‘Watch as the rare mod­ern clas­sics fly’

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - This Week - WAYNE LAM­PORT STONE COLD CLAS­SICS

‘Mod­els we will be watch­ing in 2017 are those that have had a pe­riod in the dol­drums. Prime ex­am­ples are 996 Porsche 911s and early Boxsters, E36 BMW M3s, Volk­swa­gen Cor­ra­dos (par­tic­u­larly the VR6) and Mit­subishi Star­i­ons. Any­thing that was good in its day but is now vir­tu­ally ex­tinct will be a good buy. ‘Cars we see slip­ping are tra­di­tional clas­sics, such as the Jaguar E-type, that have risen sharply de­spite there be­ing many good ex­am­ples on the mar­ket. ‘ The rea­son for this is the shift in de­mo­graphic. Tra­di­tional clas­sics are bought by older gen­er­a­tions, but cus­tomers in their 30s-50s want cars from the 1970s-1990s, hence huge re­cent prices for RS Cos­worths, etc.’
