Cars to hang on to – they are going to be classics


The latest news from the UK indicates that the following cars are the classics of the future.

Jaguars – Opportunities abound for left-hand-drive imports from the States where good Series 3 2+2s can still be found for well under £15,000.

First Generation Hot Hatches – The MK 1 VW Golf GTi’s and Peugeot 205 GTi’s are becoming highly sought after by younger collectors.

Interesting Cars from Obscure Marques – The Swallow Doretti, Jensen Interceptor, Peerless GT and Daimler Darts have all seen greater interest and appreciation.

Early Subaru Impreza WRX – This car was the panelists pick as a latter-day affordable car likely to be a sought after collectible.

1978-89 Porsche 911SC and Carrera 3.2 litre – These models are likely to see appreciation as 1970s Porsche 911s become increasingly unaffordable.
