There are some who have made a living out of predicting the future of a car and its impact on the automotive world. A sort of “most likely to succeed” top intended for cars, one which takes into account mostly the collector attributes today's cars will be having tomorrow.
This is what the Hagerty Hot List (Hagerty is an insurance agency for collector vehicles) is trying to do every year: try and see which car will become a collector's item in the future. In other words, which car of the tens launched each year will have, say 20 years from now, a higher value than all the other.
"We have fun each year looking at which new vehicles embody the characteristics of collector cars, to help predict which ones might have classic appeal in 15 to 20 years," said McKeel Hagerty, Hagerty Insurance Agency CEO.
"The Hot List is our prediction for which cars manufactured this year will hold their value and consumer appeal long enough to one day be regarded as collectible."
