A story in last week's Detroit Free Press said that Hagerty Insurance, specialists in classic car insurance, has released their annual list of "Future Classics": new cars that will likely become collectible.
They are (in no particular order):

Cadillac XLR-V Roadster
Lotus Exige S
Audi S5
Mustang Shelby GT500
Corvette Z06
Smart
Subaru Impreza WRX STi
Honda S2000 CR
Pontiac Solstice/Saturn Sky
Dodge Charger Super Bee

My '04 has tons of life left, but I've already started to think about how the heck I'm going to keep this thing for the long haul. Of course it's going to have a gazillion miles before it's a classic but I'd eventually completely restore it and turn it into a show peice. Maybe a little outlandish to think about but I'm way too in love with it's style and performance to ever let it go.

Hopefully my sonic will never die, she will just get new parts like 8000rpm STI engines and 6speed with DCCD :)

See, now that's the spirit. Not like these non-enthusiasts and other demographic markets that Subaru's going after these days.

I don't think I've seen another Sedona red WRX on the road for a couple years.
Neither have I.

My g/f's neighboring apartment complex always has a stock SRP wagon sitting outside, but other than that I think I see maybe 2 or 3 different ones a year. And I live in a rather populated area too.

I always loved that color and it's so damn rare now. SRP and Aspen White bugeyes are going to be the real classics IMO.
I've always told myself that if I totalled my car or it was stolen (in which case I would probably turn around and get another used wrx) I would wait it out for a chance at a SRP.

Isn't sonic yellow much rarer than SRP? I do like the glow in the light red as I like to call it.
im not sure how many SRP were made but sonic yellow was 1500 imported only in 03 and less than a 3rd of those were wagons.

I tend to agree on Bugeyes becoming the classics in coming years. They are already sought after (which amazes me) and they helped usher in a new era of teenage tuning that was very dormant (not dead, just dormant) since the 70's. Later on down the road, nostalgia is going to play a large part in what becomes a classic car. In 30 years, the WRX fanatics of today are going to salivate when they see an old Bugeye for sale.

I can only remember seeing maybe 5 SRP bugeyes on the road since they were new. I'm not sure how Subaru worked their color demographic, but a really good portion of yellow ones made it our way. There are a ton of them over here. I attended a large colonial park meet years back. As expected, I had the only SRP there, but about 5 yellow cars showed up.

From my understanding, they only made 500 Blaze yellow, 1500 Sonic yellow, and approx. 500 SRP cars. The SRP wasn't a popular color in the US as it didn't appeal to the younger crowd that they were targeting.
