche having seen my fair share of cgt's and having a neighbor with a new carrera s, in cobalt blue, aero package, and pccb's. Just nothing can match it.

    Re: Jerry Seinfelds 993TTS for sale

    This is precisely why the 993 Turbo S autos are commanding better than average used market strength,--there were not that many made, and they are a terrific automobile. And of course, as some people know, when a blue turquoise car goes through the line at Zuffenhausen, they put a little more attention to detail into the cars,--as well as put the hottest engine they have into it!

    About That NJ Comment Regarding Lowering The Value

    So you are in Easton...across from Phillipsburg. How is that toxic waste working out for you ? Only joking but hey you started it. I see plenty of your compadres hustling across the border to work with us every day.

    Re: Jerry Seinfelds 993TTS for sale

    I would be interested to know the reason for sale. I can think of only one: to make room in the garage for something else.

    A real shame if that is the reason

    Re: Jerry Seinfelds 993TTS for sale

    Wasn't he building a 3-story garage in downtown manhattan a while ago. So space shouldn't be an issue for him.

    If memory serves me right, there were some builing plans floating around the internet of this garage maybe a year ago or so.

    Re: Jerry Seinfelds 993TTS for sale

    Matt--I believe you're right. It might have been Jerry's at one time,--perhaps someone bought it from him looking to turn a quick buck. Knowing Jerry, I suspect he has 2-3 Turbo S cars in his collection anyway.
