The value of a Porsche 911 Carrera 3.2 cabriolet would have tripled in the space of six years. Porsche
Why such a craze for the sports cars of old? If they are far away to claim the same performance as their descendants, their power level is more consistent with current traffic conditions. They are also lighter, less assisted, and their design is reminiscent of a bygone era wake up memories to some. But these vehicles are paying today a high price.
A Porsche 911 Carrera 3.2 cabriolet has been sold for only € 23 000 in 2012, while a similar model has sold for 65,000 euros in 2018! Its value would, therefore, have tripled in 6 years. Same phenomenon for the Ferrari 308 GTB, a copy of which is exchanged against € 24 000 in 2008 (in very good condition!), then in 2018, a car with a prancing horse was sold by the house of Oléron for 69 000€.

Another example that should be the reaction of the drivers in traffic: a berlinette Alpine 1300 from 1971 was sold for 26,000 euros in 2006, while a model produced the same year was awarded eur 53 000 in 2018. The auctions are not interested to youngtimers (to be translated by the cars of the 1980s-1990s). This category has the wind in its sails, and the small sports as the Peugeot 205 GTI, Volkswagen Golf GTI and other BMW 3 Series “E30” exchange now against are plump. This is even more true in the case of a rare special edition.
At its launch in 1981, the Volkswagen Golf GTI Oettinger” was worth the equivalent of 31 780 euros. In 2018, a copy was sold for € 35,000 at auction. The car was thus returned to its original value, and even has a little exceeded. More impressive, the Renault 5 Turbo 2, which used to cost the equivalent of 34 505 euros to its release in October, 1982, has been sold for 60 000 euros in march, 2018 under the hammer of Osenat. In the case of a Renault 5 Turbo of the first series, it is trading today easily against 100 000 euros!
special Models, vehicles with a low mileage original, having had a famous owner, or being from the first year of production may also break records. Last year, a Citroën ID 19 with 37 000 km on the odometer was sold for 44,000 euros at auction, while a 2CV Type-A 1949 (first series) has been sold for 66 000 euro!
