GT cars from the late 20th Century

Hey Colin,

Now the Porsche 928 has started to climb in value, do you think other cars, like the BMW 850 will also appreciate??

Thanks,
Larry

Hi Larry,

Yes, absolutely. In fact they already have. The BMW E24 6 Series cars, especially the M6 variant, have been appreciating at a good pace. And, as I dove into in my column in the January/February 2018 issue of Hagerty magazine, it is always a pretty safe bet that the value of most next generation versions of interesting cars will trail the appreciation curve of their older siblings. Which means the E31 8 Series Coupes are bound to follow in due time.

That said I never recommend buying a car simply because you think it will be worth more in the future. Because none of this is guaranteed, and nothing is more foolish than buying a car you don’t like!

Sincerely,

Colin
