NEW YORK (AP) -- Jerry Seinfeld has been sued by a company claiming it bought the comedian's 1958 Porsche for $1.5 million only to discover it was a fake.

Fica Frio Limited's lawsuit was filed in Manhattan federal court Friday against a comic known for his love of vintage cars.

Seinfeld mixes his affection for fancy vehicles with his love of comedy in his series "Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee."

The lawsuit said Fica Frio's representatives paid $1.54 million at a March 2016 auction in Florida.

The lawsuit, seeking unspecified damages, said they learned the car was not authentic.

According to the lawsuit, Seinfeld apologized by voicemail last June, promising a refund. But the refund never came.

Seinfeld's lawyer, Orin Snyder, says the lawsuit is frivolous and Fica Frio never substantiated its claims.
