Celebrity Porsche Collectors

Porsche has always prided itself on the people that drive their vehicles, and drivers have given Porsche the same respect. However, we know that there are drivers who want to stand out from the "regular" customers - collectors! These individuals have taken their love for Porsche full throttle. Many of these high profile people have a collection of Porsches that span decades and have cars that define their style. 


Celebrities Collectors 


 Patrick Dempsey is known as a doctor on ABC shows "Grey's Anatomy," but to car enthusiasts, he is one of the best collectors of Porsche in the world. The first vehicle he bought in his acting career was a Porsche, and after that, he was hooked! Throughout the years, Dempsey has continued to purchase 911 models like the Turbo, Targa and the GT3 RS. And he isn’t just a collector; he also races for Porsche in Le Mans and owns several race cars himself.


Another celebrity that is a vast collector is Jerry Seinfeld; as a matter of fact, he is one of the most prominent Porsche collectors out there. And that’s after selling over a dozen of his Porsches - but rest assured he still has airport hangars full of more Porsches. 


Keanu Reeves is another celebrity who is a big supporter of Porsche. He owns many Porsche vehicles, and the brand was his first love since receiving a toy Porsche from his grandmother. Reeves’ favorite of his collection is his custom 911 Carrera 4S that Porsche created specifically for the actor after his stock version was stolen.
