997 GT3 RS Gen 2. They're going through roof at present with the 991 both having engine issues and the older ones being PDK only.

I know of one with ~3.5k on the clock that lives in a garage only coming out for the occasional blast that the owner was considering selling... pretty sure he was testing the water @ £140k...

993's are on the up as well... hardly surprising seeings as they look so fucking cool IMO haha

I hear you were holding the prices down, once you sold they were seen as less cuntish so the prices went up!

That's a pisser like

Tvrs seem to have stabilised a bit for now I think.

Older porkas seem to be going mental, but already cost a lot.

Depends how much you want them to appreciate as well. I think possibly an Aston DB7 v12, Lotus Elise, maybe a maseratti of some sort, any of the alfa v6 models and possibly even the bmw z3 will start to go up in price.

I'm no expert, but I'd be looking for something that isn't that expensive currently.

993's are high-ish but I can't see them increasing masses, same with CSL's, they're already at a premium price.

993's are big money, 996's are going up, a car that was 12-15k 5 years ago is now a 20k car.

Lotus Elises are going the same way, holding money well.

Look at the formula of a car, those that arent mass produced and were a bit special will hold there money ie. CSL, Clio V6, Exige, GT3 etc. These Corsa Special Editions, they could sky rocket....

Clio V6 maybe, but that formula doesn't always work, look at Rover BRMs! I say Rover because old Rovers fetch decent money.

I reckon the rover BRM might go up in the price but its not going to be a lot
Range Rover classics (especially the 2 door) are getting into the realms of big money now for one thats not a shed.
I reckon the fiat coupe 20v Tubos will start to fetch decent money soon too
