The latest episode of Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee features Seth Meyers of Saturday Night Live fame riding shotgun in what is a very special Porsche from host Jerry Seinfeld's collection: a 1973 911 Carrera RS 2.7. Seinfeld chose the "no-nonsense" sports car because he thought it fit his guest's personality (Meyers thinks motorcycles "are like the cigarette of transportation"), but we enjoy the chance to see one of these rare, über-valuable Porsches being driven on city streets – and in the rain, no less! What we don't like seeing is the Carrera RS being parallel parked behind a pick-up truck, though, fortunately, it seems that Seinfeld was able to avoid any front-end damage to the comparatively fragile Porsche.

Once at the coffee shop, the two comedians have a candid conversation about Meyers' time with SNL, from his early days on the show when he didn't think he was good enough to be a cast member to some of the high points in his career, such as SNL's "Really!?" segment that he performed in and how he became a writer for the show.

After coffee, when they're back in the car and Seinfeld opens up the throttle of the lightweight RS 2.7, he manages to eke out a big grin from Meyers – or maybe it was a grimace at the thought of driving in the rain on old tires. Whatever the case, be sure to watch the video below (and stay tuned until the end for a surprise).
From Crackle: Really?!

      I wanted to like this one because of the car choice, but honestly, it felt pretty bland to watch. It was just difficult to get through this one without skipping back to when they were back in the car, and even then, I couldn't help thinking "For such an amazing car, they could have portrayed it so much better." I think it's the unenthusiastic Seth that killed it for me. Overall, this just was a weak episode despite how great the Porsche looked/sounded.

      That white and cobalt blue color scheme is amazingly awesome.

        Oh so you're one of those people that thinks a comedian needs to be funny 100% of the time. I see this as a couple of guys, who do work that I enjoy, sharing anecdotes about experiences that I won't have while driving in a car that I want.

      Seth Meyers has no idea what he is sitting in. I just lost any respect I had for him. WOW!!!

          Not even close, these are way cheaper than that. You could get a completely restored version for about $80 to $100 k.

          Stan, 80 to 100 is way low for a 73 lightweight. Maybe a 74 could be had for that, and then there is the question of whether or not it is a touring or lightweight Carrera as the lightweight is the rarer version. Kind of like the difference between a run of the mill big block Vette and one born with an L88 coupled with the difference of a MY 67 or 68.

      What a complete and total tool. And amazingly un-funny, too. Meyers is the Justin Beiber of comedy.

      the only funny thing would have been if they came backed to where they parked the car and it had been stripped and burned,and Jerrys says "NEWMAN"

      2 mins into the video and it all went downhill from there. Crossed arms in the car, coffee, long conversation with nothing to do with the car.

      Love this series! Extremely funny, awesome cars and the second seasons vintage Honda commercials at the very end are a great touch. Well done! Favorites from first season definitely Alec Baldwin & Brian Regan. Must be seen.
