    Default which car always had high resale value ? what makes it has high resale ?

    Which car always had high resale value ?

    There are some cars that don't count:

    for example, Ferrari 458. yes, you can drive it for 2 years and sell at MSRP. but in reality, you have to pay over MSRP (or some of those Ferrari BS like having to buy an used POS Maserati before they will let you buy a regular 458, so in reality you are losing money) when new.

    super cars: Enzo, P1, 959 and so forth. not something we can afford (okay, most of us). W also don't know what the rich has to jump through the hoop to buy one anyway.

    cars like E30 M3 also don't count. it was down in value forever, took 20 years before price started climbing. so let's leave it out of this thread.

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Ford GT - that car NEVER sold under MSRP since new.
    S2000 CR. it sold for under MSRP not for now, before jumping back up in price.

    what other cars are there ? what makes it special ?

    M coupes offered by BMW have never dipped considerably low for resale. They've also kept their worth and accrued more over the years.
    Do you understand?

    Not exactly. The price crashed considerably during the recession. I sold a Z3 M coupe for $13K and a Z4 Mcoupe for $23k. The z4 new was a very slow selling car. BMW has a hard time selling it. I paid $15K below MSRP for the 2007 Mcoupe with all the trunk money BMW threw at the cars. Z4M prices have skyrocketed recently but so has every other used sports car. The S52 Z3M has not really kept up with the S54 cars. Also the rear trunk floor and diff falling out from under the Z3 cars also hurts value.

    My list.

    Supra
    NSX
    Long Hood 911s
    MR2 Spyder 2zz turbo
    Mazda RX7 FD
    Porsche 911E

    Pretty much any good P car has gone up 30-50% in the last couple years. The 996 c2 is about the only exception. That's why I just got one. But even they're creeping up.

    For quite a while, a 993 has been worth about twice what a comparable 996 is worth, even though the 996 will be, on average, 7 years newer than the 993 and have less miles. Is that changing?

    Car for car, a 993 is about 20k more than a 996. But I just bought a really clean, low mile 996 for 25k. I love it so far. You can get early 80s 911s (pre g50 trans) for ok prices still.

    Cars mentioned so far all had huge depreciation for the first 10 years. I was asking about cars that always had good resale value.

    example: AC Cobra was cheap for first 10 years. Wasn't till 80s, price shot up. Not talking about those cars.

    Ford GTs were going for 80s and 90s at one point. Anyone who bought one then banked good. They went up 100%+ in the span of 2-3 years if memory serves correctly.

    I love the car personally but don't really feel the car is as fast as I am imagining it to be in my head.
    Do you understand?

    I bought a 1967 Fiat Dino Spyder in 1981 for $7,250-. Had fun driving it for 7 years. I sold it in 1988 for $38,000- when it wasn't running with a broken rear axle. For those of you that are not familiar with the car, it had the same engine and gearbox as a Ferrari Dino, but mounted in the front, and an attractive Pininfarina designed body.

    This is not the exact car I owned, but after I repainted it, this was the color of my car. I wonder what it is worth now . . .
