Famous American comedian, actor, writer, and producer Jerry Seinfeld will auction 18 Porsches and Volkswagens from his personal collection.

Seinfeld is known for his endless passion for all Porsche things and word on the street says he currently owns around 50 models from the German automaker. Things will change though, as Gooding & Company has announced a total of 18 vehicles owned by the actor will be sold during an auction next month, including 16 spectacular Porsches.

We don’t know why a passionate collector would sell a portion of his collection all of a sudden, but Seinfeld says “the reason I wanted to bid these cars farewell in this way is really just to see the look of excitement on the faces of the next owners who I know will be out of their minds with joy that they are going to get to experience them.”

He also adds that he’s loved “being entrusted with their care” and he’s “proud of the level to which we have brought each and every one of these wonderful machines.”

The vehicles will be auctioned during the Amelia Island Auction on March 11 in Florida. Here’s the full list of models:
