Jerry Seinfeld has created a web series that showcases classic vehicles. In each episode, Jerry drives a special car and picks up a celebrity to have coffee and conversation. Each show is filled with stories and laughs along with a memorable classic car. Here is a look at three of the vehicles profiled.
1958 Cadillac Eldorado
One of the funniest episodes includes a 1958 Cadillac Eldorado and a drive with Don Rickles. According to Seinfeld, this car is a “mobile version of Las Vegas,” so it is a perfect fit for Rickles. At the time, this car was considered top of the line for Cadillac. It has a V8 engine that produces 335 horsepower and goes from 0 to 60 in 10.7 seconds. After showcasing this car’s great attributes, Rickles adds humor with stories about Frank Sinatra and Ronald Reagan.
1973 Porsche 911 Carrera RS
When Seinfeld took a ride in his own 1973 Porsche 911 Carrera RS, he was joined by Seth Myers. Conversation with Myers included discussion of his days on Saturday Night Live. However, there was great attention on the car as well. Seinfeld describes himself as a “Porschephile” and owns an estimated 46 Porsche vehicles. He explained this car was nearly perfect in every way. It was a unique piece of machinery and was the first time a car manufacturer placed a race car into production. This car produces 210 horsepower and was the first vehicle with an aerodynamic spoiler sold to the public. The 1973 Porsche 911 is extremely rare. Only 1,580 cars of this model were produced.
1969 Lamborghini Miura P400S
When joined by Chris Rock, Jerry Seinfeld took a cruise in the show’s most memorable vehicle. Seinfeld choose a 1969 Lamborghini Miura to complement the life of Rock. He explained the Miura blew the crowd away upon initial introduction in a similar way Chris Rock did to the comedy world.
The Miura comes with a 360 horsepower V12 engine. At the point of unveiling, it was the fastest car of the era. Seinfeld appeared to have enjoyed his speedy ride a bit too much. At one point of the episode, Seinfeld was pulled over by a policeman for speeding along Route 17.
For the person who enjoys classic cars injected with comic relief, “Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee” is quite entertaining. Jerry Seinfeld’s web series has been renewed for a few more seasons, so more exciting cars and stories are yet to come.
