Future classic car?
I reckon in another 10-15 years that petrol engined cars will be be on the decline and those that remain will be ultra efficient units linked to a large hybrid electric motors.
So just as we celebrate the flying scotsman and the mallard as the pinnacle of steam engines, what will we remember as the best of the petrol driven cars?
For me its the BMW M Coupe from 1999.Posted 7 years agogarage-dwellerSubscriber
The original Golf GTI and Peugeot 205 1.9 GTI
Performance, practicality and smiles for the masses how can you not appreciate that.
Of course all the pugs will have dissolved in rust or caught fire from electrical problems by then (those that haven’t been subject to a spot of reverse parking at the side of a wet b-road).Posted 7 years agospandex_bobSubscriber
There’s an F40 in a show room I have to drive past on my way to work; the (new shape) GT40 next to it looks pretty dull in comparison.
Back on topic; Honda NSX will surely be a top drawer classic, as will macca F1. If you’re after a more base-level classic (a la Mk2 escorts / moggie minors) then maybe early imprezzas and evo 6/8/9?Posted 7 years ago
MX-5 could be the equivalent of MGB, S2000 the equivalent of a TR6?hexhamstuMember
Some of you are mad! Who said a ford focus??
I’d say the Audi UR Quattro has to be up there? But if you had to pick a single petrol engined car, it would be the Ferrari F40 hands down.
If you read the OP, it says what will be remembered after petrol cars as we know it are gone, not what car will be a future classic (it just says that in the title to confuse you).Posted 7 years ago
