And true to Porsche pricing, you can get special paint for an extra $63,000 or magnesium wheels for an extra $32,000.

I have heard! My buddy who I grew up with owns the Gotham Comedy Club so he knows Seinfeld personally. He's called him up before when he got his GT3 (and others) to go for a ride out to LI. Not a bad gig!

Or miserably undersold. They have come no where near their sales target, having sold less than half of the 918 they planned to make. Le Ferrari and the P1 seem to be the better options, but time will tell.

When my dad picked up his C4S from Beverly Hills Porsche, the sales manager told me Seinfeld is their #1 customer and that he switches to a new porsche every other week.

that seems dumb, it would take longer than that to get tired of one and move on. especially if hes working or traveling and doesnt drive very often.
