What cars might be worth money, say 20 years from now, worth more then the purchase price, and could still use them along the way for a bit of fun? Or what are the rarest late model production cars from each make? Some of my initial suggestions/reasoning ares: Pontiac: - 2009 Pontiac Solstice GXP Coupe. This has to be a very rare and fun car by a make that no longer exists. Thinking if Pontiac ever comes back or not, either way could be good for collecting. I think they made only 1200 coupes total, any idea on how many Turbo GXP ones? In a decade or two, this would still turn heads, and turbo makes keeping up simple. - Late Model 4th gen Trans am, like Firehawks and the 2002 collector edition seems to still be holding value. With little hope of the Trans Am coming back now with the current Camaro debut, might be future rare American muscle. Honda: - s2000cr (club racer), more rare version of a fairly popular car. I think the simple drivers oriented cockpit, high rev and other aspect of this car would make it popular in the future, like some simple sports cars of yester-year are today. - 99-00 civic si. Likely closest to a real US si we got. Many totaled and many riced out, 20 years from now current Gen Y people may be looking to relive their youth, like many over 50 now are buying up American muscle, and a clean example is already hard to find. Event better would be an Integra Type R of same vintage. Nissan: - GTR A bit pricey, I'm also concerned about it being over electronically gizmoed, all of which will seem funny and Atari like 20 years from now IF still working by then. I think those that are more "mechanically magical then electronically will likely fair better down the road. However, it sets a standard, has cult following, first time for US market and a fairly rare Nissan so I guess it goes on my list for now. - 2010 Nismo 370Z 350hp, no added weight, likely the best z yet. Old clean special Z cars seem to do well today. Lotus: - Elise, feel like they made too many, but a real and simple drivers car that is still rare compared to regular production cars. Maybe a clean Type 72d (signed and only like 50 of them), or exige s version to separate it from the "regular" ones for some more future collectible value. Will think about more makes and models soon, feel free to share. Trying to keep it to cars that are reasonably affordable also, its easy to pick out super or hyper cars that are rare.
