Clandestine Collecting- A Porsche Collection Built in Secret

After a bad riding accident Lisa Taylor swapped horses for Porsches, and built up a secret collection worth drooling over. Though she had owned Porsches since the early 1980s, a 911 replaced her first-generation RX-7 in 1981, it wasn’t until later that Lisa caught the collecting bug. Her current collection is nothing less than impressive. In addition to a handful of air-cooled Porsches, including an Oslo Blue 2.7RS, Lisa’s collection includes numerous modern GT-series models. After giving up horse racing Lisa purchased a black and orange 997 GT3 RS from no less than Patrick Dempsey, and things only spiraled from there.

Lisa is a car enthusiast through and through. She and her father built her first car in the 1970s, an Aztec kit car (which looks like this, for the uninitiated), and has owned performance cars of one sort or another ever since. Lisa won’t confess exactly how many cars she owns, preferring the secret to overt bragging. She does allude to Mclarens and Acura NSXs also in the collection, and what is on display ticks all the right boxes.

Lisa’s tastes run towards high performance models in extremely extroverted colors. While mint green, Rubystone Red, Amethyst Metallic and vivid oranges might not be best for keeping a low profile, they certainly suit the cars in her collection beautifully. One 911 even appears to be color matched to Bianchi Celeste Green rather than a Mint from the Porsche catalog.

Did we mention that all of Lisa’s cars wear Michelin tires? Kudos, Lisa, and we certainly wouldn’t mind if you kept showing off your collection a little bit at a time for a long time to come.

Jerry Seinfeld Adds Ex-Matt Drendel 1976 Porsche 911 Turbo RSR To His Collection

According to a recent post on Instagram, renowned Porsche collector and comedian Jerry Seinfeld has recently picked up a new aircooled and turbocharged toy. This bright orange 1976 Porsche 911 Turbo RSR is one of just 31 cars ever built, and represents the transition period for Porsche between the naturally-aspirated 911 RSR and the 934. The photo posted two days ago shows the car as it was fresh-off-the-boat from Europe to Canepa Motorsports in Scotts Valley, California. Seinfeld, who lives in New York, presumably flew out to California just to meet his new baby.

 

Just arrived in US. 1 of 31. So excited.

A post shared by Jerry Seinfeld (@jerryseinfeld) on

 

This same car, one of only 31 built to carry this name plate, once belonged to the Matt Drendel Porsche collection, and was auctioned off during Gooding & Co’s Amelia Island sale back in 2012. This is a car that has been entered in, and victorious at, some of the most competitive and historic races in the world. Delivered to Sepp Greger in late 1975, this car made its debut at the 24 Hours of Daytona before being shipped back to Europe where Leo Kinnunen and Egon Evertz campaigned the car with a 935-style rear wing for the remainder of 1976. The car wouldn’t find major success until 1980 when it was entered in a number of races with Texaco backing and Autofarm Racing support for Richard Cleare and Tony Dron. That year, this car won its class in the Silverstone 6 hour race and the 1000km race at Dijon. In 1982, the pair teamed with Richard Jones to place 13th overall and win the GT class at the 24 Hours of Le mans. The car was already 8 seasons old, but finished out its career with a 1000km win at Brands Hatch later that same year.

The 2012 auction saw the car sell to Europe for a mega $891,000 sum. The prior owner remains secret, but it’s clear that Seinfeld is quite excited about the prospect of driving his new 3-liter turbocharged monster. This is a production-based racer with a 930 VIN, meaning it could technically be registered for street use in many states. Jerry seems like the kind of Porsche enthusiast that he’d at least try to drive this rear-drive 530 horsepower machine on the street. It certainly wouldn’t be very comfortable, but it’d be a big old heaping helping of fun. Would you drive a Le Mans-winning Porsche on the street? I might.

FlatSixes has reached out to Canepa and the Seinfeld collection for comment, and will update this post with more information as it becomes available.
