Everyone loves to speculate over which of today’s vehicles will ultimately become a desirable vehicle down the road. And we have the latest list straight from the guys and gals at Hagerty.
The 2017 Future Collectable Cars list hosts a mix of high performance and niche vehicles on sale today, but three Chevrolet vehicles stand out as possible retirement funds in the future.
The 2017 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 landed on the number three spot thanks to its bonkers performance credentials. The Camaro ZL1 is also the most powerful Camaro to ever come from Chevrolet.
Landing at the number five spot is the 2017 C7 Corvette Grand Sport. It’s a no-brainer, sharing nostalgic cues with its 1963 and 1996 predecessors. Though, if there’s one to own, it would be the Corvette Grand Sport Collector Edition.
Finally, a surprise showing was the 2017 Chevrolet Colorado ZR2, which landed at number four. Hagerty cites Americans’ long love affair with pickup trucks as one factor, but the off-road capability the ZR2 houses piques interest as a future collectible. Hagerty states the final factor in its future collectability status will be production volume.
“All ten [vehicles] have that ‘it’ factor that makes them stand out from the crowd,” said McKeel Hagerty, CEO of Hagerty. “In some cases it’s power, in some cases it’s innovation or drivability, but all of them have the qualities that define a future classic.”
We’d add the 2017 Chevrolet SS as a potential collectible candidate, too, knowing this will be the performance sedan’s final year for production. Total units produced may also sit just below 10,000 over three model years.
