Sometimes carmakers turn out some modern classics and the market knows it.

While we already know what cars have fallen the most in value in the past decade, we’re starting to wonder what cars have kept the most of their initial sticker? What recent cars have even appreciated in value?


We would assume that the majority of these cars are real diamonds in the rough. They’d be cars that overcome the modern hurdles of heavy weight, numb steering, and too much grip.

Not that we would call a Ferrari California a classic, but they seem to be staying up in price, despite the disposable reputation of me-too Ferraris.

So what car from the last ten years has held its value the strongest?
