All credibility lost in the story when it got to car 6. The BRZ/FRS/GT86 isn't going to be a future classic.

I just saw this on Yahoo and thought I'd check in here to see if you guys got the news. Sure makes me wish I had gotten one when they were available. My 2012 135i with M-Sport and Premium packages and Bose audio came in at what a 2010 1M would have cost. And I couldn't get it in orange.

You want a front-engines RWD small car that actually is/will be a future classic: buy a Miata, or BMW Z4 M Coupe.

Z3M por favor

LFA. unattainable...$$$$

And where is the 997 GT3 CS/RS?

Miata /MX5 are great small agile cars but I like to have a bit more grunt. Same goes for BRZ/GT86.

Cheers
Robin

I second this notion. BRZ? Really? Whoever made that list must drive one and wanted to squeeze it in at the end.

Also, we have been illuminated by a hidden fact that the article provides us: 1M was indeed available back in 2010, not after March 2011!

Normally aspirated motor, front engine, rear drive, manual transmission, reliable... You forget NA motors are going away, this will be a classic too. Remember Mustangs were reasonably priced secretary cars made in high numbers.....look now.
