    360 was another V8 ferrari in their line of v8's.

    Z8 had a limited appeal to begin with.

    GT has appeal across many more people, will have been Ford's first and last supercar for a long time, etc.

    Z8s are ugly and there are a lot more 360s than Ford GTs so the answer is obvious to me.

    good point... i guess the problem would be thats another "special" v8 in a line of "special" v8 ferraris. The 430 scud and I assume there will be a 458 somethingeruther

    I think the z8 is the only one with the really small production numbers to be valuable in 20 years. I don't know how many people will want one but if you do, there won't be too many available.

    I agree. (And I would want one, if I had garage space/budget for more cars.)

    Ford GT (modern road car version) is desirable, but it looks like nearly everyone bought them as an investment, so they'll probably always be readily available in like-new condition,

    As for the 360, they make the 308 look rare. And I think technology has already passed them by, something the older cars (Boxer, 246/308/328) don't have to worry about.

    First off they built more Z8's then they did Ford GT's 6k to 4k. I do think that both of those cars will have a market and demand that will drive the price of them up. Ford GT's are one of the only cars that are selling for more money than their MSRP after 5 years! Not too many cars can say that in this day and age, and I don't see that changing. The Z8 is a lot like the BMW 507 and collectors pay big money to get their hands on them. The 360 while a great car, is just like the 355, 348, 328 etc before it. All IMO of course.

    ^^^ It is remarkable how firm the Ford's price has been, steady at ~140-160 (asking) forever.

    Stupid question:

    Can you get a Ford GT serviced at any Ford dealer or only certain ones?

    I'm sure the dealer would require a certified technician much like Dodge does with it's Vipers and Crossfires. I think it would be up to you though to make sure they truly are certified.

    Anyone have a comment about what appears to be remarkably cheap looking switch gear in the GT?

    Ford GT wins this one, while I think the Z8 will have collector appeal as well. When you boil it all down, the big money usually follows the prettiest cars, and stays away from uglier ones. Look at what cars are now worth a lot: Miuras, Daytonas, curvaceous 365 vs boxy 400/412, 275GTB, Series I E-types, Bugeye sprite vs. squared off Sprite II, etc. The pretty car is always worth the most, whats underneath the skin is usually a secondary consideration.

    The 360 will be cheap just like 308's are now, maybe even cheaper due to relatively large production numbers. Now the CS may be a different story, maybe comparable to todays market for a glass 308 vs steel cars.

    Z8 followed by Ford GT. 360 wont even be on the radar.

    Z8 will eventually be looked upon as one of the best looking cars of all time.

    You think so?

    I see quite a few Z8s around and they don't look very special or pretty to me.

    ...but it's probably just me.

    In any case, I voted for the Ford GT.

    I do think so.

    You must live in a very special area to see them. Im in Los Angeles/Beverly Hills all the time and they are a rare sight.

    IMO one of the 5 best looking cars of the past 40 years.

    EDIT: Doh..Monaco. Not much you probably dont see there !

    The whole retro thing seems like it will be odd to look back on. The Z8 and GT look like cars from the 60's but with currently modern construction and materials etc. They are sort of like the equivalent of the Excaliburs and other so called neo-classics, but made by major manufacturers. My opinion is that the GT will hold it's value best as it is a mid-engine super car type car and has the lowest volume. The Z8 will need a lot more years then 20 before it is worth any more then what it is worth now. It should be depreciating. Some people love the way it looks but it is very blah for the money. (I thought it was the Z3 replacement when I first saw it).

    I can understand people not thinking the Z8 will be a classic.

    What i cant understand is how anyone can think the 360 is going to be anything but a $35k car in the future...

    With the chassis problems the Z-8 has, even with limited production numbers it may not hold its value as good as the F-GT, I think the F-GT will appeal to more people down the road..and the 360..they made a ton of them, so I dont see them holding up as well...
