Getting back to the GT-R, I could see this as being a car that could retain its value in 30 years for the same reason that muscle cars are priced the way they are today. People later in life will buy the cars they lusted after when they were young but could not afford.

The GT-R strikes me as a car that kids will lust after. The whole Japanese "tuner" thing seems to be to be driven by the young. The GT-R probably seems like the ultimate car to those kids. How many of them can afford a $70k car? Those kids who cannot afford them now may want them later in life. Therefore, whether or not I think it is beautiful or is my cup of tea, I think that the GT-R is a car that in decades to come could be looked back on as being something special.
