Everybody's talkin' at me
I can't hear a word they're sayin'
Just driving around in Jon Voight's car
The genius of Seinfeld's humor is that it draws on everyday life experiences, but we're left wondering if Jerry wasn't experiencing some premonition when he wrote the skit about George getting suckered into buying a wood-sided Chrysler LeBaron convertible because it was once owned by Jon Voight.
The famous comedian's 1997 Porsche 911 Turbo S is up for sale in California at a startling premium, and some buyer out there will soon be playing the part of George Costanza. The vehicle was reportedly the first Turbo S built out of a total run of 345 units, and the only one painted this particular shade of blue. Coupled with its celebrity owner's docket and with only 8,040 miles on the odometer, TruSpeed MotorCars in Costa Messa, California is reportedly selling the car for $225,000. That's a pretty hefty premium considering the Blue Book value on an ordinary '97 Turbo S would be about $82k. We just hope the buyer doesn't find out it was actually owned by a dentist who just happens to be named Jerry Seinfeld, too.
