Future Classic Cars
Classic cars are an investment like no other. In recent years, the values of certain cars have exploded. Fortunate owners have made enormous profits on particular makes and models, but others have seen lackluster returns.
Manufacturers such as Ferrari, Porsche, and Lamborghini will always grab the headlines, but it’s not only at the top-end of the market that we see cars appreciating. There are plenty of affordably priced cars that are also seeing an increase.
But how do you identify the best cars to invest it?
We love keeping our eye on the classic car market here at The Car Investor. Here’s our take on the best affordable future classics to invest in.
The 80s were an interesting time for Volkswagen; new joint ventures, acquisitions, and sales of the Golf and Polo were going well across Europe. Their flagship coupe, the second generation Scirocco, was also selling well, yet VW had something else up its sleeve.

But every now and again the Japanese manufacturer comes up with something which totally dispels these preconceptions; the superb NSX, for example, or the much celebrated Civic Type R, to name a couple. In 1999 they launched what was to quickly become another of Honda’s illustrious masterpieces, the S2000.
As self-confessed petrolheads we’re bound by unwritten rules stating that we need to have an unhealthy infatuation with Italian sports cars. It’s just one of those things; we’re totally aware that an Italian car built with passion and adoration rather than a German car built with maturity and rationality would be a ludicrous choice to make, yet one manufacturer in particular keeps defying the odds and producing cars that people revere; Alfa Romeo.
