What Car Are You Waiting To Depreciate?

Sam Smith explained earlier why the Bugatti Veyron is so crazy expensive. Unfortunately, it'll always be expensive. Most cars, thankfully, get cheaper before they get expensive again. What car are you waiting to see depreciate?

Not to keep beating the drum on this one, but we really want a Cadillac CTS-V and there's no way any of us are going to buy a new Caddy anytime soon. A new Caddy is for older people (well, except for Wert's mom). An older caddy is for newer people. Did you see the Cadillac CTS-V Sport Wagon Video? Yeah, hotness. It's the car we'll remember as the start of the American resurgence and, with the advent of more environmental standards, possibly a car near the end of unbridled fun. For us, though, it's just too expensive. Thankfully, luxury car owners change their rides like the rest of us change our oil. And look! First-generation 400 HP models are going for around $15-20K on eBay Motors. When this generation goes down in price it'll be hard to resist.


What are you waiting for? How long will you wait? What price do you want? Let's get FRUGAL!
