Ten bargain cars tipped to could become future classics | This is Money

What you reckon to this list guys, I tend to disagree with most of it but after attending #ohsoretro this weekend and seeing late 80s Datsun Cherry's being loved as a classic I guess anything is possible.

306 GTI definitely but Beetle V5?

V5 is a terrible engine

Current rides:

2003 BMW 330d Manual Saloon Msport
1985 GTI cabriolet black edition (42k miles)
1999 Triumph Daytona 955i Post apocalyptic, rat, brat, scrambler, steam punk, cafe racer

The New Beetle will probably become a classic but if you were to choose an unusual/special one, it would need to be the limited run (250 cars produced) RSi, which has the 3.2litre VR6 and 4wd.

I don't agree with any of them tbh.

Some good cars there, but no, just no.

so basically anything 'sporty' is going to be a classic

Forget them all and get a Y-reg BMW Mini whilst they're @£500-£1000

1983 Mars Red 1.8 Golf GTI
1987 Alpine White 1.8 Clipper Cabriolet

The trouble with doing nothing is that you never know when you are finished.

The 306 I'd agree with purely on the basis of what's happened with 205s.

No mention of Mk1 Audi TT oddly

There is a big difference between a classic and a classic people actually want to buy / own / tune / show

2003 BMW 330d Manual Saloon Msport
1985 GTI cabriolet black edition (42k miles)

OK, the Alfa 159 I can see as it is very handsome.
And the Fiat coupe I also get.
Possibly the Puma; I remember the advertising campaign and thought it was very cool.  It might be 5417 to drive of course, I have no idea.

The rest hold no appeal for me whatsoever.  Never held the Beetle in high regard, either old or new.

I find it very difficult to tell which of the current crop of "new" cars would qualify as classics as my own proclivities tend towards vehicles with corners (i.e. 70s and 80s VAG cars and Fords of similar vintage).

None there for which I'd swap Golfus

Jesus that's a pretty exhaustive list of cars Nobody wants to own

Classic is different to legendary

If you can find a Peugeot 306 Gti that's in any sort of worth having condition even now good luck with that

Fiats? Really, they are so badly built with so many issues even new they will be prohibitive to own and repair even if some are reasonably desirable

Personally I'd buy something that appreciates without the passage of decades

Like the late 90s 911 etc, Mk2 golf gti's  Ford RS models

Things people actually want to own 😂

The saxo vts phase 1 is pretty much the car that brought back the hot hatch from the brink of death, read any of the articles back in the day and it's easy to see why that will be a future classic. I bought one new over an Ibiza GTI (wanted a kiwi green one) in 98 after reading AutoCar's write up. Then sold it for a new mk1 Elise over a used 993 after reading it was the best handling car of the millennium

Subaru Impreza early versions… they have history (rally…. Colin McRae etc) and are fun to drive.  Granted they are boy racer cars but those same kids etc growing up now from those years will want one in the future.

All good bud you?

Got 2 kids now and an empty wallet (nobody told me they are linked!!).  Should be able pop on here now and again hopefully.  Website looks good and works well on my phone.  Got the silver MK1 sorted and I take it out a few times a year.

Future classics is a good question… might be worth grabbing a low mileage motor now if someone has storage.  My car has quadrupled in price!!

I saw a Sierra sapphire cosworth with low mileage go for £100k+ on the news… crazy prices!!!

Calibra is a decent shout as I wanted one when younger but dont think it has the special ingredients to make it really sought after…

I think this first run of Tesla's would be collectable in the future due to being the first all electric car company to produce cars in this volume.  Plus 0 - 60 times sub 3 seconds in cars that look like Saloons…. dont know how you would safely store something with safely with those batteries though.

The 4x4 turbo or the 2.5 v6 irschmer?

I remember a mates older brother having an irschmer back when I was a teen and it felt like a rocket
