2020 Hagerty Hot List: The 6 collector rides of the future
Which of today’s cars will be collectible in the future? Imagine buying the car of your choice brand-new, driving it for 100,000 miles or more, then selling it for twice what you paid. Does that sound like fiction? It’s not—if the car in question is an Acura Integra Type R, or a fourth-generation Toyota Supra Turbo, or a Porsche 911 “RS America.” Could that kind of lightning strike your next new-car purchase? There’s no way to know for sure, of course, and if your Camry TRD is the toast of Barrett-Jackson in 2060 we will have to admit that our crystal ball had a few cracks in it, but according to our team of valuation and collector experts, the five cars and one motorcycle listed below stand a strong chance of remaining desirable and worthy of respect by generations of enthusiasts to come.

I always remember what a savvy car collector told me one time. If it's hot when it's new, it'll be hot when it's old. Part of the proof there is a used car lot in our area back in the late 50s and thru the mid-60s whose whole front row of cars was all '57 Chevrolets all the time. All colors, body styles and series. He bought every one he could get his hands on. He did this, as I said, for around 10 years. That should have told people something. Later on, he did the same thing with '67-72 Chevrolet short-bed pickups.
