(Newser) – Jerry Seinfeld wants no part of a lawsuit accusing him of selling a counterfeit 1958 Porsche Carrera Speedster for $1.54 million. The comedian, who previously requested proof of the buyer's claim, is now suing the California dealer that sold him the classic car said to have been factory-made in "Auratium Green," per Page Six. Seinfeld, who relied on a certificate of authenticity from the dealer when buying the car for $1.2 million in 2013, "has no liability in this matter, but he wants to do the right thing, and is therefore bringing this action to hold European Collectibles accountable," his attorney said Monday, per the AP. The lawsuit notes this isn't the first time European Collectibles has been accused of selling an inauthentic Porsche. Seinfeld "does not need to supplement his income by building and selling counterfeit sports cars," it adds. (Read more Jerry Seinfeld stories.)
