Hmmm... cars on sale today that will be collectable in the future.
The obvious choices are the C8 Corvette, V8 Mustangs, V8 Camaros, Hellcat Charger/Challenger, the Challenger/Mustang/Camaro with the manual, the Ford GT, Civic Type R, Mazda MX5, Nissan GTR, Acura NSX and the Lotus Elise/Exige/Evora.
The electric Evija will also be collectible due to it being Lotus’ first BEV, the ultra high performance and the low numbers produced (limited to 130 units). And the high end European performance cars such as those from Porsche, Lamborghini and Ferrari will become collectibles by default by varying degrees. The stuff that Rimac is producing will likely be especially collectible. The new Nevera production is starting at the end of this year.
The stuff from BMW, Mercedes and VAG might have some collectible individual models, but not become collectible by default since many are mundane, nothing-special models produced in high numbers.
And for some less obvious choices... The Tesla Model S/X, the Mustang Mach E, Lexus RC F, Lexus LX (the luxury Land Cruiser), the Corolla hatchback with the manual, Ford Bronco, Fiat 124 Spider, Infiniti Q60 coupe, the Blackwing Cadillacs and Hyundai Veloster.
If I had to pick ONE car guaranteed to be highly collectible, it will be the Rimac Nevera. These will be produced in very low volumes at a very high price, they look nice and have ultra high performance. And that’s a recipe for any/all units built being cared for in most cases. And even in cases where one of them gets severely damaged, they are valuable enough to be worth restoring/rebuilding.
And if I had to pick an *attainable* collectible/classic car, then it would be the C8 Corvette.
