Famous comedian Jerry Seinfeld is a big lover of cars, and it seems that he will now find himself in trouble because of his beloved car. He was sued by a company claiming his Porsche 356 A 1500 GS / GT Carrera Speedster from 1958, which he sold almost three years ago is in fact – a fake!
Seinfeld sold the car as part of an auction in Florida, and the new owner Fica Frio Limited, then cached $ 1.54 million. These days, Seinfeld received an unpleasant surprise when the law firm of the mentioned company filed a lawsuit against him.
After being informed by Fica Frio that the vehicle is not authentic, Seinfeld orally accepted, in a voicemail audio recording, Fica Frio’s offer to rescind the sale of the Vehicle and return to Fica Frio the purchase price that Fica Frio had paid to Seinfeld, plus all costs it incurred, in exchange for Fica Frio returning the Vehicle to Seinfeld, the lawsuit stated. Seinfeld breached that oral agreement, as he has not returned Fica Frio’s purchase price nor paid to Fico Frio its costs incurred, in exchange for the vehicle.
“[I] would also love to know how your guys figured it out because…my guys did not, I guess, see anything amiss with the car when I bought it,” Seinfeld allegedly said.
“My team responsible for the analysis at the time of purchase did not find anything suspicious,” he added. Nevertheless, it seems that things will still be settled in court.
