Classic Porsche, Rolls-Royce, and Ferrari Models Are Losing Steam

A Hagerty report illuminates 10 surprising vintage cars that have nowhere to go but down in the collector market.

As anyone who follows the collector car market has noticed, it’s cars from the 1970s, ’80s, and ’90s that are white-hot in their popularity. For that matter, anyone following vintage cars on social media has probably noticed it, too.

Cursory glances through Bring a Trailer auctions and the value ratings on Rally Rd. show double-digit percentage jumps and thousands of dollars’ worth of pricing spikes on things such as  1990s-era Toyota Supras and the Ford Mustang 7-Up Edition. According to the most recent update to the Hagerty Price Guide, the bible for those who track collectable cars, 24% of cars from the 1970s experienced double-digit growth since January 2018, and 38% of cars from the 1980s increased in price by a significant amount. Together, the two decades show the most growth of any collectable era.
