Default STI Makes Top 10 List of Future Collector Cars

Are you Driving Tomorrow's Collector Car?

Hagerty Insurance Announces its Hagerty Hot List: Top 10 Future Collector Cars

TRAVERSE CITY, Mich.
, Jan. 29 /PRNewswire/ -- In January hundreds of thousands of car enthusiasts flock to the Scottsdale/Phoenix area to put in the ultimate bid for some of the rarest and most beautiful cars in the world. They are paying homage to this internationally attended event which yields world records for high sales in almost every collectible vehicle category. The high sale this year went to a 1959 Ferrari 250 GT LWB California Spyder for $3.3 million. Hagerty Insurance has announced its picks for the Hagerty Hot List: Top 10 Future Collector Cars. The list was created to advise consumers what hot cars of today will remain desirable in the next 20 years. With Hagerty's Hot List, you just might already have that future collectible sitting in your garage. All you have to do is wait...

Could you have tomorrow's hottest collectible sitting in your garage? To help consumers answer that question, McKeel Hagerty, CEO of Hagerty Insurance Agency and a respected collector car valuation expert, has compiled his choices for Hagerty's Hot List which includes picks from today's current cars on the road.

"Many consumers could be driving a future collector car right now," says Hagerty. "Our goal was to find cars that are currently on the road but may be considered nostalgic in 15 to 20 years. Each car on Hagerty's Hot List possesses a 'buzz,' a Wow Factor that resonates with consumers of all ages, many cars being daily drivers that turn heads already."

In determining the Hagerty Hot List, Hagerty analyzed the reasons today's collector cars are such hot commodities: pop-culture popularity, limited production numbers and the style of the next generation of collectors. The company included a wide range of models that span market segments and price ranges: cars that are more affordable, fun to drive and still enticing for future generations.
Hagerty's Hot List:

-- Cadillac XLR-V Roadster

-- Lotus Exige S

-- Audi S5

-- Mustang Shelby GT 500 KR

-- Chevrolet Corvette Z06

-- Smart

-- Subaru Impreza WRX STi

-- Honda S2000 CR

-- Pontiac Solstice/Saturn Sky

-- Dodge Charger Super Bee
"In a time when all the major manufacturers are fiercely competing for market share, we wanted to pick some modern day driving machines that grab drivers' attention now and will continue to do so down the road," says Hagerty. "The cars on this list have all the right ingredients to be looked upon by the next generation of enthusiasts as cool cars to collect."

Hagerty is the leading insurance agency for collector vehicles and boats in the nation and host to the largest network of collector car owners. Hagerty offers collector car insurance, financing and roadside assistance, as well as a variety of useful information resources. The company works proactively on hobby legislation and supports the Collectors Foundation, a nonprofit organization dedicated to preservation of the hobby. For more information, call 800-922-4050 or visit http://www.hagerty.com.

Smart...lol

The cars that will be collectors in the future will be cars that we cant afford now, but will be able to in the future. The Smart car will be everywhere in 2-3 years. Cars that should be on the list will be the Supra, GT-r, Viper.

Yes, its been out. Only Grey Market though. They have only recently been offered as a truely "new" vehicle in the US.

The guy was right, they'll be everywhere in a few years and in no way will be "collectible."

i agree with the viper comment but only if they stop making them...all classic cars that go for big buck are cars that they stopped making for one reason or another...and they are almost always limited productions...

Where did they say these would be expensive/exotic collector cars?

I'm pretty sure people collect dodge darts, '54 Chevy Trucks, etc

Hell, the 360 can be considered somewhat of a collector item.

You people need to think far far down the road, just because it doesn't seem like it now...

The cars that go for big bux at the auctions (excluding the uber rare exotics like the gull-wing Mercedes, etc) today are the cars that bidders wanted when they were young, but could not afford. So, what that correlates to is the cars that kids want now...

The STi and EVO will be way up there. Others will be the various incarnations of the C6 and possibly some of the higher performance Mustangs. The S2000 will def be up there, and prolly the Lotus (but not as much cause its more of a current adult/enthusiast niche car). I also think the WRX will get a fair amount, but probably not as much as the Civic Si. The SRT-4 will be up there cause of their rarity in the future, and possibly the MS3. Also, don't forget about the Supra. Avid/knowledgable collectors will bid-war on cars like the Starion and the early 4g63 applications. The excessivly huge dollars will go to imported cars from Japan, specifically the Skyline. The GTR will get big bux. I also wouldn't be terribly surprised if some G35s got a fair amount.

It will really depend on where culture is in 40 years though. Right now, its hip to be young. Bidders are trying to recapture their youth and have one last chance at being 'the cool kid with the Camaro.' Perhaps the fact that so many youth have no respect for their elders will cause a resurgence in that (as the kids of now begin to learn from their mistakes). The drive will be on wisdom rather than youth. Increased global and space travel will put compactness and efficiency at the forefront. If this is the case, Hybrids and alternative fuel vehicles (especially the lease-only original incarnations) could become the uber-exotic.

Yes, I know what the Smart car is. That's why I made that statement. When I was in Canada in 2005 they were everywhere. I don't know when Canada got them but it was just as common as a Honda Civic. They are going to be sold in the US of a large scale soon. That's why I know it's not going to be a collectors
car in the future.

They'll be collector cars because they'll be entirely obsolete... gas combustion is on the way out. In 30 years people might want some of the coolest "old-fashioned" gas engine cars. Just look at the Tesla Roadster...

Hell, look at the 98-01 2.5Rs's; they have held their value very well IMO on the open market very well for one's that are low mileage and good condition..

charger super bee? I find that hard to believe.

The only one's on that list that actually have a chance of being future collectors cars are the S2000 CR and the Exige S.

As for the STi. Which year? Pre '02, yeah maybe. After '02, probably not.

So lets get this straight.... an extremely limited edition American muscle car will NOT be a collectors item, but a car that never hit American shores, and thus was not lusted after by the majority of Americans, might be?

can i buy pot from you?
