Cool cars that have plummeted in value.

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

How about the opposite of cars EXPLODING in value. What cars are steals?

 

Bentley and Aston Martin are two that come immediately to mind. Those cars seem to lose about half their value the second you buy them. I've seen V-12 Mercs that were practically free. Did the other thread mention the VW Phaeton super cheap, but apparently a nightmare to own.

Steal is a relative term.  Many, if not most of the cars that value plummets are either:

 

Highly unreliable - Think Range Rover

 

Have very high maintenance costs - Think all you mentioned.  Just keeping that V12 Merc in tires will cost you a fortune

 

All of the above - Think Range Rover again

 

After a few years of owning one of these things what you paid for them is trivial compared to what you spend just to keep them running.

I know.  I have to wonder what could have been had they not been blackballed/dangerous.  We might still have Corvairs and no Cameros today had they not flopped after Nader's reporting..

BMW Z3's. You can find a nice example late 90's version for not much more than a Miata. 

 

Porsche Cayenne Turbo models are stupid cheep compared to what they listed for new.
