Hagerty Announces its Annual Hagerty Hot List: Top 10 Future Collector Cars Under $50,000

TRAVERSE CITY, Mich., Jan. 20 /PRNewswire/ -- After witnessing in Scottsdale, Arizona last week a 1960 Ferrari 250 GT SWB California Spider sell for $4.95 Million at Gooding & Company and a record price of $660,000 for the first production 1955 Ford Thunderbird at Barrett-Jackson, many car enthusiasts are left wondering who could possibly afford a collector car? With Hagerty's Hot List, you might already have the collector car of tomorrow sitting in your garage.

To help the future collector, McKeel Hagerty, CEO of Hagerty Insurance Agency and a respected collector car valuation expert, has compiled his choices for Hagerty's Top 10 Future Collector Car picks (photos available upon request).

"In creating this year's list we took a look at cars available as new models for 2009 that will have collector appeal in 15 or 20 years," says McKeel Hagerty. "These are mass produced cars with a MSRP of less than $50,000. Included are a wide range of models that span many different market segments."

Hagerty's Hot List:

1. Acura TSX: This could be the car that the young "tuner car" enthusiasts of today choose to purchase as their "tuner collector" of tomorrow.

2. BMW 1-Series Twin Turbo: This is a new car launch that has the right ingredients: superior engineering, affordable price, nimble and fast performance.

3. Chevrolet Camaro: Just like the new Mustang and Challenger, this is a retro throwback that will stand out as a collectible bowtie down the road.

4. Dodge Challenger SRT: Mopar enthusiasts have been waiting a long time for this much anticipated tribute to one of the icons of the muscle car era.

5. Ford Flex: This is a different (and we think cool) vehicle for Ford this year. It is edgier than the Edge, and still caters to the growing crowd who cannot decide between a station wagon, mini-van or SUV.

6. Ford Mustang: The 2010 Mustang will be available in early 2009. Even though this is a refresh of the current retro model, it has features never before offered on a Mustang. The interior creature comforts such as dual climate control, impressive stereo/navigation systems, and a back-up camera make this more than just an American muscle car.

7. Mini Clubman S: The Clubman is a slightly larger version of the already popular Mini. Mix this new model with the performance of the "S" model Mini and we're certain this will have a following by collector car enthusiasts.

8. Pontiac G8 GXP: This new affordable family sedan with a 0-60 time of 4.7 seconds definitely stands out in a segment filled with many not-so-exciting competitors.

9. Pontiac Solstice GXP Coupe: The Solstice has been out for several years now, but only in the form of a convertible. The convertible has been positively received and we predict the first year for the new Coupe version will stand out in the future as well.

10. Nissan 370Z: Throughout the nearly 40-year history of the Z car, these always seem to gain collectible status. The new 370Z appears much less an evolution of the previous 350Z and more of a tribute to the original Z car design. We like this Z and expect you will too.

I could see the first year of the "retro" Mustang, Camaro, and Challenger possibly having collector status. Even the Z to an extent with true enthusiasts. Given I don't see any of these cars pulling in the money such as a vintage GT500 or a Mercedes gullwing for two high dollar examples. But honestly the TSX and the Flex, are you kidding me?

This list is questionable in my opinion..

I am currently driving TSX and I know it aint no collectors car..LOL

Default Seriously?

These are the kinds of lists I expect out of MSN autos or some other cheesy site. What about cars like the VW GTI or MazdaSpeed 3, or RX-8 R3?

1. Acura TSX:
Except that any one of them would rather have a Civic Si or S2000.

2. BMW 1-Series Twin Turbo:
Sure, but an M3 would be more collectible and way more fun in the mean time.

5. Ford Flex:
Seriously? By this logic the Pontiac Aztek woudl be a collectible! Ick!

6. Ford Mustang:
This is plausible but with the massive sales of the mustang, it will be the innumerous special editions that will become collectible

7. Mini Clubman S:
Except that nobody likes the Clubman. A John Cooperworks Mini is the one to bet on.

8. Pontiac G8 GXP:
If anybody were to buy one new, and if Pontiac survives

9. Pontiac Solstice GXP Coupe
Very true, though I'd expect most of these to be bought by SCCA club racers or wrapped around telephone poles. It should make the remaining ones more valuable, though I'm not sure they have the charisma to pull it off.

10. Nissan 370Z
The clear winner in this list, just think about how much you want a 240 or 260 and it's easy to see why.
