ITT: Future classics
In 30 years, it's going to be damn near impossible to find a clean one.
The 90s Japanese sports cars. Supras, GTRs, NSXs and RX7s.
With the way the majority of modded cars end up we wont have any left. Too much corner cutting, too much half assed builds, too much "i dont give a fuck unless i can skid". Pretty much if you want to have a future classic you needed one 5 years ago because its already pretty fucking scarce. Personally ill pick up a few s13s and hope i can find a legit 180sx that i can garage until im 50, because god knows there wont be parts for any of these. Now im sad
Muscle cars went through the same shit, the numbers have to be cut down in order to for the survivors to appreciate.
Honestly though, I feel like the collector car market is one huge speculative market that is waiting to crash.
Boxer engine goes brrrrrrrrr brrrrrrrrr brrrrrrrrr
Miatas are appreciating? aren't they the best selling sports car on the face of the earth? (which makes them the most common) couldn't you build a giant death star out of them destroy it and still have a lot left over?
>yfw this thing is already appreciating
Goo-net-exchange had these prices, which are mostly between 10k and 20k USD. Would these be 30k with shipping prices? I've never imported before and wanted to get one of these since they're legal in Canada now.
5 speed RS 7 and 8 are pretty cheap, a little more than a wrx but not as expensive as 6 speed GSRs
there is a japanses used car site that can calculate shipping, dont remember the name
you still have to pay taxes
This site said it included Japanese sales tax in the prices.
Snek might become a future classic if Chysler discontinues them for good.
>so little were sold throughout its life-time
>not many were built in general
>they made some pretty impressive achievements that will establish a cult following of its own
>some regard them as america's first super-car
GTS-R was a Homologation special. not sure how much they go for or if you can even find them at all.
Denial of what exactly? Most cars listed are old as it is and are not yet classics. Despite this, you think a car that came out a 2 years ago will be a classic. I don't think you understand what a classic car is, and no being 25 years old isn't the only requirement.
They're suppose to end in 2017.
On one hand, it's sad to see the biggest middle finger to modern automaking go. On the other, I'm glad it ended on a strong note. The last gen went out with a bang.
You are in denial that the 86 is popular, has a healthy aftermarket therefore ensuring a long shelf life, and that they are being purchased and destroyed by young people. Just because you don't like it doesn't make any of those things not true.
What is this
The Evo is first associated with street racing and last associated with business suits
No escape? You can't leave once you get in? Is it that exciting, or is this a fault with the locks?
Of some kind.
If you ran over a twig in an Evo, you'd know what sex feels like.
these will be popular with modders in the future
30 years from now this will practically be a collector's car
this will be something like a cult classic with future EV enthusiasts
How has this godmachine not been posted yet
You forgot the E46 M3. Although there are a shit ton of them compared to the E39 M5 (supposedly there are less than 10,000 M5s in the US) it's also the last naturally aspirated inline 6 M3 that will ever be made.
>impossible to find a clean one
The problem is that as soon as that "clean one" is bought the owner will immediately ruin it with shitty mods. But they don't think said mods are shitty, because those are "their" mods.
It's only "tasteful" to you.
I remember reading a comparison between a couple mid nineties classics a few years ago where they miraculously managed to find someone with an unmodified Supra. Which the owner had just bought and said he'd be fucking up almost immediately after the magazine's tests.
i guarantee half the fags who buy these in 10 years won't be able to maintain them and they'll drop into 3000GT territory (i.e. mostly fucked)
>mfw the BRZ/FRS came out just two years ago
