I’m sure we’ve all sat back and dreamt of owning a classic. The feeling of cruising along on a bright sunshine filled weekend. Others may have dreamt of snagging themselves a bargain only to turn that grubby tin can into a much sort after car. Following on from this years classic car show we’ve put together a nice selection of cars that we feel will become future classic.
The Volkswagen Corrado is undoubtably one of the best FWD cars about that unfortunately at the time of launch struggled with sales. Luckily this has meant that the VW Corrado over the years has become a rare find. The VR6 is definitely the one to grab although the G60 and 16v are still popular. With prices around £1,500 to £4,000 this is a bargain VW future classic.
Many would argue that the Audi TT is not a classic and we would have to agree. The Audi TT has been a victim over the years to some dodgy modifications and poor up keep, all of which has helped to keep prices low. It is only a matter of time when there will be interest in the Audi TT and prime examples will be much sort after. Although the V6 is an amazing car the 225 Turbo is likely to be the popular choice. Prices at the moment are around £2,000 to £6,000.
The Ford Puma was a bit of a flop for Ford and the limited production has meant that this car was rare from the offset. Rust will undoubtably kill many off over the years and the cheap price of these cars are allowing them to be used as nothing more than run arounds. However Ford enthusiasts are an amazing bunch with a profound respect for the companies history and the Ford Puma is part of that. It’s very likely the 1.7litre with Propeller alloy wheels will be the most popular. With prices between £500 and £2,000 the prospect of this being a bargain classic is high.
Subaru Impreza Turbo
It’s no secret that the Subaru Impreza Turbo is a rallying legend and has a huge following among car enthusiasts throughout the world. Very similar to the Audi TT this model has been subject to poor modifications and dodgy servicing. Thanks to this original examples of the Impreza have become extremely rare. With ample performance and it’s rallying status the Impreza Turbo is likely to be a classic with prices at the moment around £800 to £8,000.
Peugeot 205 GTI
A personal favourite of ours having owned a rare ‘baby blue’ example, the Peugeot 205 GTI is becoming extremely rare to come by. Similar to many other classics modifications throughout the years have meant rare original examples are those that are sort after. Prices are already high however, as arguably the best Peugeot ever they are likely to increase further. Prices currently are around £1,000 to £4,000.
Another VW design on this list is the Porsche 924. Its no lie that the 924 is not as glamorous as the 911 but with numbers decreasing and interest rising the 924 is likely to become a future classic. The best engine to obtain would be the 2.5 litre which is also seen in the 944. With prices around £500 to £4,000 this is a cheap Porsche with lots of potential.
