Jerry Seinfeld filed a lawsuit against a vintage car dealer, claiming that he had sold him a Porsche with a false story that he would have been accused of having passed to another collector under false pretenses.
The star of "Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee" bought the European Collectibles 356 A 1500 GS / GT 1958 in Costa Mesa, California, for $ 1.2 million in 2013, after making sure it was original and the only product at Auratium Green with a black interior.
Seinfeld then resold the car at a Gooding and Company auction in 2016 for $ 1.54 million to Fica Frio Limited, based in the Channel Islands, which took legal action against Seinfeld on February 1, in order to force him to buy back the car and pay damages the car was not genuine.

Fica Frio's complaint alleges that Seinfeld had verbally agreed to buy back the Porsche and cover all costs after the case was presented to him last June, but did not do so on time. The purpose of Seinfeld's action against European Collectibles is to hold him liable for damages for which he is liable.
"Jerry has no responsibility in this matter, but he wants to do what is right, so he is engaging this action in order to hold European Collectibles accountable for his own authenticity certification and to allow the court to determine the right result, "said Seinfeld's lawyer. Orin Snyder, told the New York Post.
European Collectibles has not commented on the trial yet.
