Seinfeld Sues CA Classic Car Dealership Over 'Counterfeit' '58 Porsche

This is pretty crazy! As one who loves classic cars, classic VW's in particular, this would be a pretty frustrating situation to be caught up in. I'd still love to one day own an early 60's VW Bug, Karmann Ghia, or Squareback and someday I will. But I would be devasted if after I bought it to find out that it was not all original. That would suck! And that's apparently what happen to Jerry Seinfeld. But his situation is a bit deeper (and way more expensive!) See, he bought the 1958 Porsche from a California classic car dealer but then...well check out the rest of the story below:

“Jerry bought a car from European Collectibles that was certified in writing as authentic. He relied on that certification when he purchased it, during the time that he owned it, and when he sold it three years later,” Seinfeld’s lawyer Orin Snyder said in a statement. “Jerry has no liability in this matter, but he wants to do the right thing, and is therefore bringing this action to hold European Collectibles accountable for its own certification of authenticity, and to allow the court to determine the just outcome.” Collector Fica Frio Ltd. first hit Seinfeld with a suit on Feb. 1, saying it scored the car from the “Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee” star in a 2016 auction with a winning bid of $1.54 million, only to find out it was “not authentic.” The company alleges Seinfeld knew full well it was phony and wants him to rescind the sale and pay back all expenses. But Seinfeld says that if the car is a dud, he was hoodwinked too. He says he paid $1.2 million for the auto in 2013, believing the dealer’s claims that it was a “one of one GT Speedsters ordered in Auratium Green with Black” and had recently been restored with “all original parts.” Seinfeld — who claims to be “one of the world’s most prominent Porsche collectors”
