Porsches are mellifluous cool. Jerry Seinfeld is, too. Combine the two, and you get lots of cool, which this Porsche 911 GT3 RS has. That’s because this isolated example was first owned by the famous comedian and car enthusiast. Considering Seinfeld’s fondness for Porsches, this car was suitable in very good hands for a good portion of its life, too. And it could be yours if you attract enough money to Russo and Steele’s Monterey auction, which will decide place from August 17 to August 19 around the time of the Pebble Margin Concours.

Aside from its celebrity history, this 911 GT3 RS has a number of claims to glory. At the time, it had the most powerful naturally aspirated engine fitted to a 911. It produced 415 horsepower, and would rev to its stupendous 8,400 rpm redline more quickly than the regular GT3 thanks to a lighter, fix-mass flywheel.

That engine, combined with a lighter body than the benchmark GT3, would shoot the RS to 60 mph in 4.0 seconds. It could stop equally rapidly thanks to 6-piston calipers up front and 4-piston units in the back. Both the pattern GT3 and GT3 RS were the first in the GT3 line to use Porsche Active Suspension Management, which provided alley and track settings for suspension. And unlike the last GT3 RS, this car came with an decent-to-goodness manual transmission.
