    If this has already been discussed im sorry for asking but I'm picking up my sublime cat on Monday and I was thinking let's say I drive it for a year or so and store it for 30+years you guys think they will be worth a lot of money ?

    This car will be a collector's item, but in my opinion, no amount of money will adequately substitute for the sacrificed driving pleasure; Better to enjoy it, to the fullest!

    I'll be dead in 30 years, so I think I'll just enjoy the most awesome ride.

    if your looking to invest I would go with land.. not a muscle car that I could only look at for 3 decades and would still need to carry Comp Insurance and provide storage and maintenance

    0 chance you will get $100,000 for it....

    too many will be produced.

    there may be 20,000-30,000 produced

    it is a limited car right now....but they are making 500 a month.....it wont be limited for much longer and not by next year

    people buying 1970 hemi challengers are baby boomers who missed out in 1970.........in 2045 i doubt any kids today will even care about the HC....they are happy with a Civic with a loud stereo.....i hear kids today arent even getting drivers licenses at 16 much any more....driving isnt a big deal to them like it was to me...

    sorry guys but i think your mint 1 year driven HC will be worth.........$30,000-50,000 in 30 years..........id compare it to a GN....what is a mint undriven one sell for?...$30,000?? GNX's were barely produced and i know they command more


    its a normal production car....most will be owned by weekend drivers (like me).....most will have low miles....most will still exist in 30 years.....

    i just sold my 2011 IE....i saw 1 for sale w/ 300 miles on it....they were asking about what i sold mine for...(and it wasnt selling)....i felt it was sad the guy bought a car, never drove it and is now selling it for -$15k.....while i drove mine 7,700 miles and had a blast.........

    there will always be something better......your HC is not = to a 1970 Hemi Challenger in any way

    nor will the buyers be the same in 30 years as they are today....odds are they will have less $$ in their pockets due to the collapse of Social Security and the Debt.....their baby boomer parents will be living in their basements due to most Baby Boomers having $40k in retirement savings right now.........the world will not be the same as it is today.......Judgement day is coming for the babyboomers and its the next gen. who is going to suffer for it........they wont want your HC

    No. Zero chance. Impossible. If this was a rare limited edition, then you'd have a case. But just have a look at prices of GT500s -- let's remember they don't have THAT much less power than Hellcats. They're going down just like any other used car. I read recently of an owner who shrink-wrapped a 1990 Corvette ZR1 with less than 500 miles on it. Remember that car, with the Yamaha-designed heads? It was incredibly expensive for the day ($59K, about $109K in 2015 dollars) and thus way fewer were made. That car went up for auction last year and fetched something like $55K -- a horrible investment.

    As cool as the Hellcat is, you're being foolish if you think it's a good investment. Investing in low yield 30 year bonds will net you more, for sure. If you get the car, just have fun with it and accept the fact that its value is going to drop for many, many years to come.

    Personally, I do not care what the car is worth in 30 years. I am going to enjoy it NOW. Life is way too short to do otherwise. Your mileage may vary.

    This form of car ownership is comparable to not having sex with the woman you marry to save her for the next guy. It really makes no sense whatsoever.

    Same thought went into the viper, z06 anniversary vets, anniversary corvettes, 6 speed challengers and to no avail. On the other hand the Ford GT has gone through the roof or will that change since their brining it back in 2016. Drive and enjoy.

    True. I don't understand the concept of garage queens...This car was made to be enjoyed not stored.

    Great idea. Store it under a cover and pull it out in 2046. Most of us here will be driving ours and some of us, me included, will be dead.:p
