This will appreciate faster than a Defender I would be willing to bet on it

Yup I definitely wanted a Supra and you could always tell back then that they were going to appreciate right from the start. I actually saw a RHD Supra being driven by a guy my age last year in the city. My buddy had a 300zx with the T or Targa top that he bought while in college and it had appreciated as well by the time he graduated.

Supra's have been $$$ for a while now.

I would look for FD3S (93-95) RX7 to pop, along with S2000 (CR), E36 M3, Imported GC8 Subaru Impreza, Lancer Evo RS, Integra Type R (Or any imported Honda Type R), 2003 Mustang Cobra. I think clean near original models of those will increase in value.

The models you mentioned above don't exactly have the same nostalgia as the big 4 IMO

Acura NSX
Nissan 300zx
Toyota Supra
RX-7

I am sure other vehicles will appreciate but what would make you look in traffic were those 4 cars for sure, especially the first 3. I am not sure anyone was really in love with the rotary engine of the rx-7

Top tier:

300ZX - Z32. Premium for VG30DETT
RX7 - FD3S.
Supra - A80. Premium for 2JZ-GTE

Non Z32 / FD3S / A80's aren't nearly as valuable as the top tier. They just don't have the look, rarity, or power.

The E36 M3 isn't as valuable as the E30 M3, nor is it as valuable as the E46 M3. The E36 is high in popularity with folks who don't have enough money for an E30 or an E46.

I suspect the E60 M5 will have lots of staying power as a future classic, the E39 has already cemented a place.

Red Mitsubishi 3000GT VR4s have always commanded big money as well, although a bit more obscure than the others.

Hmmm OK maybe they haven't been appreciating as much as I thought lately, but still fairly strong ask on this white one. I think many got beat to hell by high schoolers.

I agree with your predictions that those will appreciate very well.

I have already witnessed appreciation with Evo RS, and Integra. GC8 STI (imported from Japan) will also be worth some bucks. I bought a black 2000 Integra Type R in 2005 for $13k, sold it for $22k a couple years later. (not a huge gain). A former customer made about $8k selling his Evo RS. Another former had a S2000 CR that he made some money on.

The FD RX7's will be worth money one day, unreliable engine or not. The car is too good looking and too unique to not be. They can still be had reasonably cheap too. Clean low mile nearly original R1/R2 models.

3000GT VR4 might see something too... maybe

E39 for sure.

Doesn't the E60 have a reputation for being a total POS? We had a former customer buy one that cost him $35Kish . One or more fuel injectors stuck open, hydrolocked engine. Totaled the car. This was maybe 5 years ago.


What about that BMW M Coupe thing? 98-02. I could see that being worth money if clean and low miles.

POS? No.

Anyways, the surviving E60's with good S85 engines will be classics. The car looks fantastic and the S85 sound is totally unique. The last of the V10's. 8000+ rpm redline, dual ITB's, etc. It's not a car for the poor children of rich parents. Eventually a small number of surviving copies in excellent mechanical condition will remain.

Definitely love the M Coupes.

Father in Law has an M Coupe, sweet cars and his is kept in the garage hopefully appreciating in value. It's little tight for me, but a blast to drive.
