- Future classic cars?
What modern cars do you think will become cool classic/ retro cars in the future?
I’ll start with the mk1 Ford Ka… It looked very different when they were first introduced and does not look dated even now, great handling and fun to drive and there will not be many good ones left soon as they rot like mini’s.

Ford Puma. Only about 60,000 ever built, and a fair few got scrapped during the trade-in sceme. The 1.7 Yamaha engine is a beaut, but there were very few of the 1.4 and 1.6 models built, so those might be even more desirable.Posted 5 years ago
Fantastic fun to drive. I’d dearly love to have another one.
If I could afford to run it… 🙁
Edit] oh, and the FRP’s, only 500 built, around 400 still surviving.meehajaMember
as someone with a love of questionable “classics” the key is in special editions, top spec motors and weird stuff. Focus RS, Golf R32, Audi RS6 will still be lusted after in 10 years. My outside choice is probably the smart roadster. not a great car, but unusual and you don’t see so many anymore. Brabus did sick things to them IIRCPosted 5 years agostavromullerSubscriber
Mazda MX5 Mk3, plenty of them about and fun to drive, so that means in the future when most have been scrapped, there will be plenty of people who’ll go all gooey over the few that remain. I mean look how many people make a big deal of Morris 1000’s and they were hateful little things.Posted 5 years agojimc101Member
For the Mk 1 Ka, there are 150K left, but this is fast going down, and all of them seem to have major corrosion issues, around the fuel filler cap is the obvious one, they are like the 00’s version of the Nova, which had huge numbers in the 90’s, now just over 3K left and the numbers are falling fast.
Like the 205 GTI, and numbers are steady for this for some to survive.Posted 5 years agomomoSubscriber

Clio 182, but only cause I’m a fanboi
Clio Williams is already there
The 182 Trophy is likely to become a ‘classic’, limited numbers, critical acclaim from all the magazines. The standard 182, like the 172 has unfortunately become a bit of a chav car, I’m hoping, as an owner of one, that the 172 cup becomes a bit of a classic.
DC2 Integra, Golf R32, Focus RS (mk1&2), megane R26.R, M3 CSLPosted 5 years ago

Dare anyone to list a car that ISN’T ALREADY A CLASSIC!
Don’t think any of the ones I’ve posted are currently true ‘classics’.
Well liked, certainly, but non have started appreciating massively in value yet, though some may have bottomed out.

Mk2 Leon Cupra, had a 07 plate and did 90,000 miles in it, loved it and did not miss abeat. 260bhp as standard, handled superbly, revo’d to 304 bhp for about £ 400, it was mentally fast 160+ and would batter M3’s.
Love the shape in white, no sunroof, not fiddled with, still think about it often and it WiLL be a classic defo. Not many about and off the radar, not to be confused with the common as muck “FR” version.Posted 5 years ago
