COLLECTIBLE CARS- Are they worth the investment?

18,915

Asked by Nov 24, 2015 at 02:21 PM about the 2009 Subaru Legacy 2.5 GT Spec. B

Question type: General

Are there any collectible Subaru cars out there ?     Or any car for that matter?  
When you consider the price,   maintenance,  insurance and everything else,   
the return on your investment is not particularly good,   unless you've
purchased a vehicle with a  special provenance like say a car Paul Newman
once owned?     By the way,   I've listed below this special edition 2009 Legacy
2.5 GT1,   I don't own this car.   Just wanted to start a dialog on this subject.

I can't imagine there are too many Subaru's that are collectible. Some of the really old oddball cars are a curiosity but I doubt they are worth much. Notable race cars with a history and documentation would definitely be collectible. With collectible cars desirability and rarity determine the value.

The link does not work but I found it anyway. I have found that predictions of collectability of new cars are almost always wrong. Sort of like those visions of the future that Popular Science puts out! No doubt a nice car though.

Maybe the FRS will continue to sell so poorly that they'll be odd semi-collectibles, but I doubt it. Deleting AWD was a serious mistake, as competing with the likes of the delightful new Miata shows.
