Street Find: Jerry Seinfeld’s 1959 Porsche Carrera 356 GT

It’s not every day you get to see a 1959 Porsche Carrera 356 GT. It’s actually—really, when you think about it—no days. Unless, that is, you happen to bump into Jerry Seinfeld at the Malibu Country Mart on a Sunday afternoon like I did a few weeks ago.

The location itself is where our last rally started, but it’s tough to describe the beauty of this particular  blue on this particular 356. Among the rest of the parked cars, this vibrant blue hue shone like a beacon. I tooled with the images for far too long to try to accurately capture it, but it’s just so brilliant in person that I’m not sure I’ll ever be able to do it justice. At any rate, enjoy a look at one of Jerry’s prized Porsches in the metal below.

Can someone explain why this car has vent windows? I was just looking at pictures of my ’57, and ’59 coupes and neither of them were so equipped. Was it an option? I also think I read that this car is original/unrestored.

Any info on the name and color code of this car? What a great color. I think it’d look great on my 510 wagon.

hopefully that’s some help. Takes a little while to decipher. At a quick glance, it reminds me of Aston Martin’s Mako Blue. Gorgeous color, would be sweet on a 510. has an early 70’s sorta, old bathroom tile feel to it

For a short time I had a 59 Carrera Cabriolet. It needed a full restoration including the usual rust spots on the back of the front fenders and I was just not thrilled with the way it drove so I sold it and made a buck or two. (This is when I paid $3500 for it and sold it for 5K, a HUGE profit in 1970)!
I saw it being offered for sale about 20 years ago, fully restored for 100K!
Who knows if he got it and where this one is today, white with red leather
