Default 944S2 picture - Seinfeld Episode

Was going through my Seinfeld DVD collection and noticed there was a 944S2 picuture hanging on the wall of the dealership where Jerry buys his new Saab Cab. Did anyone else notice that? It was in Season 7 I think - the one where George argues about who stole his Twix bar and Kramer drives the Saab until there is no more petrol left.

Its my understanding that Jerry had some kinda Porsche picture or magazine in every episode of seinfeld. most where in his apartment, the seen the most was the guards red 964 Targa on his fridge.

In one episode there's a shot of a black 924S parked on the side of the road for a few seconds.

I wonder if Seinfeld has any 924/931/944/951/968's, because I've always seen him on television and in magazines with 911's.

the real seinfeld is a porsche addict, he owns every single model of porsche every made (so I've heard)... he has something like a personal porsche museum...

Car collection

Seinfeld is an avid automobile enthusiast and collector and is rumored to own one of the largest Porsche collections in the entire world. He rented out an entire hangar at the Santa Monica Airport, in Santa Monica, California, for an extended period of time during the 1990s, for storage of some of the vehicles in the collection. After his return to New York City he was involved in an extended dispute with several neighbors over the proposed building of a $1.4 million multi-story garage to contain the cars.

A current tally puts Seinfeld at 46 Porsches. Reporter Paul Bannister reports that his collection includes Porsche 911s from various years, 10 Porsche Boxsters each painted a different color and the famous, some would say infamous,1955 Porsche 550 Spyder, the same model and pearl-grey color that actor James Dean was driving when he crashed and died in September 1955 near Cholame, California. The centerpiece is a $700,000 Porsche 959, one of only 268 ever built. To his initial despair, he was not allowed to drive it as US emission and crash tests were never performed because Porsche refused to donate four Porsche 959s for destruction tests, rendering the car "not street-legal". He imported the car "for exhibition purposes", which stipulates the car may never be driven on American roads.[22] The car was made US street legal in 1999 under the "Show or Display" federal law.[23][24] In several episodes of Seinfeld, Seinfeld drives a Saab 900 (NG) convertible, but a Porsche-themed painting, depicting a Porsche 904 GTS race car competing in the 1964 Targa Florio race in Italy, is visible on a wall in his apartment, as well as a Porsche racing poster featuring a 550 Spyder depicting the 1958 Targa Florio. In another episode, he is seen hiding behind a red Porsche 911RS parked on the street. In addition, an issue of Excellence, a Porsche-centered publication, is featured prominently on an outdoor magazine rack in one episode and on at least one occasion he is seen reading an issue of Road and Track magazine from circa 1990 with a cover article on the Porsche 964. He also wrote an article for the February 2004 issue of Automobile, reviewing the Porsche Carrera GT. For the story he was awarded Road Pest - Silver at the 2004 International Automotive Media Awards.

In addition to a Porsche and a picture of Superman in every Seinfeld episode, there is also a piece of bread.

One of the places they like to hang a Porsche picture is behind his bicycle that is hanging from the ceiling.
