Here is the Hagerty Hot List- A Decade in Review (complete with a brief description of why each car was chosen):
1. 2000 BMW M Roadster - The with a 0-60 time of around five seconds is a Gen-X Shelby Cobra.
2. 2001 Corvette ZO6 - The enthusiast publications were shocked by GM's willingness to sell essentially a race-ready Corvette straight from the factory.
3. 2002 Pontiac Firebird WS-6 "Ram-Air" - The Firebird burned bright in its last year-- this was the most powerful Firebird ever produced GM claimed it was rated at 325 horsepower.
4. 2003 Mini Cooper S "JCW" - because anyone who drives one of these cars walks away with a silly grin. It just begs to be driven hard and often.
5. 2004 Cadillac CTS-V - This is the Cadillac for the Corvette enthusiast who has to haul around kids and their gear.
6. 2005 Acura NSX - The NSX was the first production car to feature an all-aluminum chassis, suspension and body, and was produced from 1990-2005 with very little changes throughout its 15 year run.
7. 2006 Dodge Ram SRT-10 (viper powered pick-up) - . With 500 horsepower and even more torque straight from the factory, these trucks would run less than a 14 second quarter-mile and easy modifications put them into the 12 second category.
8. 2007 Ford Shelby Mustang GT 500 - With its retro looks, 500 horsepower, and Shelby's autograph on the dash, this car introduced the younger generation to the glorious racing days of the 1960s.
9. 2008 Dodge Challenger SRT8 - When compared to all the retro inspired muscle cars of this decade, our vote is for the Challenger as it most closely resembles its first generation ancestor.
10. 2009 Pontiac Solstice GXP Coupe - With the death of Pontiac announced toward the end of this decade, their last true sports car was the Solstice GXP.
"Since our first Hot List in 2007, we've chosen cars that have peaked the interest of Americans and that we anticipate will be collectible in the future,” stated McKeel Hagerty, CEO of Hagerty Insurance Agency.
