Look closely and you’ll spot a Skip Barber Racing School magnet on the refrigerator. Even though Jerry drives a Saab on the show, in real life, Seinfeld is a huge Porsche lover. He owns so many of them (47 to be exact) that he had to rent an entire hanger at the Santa Monica Airport house.

An ultra-rare 959,
A 1955 550 Spyder,
Porsche Carrera GT Supercar
