Porsche 911 Carrera is best classic car investment

The Porsche 911 Carrera RS 2.7 has been the best classic car to invest in over the last decade, says the Discovery Channel.

Marking the 100th car to feature on the digital TV channel’s Wheeler Dealers, the show’s team picked out 20 of the most sought-after classic cars.

Since 2004, the Porsche has had a 669% explosion in price. The Aston Martin DB5 and DB6, famously associated with James Bond, were second and third, with 500% and 478% increases, respectively. Other wise investments were AC Cobras, while Ferrari, Lotus and Jaguar all had cars in the top 10.

Wheeler Dealers presenters Mike Brewer and Edd China buy classic cars at the right price, fix them up and sell them on. A Discovery Channel spokesperson said: “From the much-coveted Aston Martin DB5 to the humble Fiat 500, classic-car owners are sitting on a small fortune, thanks to the boom in the vintage car market over the last decade.”
