THE EXPERTS’ 2017 PICKS
YOUR GUIDE TO THIS YEAR’S MARKET MINEFIELD Seven pundits give us their market predictions for the year ahead. If you’re buying or selling a classic in 2017, then you need to read this!
It’s a fascinating time to be watching the classic car market – predicting how prices will develop in the months to come has never been more of a challenge. Some sectors have enjoyed massive growth in values during the last couple of years, strong enough to feel as if they could run and run – but can they? If the market eventually cools this year, how can we predict which models will be among the first to slow? And as the Brexit debates continue, how will our changing economic climate affect the prices people are willing to pay?
To help navigate this challenging landscape, we’ve assembled a panel of market experts from all areas of the classic car world and asked them to describe their vision for 2017. They agreed on some key issues, in particular over the rise of ‘modern classics’ (the 996 Porsche 911 seems to be on everyone’s mind), but their opinions sometimes diverge and Brexit remains a particular enigma.
As demographics shift, buyers change and prices evolve, it’s crucial to keep your finger on the pulse.
