Default STI in top ten list of future collectors cars

I searched so if it's a repost I apologize.

The STi hatch won't be a collector car, neither will a lot of the cars on that list.

^You can say that all you want, but I bet few people thought that Oldsmobile or Buick would have collector cars. There's only so many Sti's being built so stock one's will be worth some money in 30 or so years, just like the Supra's, RX-7's, and NSX's are right now.

A 2004 STi, no mods, low miles will be a collectable for sure.

I agree with everything on that list except for the S5.

Dodge Charger Superbee?

I think very few cars on that list will actually be "collectible". Low production numbers alone does not a collectible car make.

Totally agree, if any Audi would make that list, I'd say TT or R8, the TT was the only car in the lineup that has any semblence of a soul or following, even the S line went to bankers and lawyers instead of enthusiasts for the majority of cars sold.

But at the rate that STI's are dropping off the radar thanks to impounds, confiscations, thefts, strips, accidents, etc., I'm pretty sure the STI will be on the endangered list pretty soon.

Yup. Replace the S5 with an R8 for sure.

I think the list should read more like this:
(These are all current production cars, excluding $100k+ cars)

Ford Mustang Bullit
VW GTI (A pioneer of the dual clutch movement)
Challenger SRT8
Solstice GXP
STI w/ BBS (Why the **** did they offer it w/o?!)
Evo MR
1 Series (say what you want!)
Z06, ZR1
GTR
Porsche Cayman S
Z71 Suburban (Do you really think these will be around in 30 years?!)

To be honest we will never know untill 30 years from now. I doubt the people who bought a 240Z back in the day thought that it would be a collector car a few decades later

You missed something if you think the only thing those cars had going for them was low production numbers.

I'd expect all the EVOs and STis to be collectors, but we'll see.

i don't think the bullitt's of today will be worth much in the future. the '00 cobra r had much more going for it and it's not even doing very well for resale value. now, it's only been about 8 years but still. the '95 r's have seen some increase in value but that could be because you needed to be an official racer to be able to get one at the time.

the current bullitt's and mach's have their neet pieces (suspension, cobra motor in the mach, etc) but i'm not sure they have the ability to become a collectors item in the future.

the KR may have that potential but it would definitely take 30 years to get any kind of roi considering the mark ups that dealers were putting on them.

^ I was strictly thinking of current production cars. No doubt the R's and such will be collectables.

Every once in awhile, a car company creates something special. The U.S. version of the STi? Perhaps...

I like the '04.

No way is the Bullshi..err, bullit on that list. It's a poorly re-hashed remake of an original. It has what? 10 extra hp for 3grand more? Yay!

You can't trust CNN for car related ANYTHING. The only thing news companies (except for Fox) are good for is liberal propagandist bull****

I think you guys are missing the point.

collector car

In 20+ years, people aren't going to buy an 04 or 08 STi and do a frame up restoration so they can take them to car shows and display them in garages. That is what a collector car is, something that has a lot a value and is almost too valuable to drive.

I totally believe that they will be desirable and people will want them, especially if performance goes the way of the dodo in 30 years.
People will buy them as a cheap fun car to drive, but not a collector car.

In 20 years our STis will be about like Dodge GLHs. You'll never see an STi selling for more than its original sticker price.
